Another car show with a fake premise and fake employees. Mark and Tony are real fabricators with talent and skill, but the premise is totally made up. Shawn is a hired actor. Caveman is a general mechanic and friend of Marks recruited for the show. Constance is a SEMA trade-show model & actress who was hired to play the role of female "Engine Specialist", for obvious reasons. She's a muscle car enthusiast who learned a lot about cars from her Dad. She isn't afraid to get dirty, BUT she is NOT a career mechanic or engineer or fabricator like they want everyone to believe. The 10 years of automotive industry experience that she claims to have, is as a SEMA trade-show model and product demonstrator who's Dad owns an auto shop. Furthermore, all of the "buyers and sellers" on the show, are friends and acquaintances of Marks, recruited for the show..... NONE of the vehicles have been sold and are still sitting at his shop in Temecula, CA. The show says he can't sell them until they decide on doing a Season 2. The builds are cool designs by Mark, but otherwise - everything else is FAKE FAKE FAKE. The show would've been WAY better if they would've focused more on Marks creative talents and left out the fake buy-up and sell-up concept. And if they wanted to add a female touch - they should've hired a REAL career mechanic who knows what to do with a blower motor, the difference between dual quads and dual intakes, knows there's no such thing as a 470 Chrysler engine, and knows that it's ridiculous to put a parachute and wheelie bars on a street-driven hot rod.... like seriously. Just sayin'.
Love shows like this, can't wait for more!
