Ohhh, yeah! Let's have more shots of sanding, painting, stringing wiring harnesses, pounding out minor dents, replacing upholstery.............!

That would be some great TV

I love it. It's right up my alley.

I'm hoping this show is still introducing characters and will ramp up some more of the work as we go along. I'm surprised to say this, but this show could almost be an hour and still be pretty interesting.

I just started watching this weekend. I'm shocked, but I'm really liking this show. It's great seeing some of these old muscle cars restored.

Funny, IMO they show everything but cars being restored.

I used to like Overhaulin' because they showed a lot of the actual restoration. But even they showed too much drama and not enough restoration.

Yea, I probably should have said 'restored muscle cars' rather than 'muscle cars restored'.

Maybe they just don't show this part, but I find it strange he buys the cars/bikes without even driving them.

Wish I had the money he does to just offer cash for some of these.

I really like this show and I am not really a car guy. I think Danny is the most interesting of the lead guys on these shows (Pawn Stars, American Restoration).

I must say some of these very cool looking restored vehicles seem very reasonably priced, considering the amount of work that is done on them

Several times over the past few years The Price is Right has given away a restored classic car and the prices weren't as high as I thought they would be either. Here are a few clips:

For example the GTO in the last clip has a retail price of $27,500.

Be honest, would you pull over for a guy who looks like Danny...clothes, hair, bandanna.

Course in this case the driver can see the guy filming.

When I had my Corvette, I'd end up in conversations with other random Vette/Car enthusiasts from time to time. They'd usually just pull up next to me and talk through an open window though. I suppose if they were going to offer to buy my car I might have pulled off to the side if I thought they were legit. People would stop and chat in parking lots sometimes too. Car guys are weird like that.

Season 3 started or at least the initial 2 shows are available to watch.

They did a little staff reshuffling - but I still like it.

perfect show to watch while dinner is being prepared.

Yeah, I am not actually much of a car guy but I love seeing the finished projects. Danny is probably one of the better personalities on the History channel lineup of shows.

I didn't get over there in my two Vegas trips last year but I plan to stop in here and Rick's Restorations in May. My buddy said both are great places to see, unlike Pawn Stars (I went there last year, waste of time).

Is that why you're always late for dinner?

On Spike TV the have a set of shows on in the weekend mornings called "Power Block" that focus on the technical stuff. Good stuff if you like that kind of thing.

The shows:

Muscle car, Trucks, Extreme 4x4, HorsepowerTV, perhaps one more

I was just being snarky at the Pawn Stars folks for turning it into a gift shop of merch for their crap.

Wasn't aiming that as a correction or anything towards you, sorry if it seemed that way.

We did that last year when we went to Vegas. Went by Counts Kustoms in a Taxi, and Danny and Roli were out in their parking lot with a Camera Crew when we showed up. They had the whole block cordoned off so you really couldn't get very close.

We also went to Rick's Restorations and got to see their Gift Shop area and look through the gates into the back lot and we could see all the Coke Machines and stuff. It was kinda fun. We went by Gold and Silver Exchange too, but the line to get in was all the way around the block so we passed as our Taxi Bill was starting to pile up.

G&S Pawn has so many people going through it now, most of the merchandise is really, really picked over from what it used to be. Read somewhere that the show has increased traffic from 100 people a day to 4000.

At least 1/3 of the place is Pawn Stars merchandise, last time I was there in July.

If you must go, go around 8:30 in the morning and wait until 9 when the store opens.
