I first watched it halfway through season 2?

Just set my DVR to record all and I was able to catch up with the 1st Season and the first half of the 2nd Season before Season 2 wrapped up.

I.E., Discovery reruns the heck out of them.

I saw the 2 part F40 thing over the weekend. I would love to watch a show that dealt with supercar rebuilds and repairs. It was pretty cool when they got that big box of parts that was worth like $180,000 or whatever.

I also had a hard time with the changes they were making to the car. Changing the seats and such just seemed wrong on such a rare car. I kinda feel that since the car was totaled, that would be the F40 to do such things to. I just know I wouldn't pay $900k for a wrecked, far from original, F40. Not that I can even afford a $90k car.

I thought that Rolls Royce episode was a little odd. They lower the car, put on some racing rims and a sunroof and he thinks that's going to add $10,000 to the car?

I wonder what people think that buy these cars and then watch the episode the car was in later. I would be embarrassed I bought that Rolls after watching that episode.

I don't understand this show. They find this super rare car supposedly. Only 9 ever made. It was a little convertible called a Woodhill or something. They then chop the windshield, paint it, remove the mounted spare tier, etc... If there were only 9 of any car made, wouldn't it be way more valuable if it was as original as possible?

Also, who is this guy Dennis? Richard's friend with the mega-bucks. That guy must be a multi-millionaire. He bought the F40 and then he pulls $100k out of a suitcase and buys the above car.

I also saw an episode where he paid $5k for a 1970 Lincoln 2 door. He then spends like $13k putting huge rims and air suspension on it. He thought he'd be able to sell it for $50k. That seems crazy. I wonder if he sometimes gets the crazy amounts at auction that he hopes for?

Anyway...I'm not complaining, I still love the show. Anyone know of other car shows similar to this? The thing I like best is they keep the fake drama to a minimum. He tells people they have 2 days to do something, but they don't try to play it up too much.

I believe, Dennis owns the Twin Peaks chain. I believe I remember an episode where Dennis built him a jeep to promote the place.

Someone else owns Twin Peaks, Dennis owns Collins Bros Jeep and has a estimated wealth of 20 million. He sold his Austin Healy at auction for $500,000.oo if you remember he drove that over to buy that Woodhill.

During this episode Richard broke the fourth wall and asked the viewers why you didn't call me and tell me I was going to lose my shirt on this one. He knew he was going to take a hit to the wallet.

Richard seems to be a fan of breaking the fourth wall. Though he also doesn't seem to take himself too seriously, ala OCC.

Grave Yard Carz is pretty amusing. They only concentrate in reviving old Chrysler/Dodge/Plymouth muscle cars.

I had read somewhere that Richard Rawling did an unofficial cannonball run back in 2007. I say "unofficial" because it said the true cannonball run hasn't happened in years. Anyway...that he had the record for it, which I think was just crushed last year if I remember.

I watched an episode last night where he bought a Jaguar that had the record he beat. I did not realize that his buddy Dennis was the one that drove with him in his cannonball run. For some reason, I always felt like Dennis was his fake friend. It was nice to see that they have actually been friends for a while.

Speaking of which, I also came across a picture of Richard and Aaron in g-strings from like 10 years ago.

Yeah..it seems most of the "background" of this show is based on actual reality.

Although I thought Richard and Dennis' cannonball win was back in the early 90's.

*a google search does show 2007*
