    Just West...


    Is anyone watching this show? It's definitely not the best, but its entertaining. 2 of the shops are actually pretty close to me. Though I am not sure I'd buy a car from any of these people...

    I couldn't make it 10 minutes into the show before I started flipping channels to see what else was on. I think I ended up watching a rerun of a movie that I've seen 5 or 6 times and then took a nap. That was how uninteresting Texas Car Wars was for me.

    Mildly interesting. The auctions are 100% fake or else there are only 3 companies that ever attend. Not SP worthy.

    There are many other restoration shows that are much, much better.

    If you want to stay in Texas, Fast N' Loud is a good one that I'm really enjoying. http://dsc.discovery.com/tv/fast-n-loud/about-show.html

    It's British but also good: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wheeler_Dealers Ed, the mechanic on the show is about the best I've ever seen.

    Graveyard Carz http://blogs.discovery.com/velocity/graveyard-carz/ This one is hard to describe. It's car restoration (MOPAR only) meets Jersey Shore. The owner is an idiot savant when it comes to restoration but is also unhinged when it comes to personal interactions. In one episode I watched, he spent 5 minutes describing the differences between an original equipment tiny nut and screw to an aftermarket one. He has absolutely encyclopedic knowledge of every part on every MOPAR muscle car ever made. However, the show is usually only 50% restoration work and the rest is the personality conflicts in the garage. Still, it's fascinating. http://vimeo.com/8595915

    Chasing Classic Cars http://velocity.discovery.com/videos/chasing-classic-cars/ Deals with finding and restoring true classic cars. Lots of Ferraris, Duesenbergs, Shelbys, etc.

    Desert Car Kings http://dsc.discovery.com/tv/desert-car-kings/ I don't think it's currently airing but this is a very good one.
