Mouthy is definitely right. Last night was the 3rd episode and I can already tell a change in his demeanor. I think they told him to take it down a notch. But his mechanics seem to be on the ball! Too bad he lost $5500 on that gasser...I've watched it a couple of times, kinda cool. The owner is a little mouthy, looks like the mechanics know what they are doing?!!
I bout fell over when they bought that black one!! I'm not as cheap (in my mind) as FE and i wouldn't of given even close to that for that car! There was probably a dozen more in the are for less or a whole lot better for the same price. But as far as TV shows go it wasn't a bad show.Finally got to see the '64 Gal show. They sure didn't look over the black one very well. Kinda of makes me guestion their 'expertise' .
Then when they got the beautiful white one they were complaining about the exhaust, which was an easy fix ??? The chrome looked amazing from what I saw :tup:
I didn't care for the paint on the roof, but it seemed to work.
Funny you mention that! I was watching the Desert Kings? show and they were doing a 51? Caddy, forgot the year exactly. I wanted to know how the guy did the seats, if he did them as original or modern as far as what is not seen in a seat. Each spring was covered in burlap with cotton stuffed in them. My dad's '48 coupe seat (rear bottom) 6 springs on each side where you sit is done this way. The whole seat on that caddy would have to be taken apart to do that. So how did they do it? The 6 springs on my dads are also real flimsy springs. FE and i thought it was probably to cut costs so the burlap/cotton was needed for support. He did give me a good work around idea and i may be able to just stuff chunks of foam in each one but sure be nice to see a little more detail on these shows. But it's time limited and nobody cares what they look like inside the seats or as much bout inside the car period compared to outside.Like most drama-based car shows - I'm not a big fan. I'd like to see more of the work and how they did it, and hunting for cars, than the BS narration and ridiculous bartering for TVs sake. A whole episode watching the upholstery gal do her magic (without the owner's useless yapping and the BS side stories) would be one I'd watch.
I agree, that car was way too nice to slam it down and those pipes were hidious .Yeah, they were idiots paying that kind of money for the black one, not even knowing if it would run. If it ran and drove....maybe, but I still think $7500 would still have been too much. I also don't like what they did to the white one..putting the latticework paint on the roof and the exhaust on the sides of the rear quarters. I know that's cool for a low-rider and different strokes for different folks (And he made good money, which was his goal), but I think it looked cool the way they bought it.
