One of the best shows in Discovery
9 March 2009 | by ricardosantos_1315See all my reviews

I watch this series every time I can, and I always feel completely amazed with it! The designer Chip Foose is a genius, probably one of the best in the world! But of course, he isn't the only one who deserves the fame, the entire team is very, very talented. The presenters are friendly and explain everything the team is doing to the car. It's difficult to find something negative to say about this show. The endings are always fun, watching the people's reactions to their new cars, which are authentic works of art. Car lovers, and even people who aren't very much into cars can easily become addicted to this series.
