    I can’t believe that Discovery Channel would broadcast such a poorly produced show. The premier was lame at best, there was no story of substance, the movements of the cameras made you feel dizzy, Desert Car Kings is a Desert Car Pig.

    Throw it away – it is a waste of your time.

    I watched this last night… and I liked it. I recorded it for my hubby… he loves these old rigs. Our 27 year old son watched it with me. He is a junkyard guy like the hubby. DO NOT THROW IT AWAY…. it is a keeper!

    I watched the recent show of the 1965 T’Bird being restored.
    Correct me if I am wrong, but the 1965 Cadillac that was purchased from another yard was misidentified.

    I believe the car in the show, was actually a 1966 Cadillac.

    Nice show, I’m proud of those Arizona guys.

    I think the show is great,caught the first episode last night. Being a car nut since I was 4 years old a trip to the salvage yard always catches my attention. Keep the episodes coming.As for the nay sayers who don’t like it just change the channel.

    I’d like to see more of the engine rebuilding when they’re restoring
    old cars.

  11. Susie on February 27, 2011 at 2:01 am

    I LOVE this show. My husband is always making me watch car shows and honestly this is the first one that keeps my attention. The cars are just flawless when their done, their yard is amazing and looks like a museum for classic cars, also watching the young McClure ,Jason, is a extra treat for me. He is so damn good looking and is really funny!! Discovery needs to keep this show going.

  12. Bill McDonnell on February 28, 2011 at 4:29 am

    My entire family watches the show. We really like it. I hope to find a 68-72 Pontiac GTO or Olds 442 of the same year.
    This show is a hit for all ages.
    Have a contest to win a trip for father & son or for 2 to come out and pick out a car! Just a idea!
    Keep the show going :)

  16. Judy Nauta on March 25, 2011 at 10:55 am

    I really enjoy your show but the real appeal is locating hard to find auto parts.I was looking for parts for a 1966 chevy C10 pickup. How and where do I inquire about parts?

  17. tonya on March 30, 2011 at 7:57 am

    I watched your show we really enjoyed it. I was wondering if you could help us find some parts for a 1964 ford gallaxy 500 sedan , it has a 289 we are looking for a tarnsmisson it has the cruise-a-matic 5 bolt bellhouseing. We are also looking for bumbers. If you or anyone could help us e-mail me .Thank You keep up the show we love it….

  18. Nick on March 30, 2011 at 8:29 am

    Just watched the 64 Cuda restoration. Nice job on a neat looking car! Just wanted to know how the original car started off as a Slant 6 engine and the finished car ended up with a 273 V8 without ever mention of the engine swap:)

  19. Jim on March 30, 2011 at 10:01 am

    Happy with show. Not everyone can drop the huge bucks in classic cars and this is a good education of what you get into when you decide to invest in classic cars on a budget. Buying these cars from $5000- $25000 is a good alternative to buying the off frame restoration with all matching numbers, which would double and triple the value. Brings back the memories of a 1965 Buick Special Convertible I had and wish I still had. Keep the show going and expand the cars they fix up and put these classics back on the road for everyone to see.

  20. Jeff on March 30, 2011 at 10:27 am

    The show rocks my the world but u forgot about the 1964 Chevelle El Camino when u where restoring the 66 chevelle SS conv. The El Camino also had SS and were bad 2 the bone. These are hard to find parts with no after market reproduction parts available except for the front end and other minor components. If u have any 64 el cam. contact me. Keep the show Rollin.

  21. Tom Cetkowski Sr on March 30, 2011 at 11:31 am

    I don’t love the show, but like it. I think I have seen all the episodes. I have restored a few cars & trucks in my 50 years of auto & trucks mechanic. These guys pick some nice cars to work on. For what I see on the show is 4 men working on these cars in 2 and 3 week dieline before an auction. The way they prepair the cars, the paint and plastic or bondo will be poping off of the cars in 4 to 5 yaer if not soonner. The cars should be soda blasted of all the rust. You can sand down to shinning medal all you want but you do not get all of the rust out. “One coat of paint will hide a multitude of sins”. I hear people say the cars are flawless this is not true, they don’t know what they are talking about. I will keep watching the show to see if they get any better at there restorations. I would like to see the OVERHAULIN show back on the air.

  22. art on March 31, 2011 at 7:32 pm

    I like any show that shows cars being restored. I’ve only sen it a few times but will keep on watching it. I wish they would go a little more into detail

  23. Jeffery McKee on April 13, 2011 at 8:49 pm

  25. Dennis Lin on April 28, 2011 at 3:01 pm

    You guys are great! This show rocks!!!
    I am one of your average classic car nut who can only dream of an awesome rebuild like in Overhaulin. Of course those are next to impossible to attain. Your show gives us inspiration that the old clunkers can be rebuild and put back on the road with realistic budgets. I call your show “Poorman’s Overhaulin”. Keep up the great work. You got a diehard fan right here. Please do more classis pick up truck restorations. I hope to go to one of your auctions and bid on your cars someday. :)

    Do you restore for other people or do you do it only for yourself?

    You can take a wet and wild ride on the shores of San Martin Lake; make time for a loving honeymoon.
    How to Have the Best Family Escape There is so much culture to experience
    a once-in-a-lifetime adventure as the link from downtown to the
    mid-fifties. It was basically one big parking lot.

    There are over the counter treatments or expensive drugs that
    people get prescriptions for through the improvement of technology,
    very wide range of types of human papilloma virus
