I'm pretty much of the opinion that there is not much "real" about reality TV.

I guess that is the reason I prefer Legendary Motorcar Company and Chasing Classic Cars. No drama...just good quality cars.

i enjoy the show, but i have to question some of the prices. $3000 for styled steel wheels and tires? last season they had a set of wire wheels that were shown to cost $20000.

66 mustang coupe, 302 / T5-Z / 3.80 trac-lok

Most likely they said it was totaled so they don't have the reputation of bringing restored cars that have been wrecked to auction.

I'd much rather watch Fast N Loud than that damn Graveyard Carz. Worman is a jackass and I'm amazed anyone can work with that know-it-all

That 4X4 is a '67 Vert with shelby parts - a movie car from "The Thomas Crown Affair"

I dont think its the same car, the car in the screen shots has a 67 deluxe interior/seats/ door panels, and sun visors. the one richard is sitting in has no deluxe seatbacks, 68 door panels and what appears to be a 68 rear seat, as well as no sunvisors and a non stock steering wheel. the rear roll bar tubes are also a different shape.

I saw the differences as well, the tubes are likely covered with foam in the movie shots, Hella lights in movie pics but not on Rawlings', also no sideview mirrors on Rawlings' car. Movie production usually has multiple vehicles for different filming reasons - action, closeups,etc - suspect that this is the case.

Say you do not like it or it is not your type of car and leave it at that.
Look at Aaron. How can anyone be surprised he doesn't like mustangs? He's clearly a traditional prewar hotrod guy. That's his thing. How many people on here like 30s rods? That guy has tons of talent. He just applies it to cars mustang guys tend to not favor. Who cares? I'd still watch fast n loud over most other car shows.

I loved how that 67 turned out and sucks its got in a wreck. I actually like this show quite a bit and it doesn't bother me that Aaron doesn't like Mustangs...some people like certain cars and they don't like others. No big deal for me. I'm not a Mustang specific guy (or even a Ford guy exclusively)

The first time I watched it I thought Richard was really annoying, but honestly his humor has kind of grown on me. Its a decent show that's on my DVR season pass list.

I really used to like Chasing Classic Cars, but it seems like Wayne spends most of his time now just buying and selling cars at auctions.

Most people would consider a dual reservoir master cylinder to be an improvement over a single circuit design.

But back to the main topic, has anyone seen the black on black 67 showing up for auction anywhere? I'm interested in the rest of its story.
