I'm kinda late to the party but actually find more enjoyment watching some Youtube stuff than "TV"... Mike Finnegan has his own Youtube channel that is about as DIY as "tv production" gets. He essentially has a couple cameras on tripods and records typically him and another guy working on some project. That type of stuff might be more up your alley... I'm sure there is way more, i'm just not there yet.

They're getting back to me on when the permit application was filed and when the shoot occurred.

Doesn't look like this was a Chad McQueen fronted deal unless he first approached them about the stunt. McQueen didn't get the permits. Craig Pilgrim would have let Rawlings know this was going to happen from the get go. It might have even been Rawlings idea in the first place. The stunt was pretty cool though I thought watching the build was mediocre. I find the build threads here more interesting.

Way to make this subtly political...

Roadkill and Roadkill Garage are the only REAL reality car shows. I have to credit them with motivating me and getting me out into my garage to finish my project.

I'd include Engine Masters but that's less Reality TV and more Educational Television, like PBS.

I don't like Fast & Loud because the main character is an obnoxious narcissist who can't STFU. Which seems to be going around these days.

The Strope or Kindig or Joe Martin shows are real. While they don't walk through it step by step you can glean some tips. The Power Nation shows are indeed like an educational channel. Shows like Worman or Sparks have quite a bit of over the top shenanigans but you can still get some good tips. In Worman's case he's like a classic Mopar training video these days. A far cry from the first few seasons. There is still the dancing, corny jokes and his movie obsession but if you're a vintage Mopar lover there is a ton of good info in the show.

The timeline is a bit closer to what they were saying on the show. The permits were pulled in early February and the shoot was April 15-20. Based on what I read regarding getting a permit it looks like at least a couple weeks probably closer to a month. There is info that is submitted, fire, police, medical, parking, notifications to those in the area impacted and the like. That puts them at about mid March for the permit and mid April for the shoot. But why didn't they start when they pulled the permits? It's not like it's rocket science getting them. Almost a slam dunk as long as pros are working on it. Maybe they did start the car that soon but like the rest of the Gas Monkey builds they push the "it's late" drama. I'm not so sure thrashing to just meet the deadline is something I'd want to market. It's great they make the deadlines but I wouldn't want anything I had built going to the wire like that.

I don't have cable and didn't even realize this show was still being made. But I just watched it last night. Entertaining show, but very disappointing that they did not get as much air as the original.

Not sure I've seen The Strope, but I agree, Kindig and Joe Martin are, at least for me, not only entertaining but educational to an extent as well. Also, I hate the fake drama of most of the shows...

Steve Strope from Pure Vision in So Cal. Had to look up the name of the show I forgot it. The show is called Hand Built Hot Rods. I'd heard his name here and there but didn't realize how big a player he is. Small shop, a few guys and cars at a time. Could take three years to get the car. Mostly hot rods and restomods but the restomods I've seen out of his shop are classic looking, including the interiors but with all the rest modern stuff. You could look at it and think it was a car from 1969 but once you looked at the dash and drove it it would be apparent what it was. He contracts the paint and upholstery out and at least on the TV show used the same guys for each build. The designs and ideas are his and most all the mechanical comes from his place in Simi Valley.

Strope has quite a number of impressive builds, more mechanical design and fabrication than artistic. Here’s a Mustang that I’ve seen in person, you really have to spend time with the car to see everything that’s done.

Also check out the 57 Ranch Wagon that won the Ford Design Award at SEMA last year. Also, check out the ‘70 Roadrunner, “Hammer”.

And the show is shot in my area (Hill country of Central Texas and Austin). The roads are familiar.

They can't do a Bullit Charger now, someone would notice the 2 extra doors.
Can't wait for the 4 door Mustang.
