A Car Show For The Racing & Wild Mod Set
26 May 2018 | by AudioFileZSee all my reviews

I have no idea if this is Jesse's original car show or not. I think of him at tatted up probably wild car guy who was once Sandra Bullock's husband. In other words I'm not a fan boy. I've caught a few of these shows and because I like cars and rebuilds I will watch this show. It's not the best one for me as I like shows like the more recent CAR SOS where the cars are not "wild" looking when rebuilt, but true to the originals yet often with upgraded mechanics. These cars aren't particularly useful for driving around and Jesse isn't the most charismatic host. So far, I've seen other guys do more of the mods so I guess it's his garage and name that gives this show cache. A good enough show to watch. I do learn some things and see some interesting techniques and parts. I'm just not a big fan of making stuff that's expensive and not particularly useful or true to the car being rebuilt.
