What's New

We had the great opportunity to film Overhaulin' a television show on TLC (The Learning Channel). The program airs Tuesday nights right before Rides. (The time is 9:00 pst.). Ours is the second episode of the second season. The following photo's are of some of the build process and final product.
The car is a 1967 Chevy Nova owned by Katie. Her mother wrote in to the show and nominated Katie. Her car is her pride and joy so it was really great to be apart of the surprise. Her brother Scott helped keep the trick going and was also a big part of the build process. He was right there with the build crew doing whatever was needed to complete this car in 7 days.
We received the car at approx 5:00 pm Thursday night and it had to be finished by the following Thursday. There was definitely some lost sleep during the build process, especially the last 3 days. I know Gary only received about 6 hours sleep in the final 48 hours of the build! Everyone in the build team worked hard to give Katie a really beautiful car. Her reaction was definitely worth the blood, sweat, and tears.

Our shop typicallly has 6 or more cars going but we had to clear out all of them to make room.
