Car Warriors

Recommended Posts

Anyone here seen the show Car Warriors on SPEED channel? I saw a preview of next weeks episode, the two teams will be rebuilding '73 240z's. From what I saw, I will be crying as this episode airs as two cars are ruined forever, but we'll see. Will air wednesday at 9pm eastern. :ogre:

I started to watch once but lost interest as it seemed too much of nothing trying to gimic something. However w/ a Z I might perk up.

I saw the preview today. I think I'm gonna be sick. Hopefully the two cars are total rust buckets, but I kinda doubt it.

Not happy to see them ruin two cars like that. From what I have seen of the show is just a bickering session. I like shows were they just build cars, that is it...not fighting, no life stories...just cars. There is an old British show on HD Theater called Wheeler Dealers, they find classic cars (in England), fix it up and resell it. It is an old show but they way it should be done. I would love to see an new American version of it.

There is a new show on the Discovery channel called Desert Car Kings with the same sort of premise, but it looks like the only plan to do American cars/trucks http://dsc.discovery.com/tv/desert-car-kings/. It is the work of Desert Valley Auto Parts in Phoenix http://www.dvap.com/. They sell the cars locally when they are done, so it seems they barely break even or lose money most of the time.

I've seen the Desert Car Kings show. From what I've seen, they do pretty sketchy work. On their Ford F100 build, they found some nasty looking engine sitting out in the yard and used it in the build. After they were done, they never showed their work under the hood. The under carriage was also still greasy and nasty looking. Definitely not Overhaulin type work.

I'm not saying the Desert Car Kings is concourse work, but then again neither is the work done on Wheeler Dealers (which is what I was comparing it to). Both seem to do about the same quality of quick "refreshes" to put a car back on the road as a driver, not as a show car.

I dont think any of those shows do what we would do to our cars because its a tv show and they're trying to make money from it. Im losing money with m z...but Im good with that. What I saw from car warriors preview....we will all be sick.

One of the many reasons that about all I ever watch on TV is sports. Most of the rest is total and utter cr@p.

I saw it on the TV guide and turned to the channel, And all I saw was two newer Monte Carlos! I thought it was odd that they were installing a V8 engine, the boxy fenders, and that the doors had a perfectly straight sill with a square rear quarter window, until I saw what they were actually working on.

Instead of watching car warriors (ever) there's a new TV show where these two guys keep old cars in the desert and (restore) them. It's called Desert car kings, and will be on the Discovery Channel on Wednesday nights.

I'm with you ARNE. At the moment my wife is watching a program about a young man that used to be a cross dresser and presumably gay who is trying to turn his life style around. I have no problem with anyones sexual orientation but that is CR@P TV for Sunday night. Gonna have to buy a nice TV for the house and put the one we have currently out in the garage. Hey isn't there a basketball game on right now? RATS!:mad:

Yeah, all we watch is the news and Netflix movies. This car warriors stuff sounds pretty awful. I presume they either mod the car beyond recognition or wreck it? Either way it would be sad to watch. But that seems to be the vogue, doesn't it? In way too many movies, there will be a fine classic car in somewhat of a co-star role, and inevitably they end up trashing it. It's always hard for me to watch. I try to imagine that they're kit cars.
