Of the ones I heard of, I couldn't disagree more with most of the writer's choices. But, that's just me. ;)
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn

Only thing I agreed with was bringing back OVERHAULING , but get rid of the stupid 8 days overhaul, the concept of swiping the car and all the other producer/director stupidity created conflict.

The count is done like dinner, stick the fork in him.
graveyard cars is so annoying I'd like to punch the tv to get to him.  Now that the price of big screen TV's is stupidly low, maybe do an Elvis.

One of the better show on tv is chasing classic cars with wayne carini, love it when his projected selling price is CRUSHED. Hey wayne that's what price reserves is for !!

Another good show is the Martin Bros , IRON RESURECTION, but even that is getting tiring with throwing fire crackers at the sweeper or dummy snakes. Turn the stupid LOUD background music off and show us how you build cars properly.

Dave Kindig.........other than overpowering loud background music when he or one of the crew is being talked to or at us the viewer, needs correction.  May as well have TV on mute and just watch.  As far as skills in fab and bodywork , paint, and upholstery, we actually learn something .  Hands down this is the absolute best show.  His crew is fabulous and entertaining .   Just keep the money guys who :  direct, edit and produce the show locked in a room away from ruining the show  !!

Gas Monkey garage.........Richard Rawlins, boy a lot of people I know into street rods SERIOUSLY HATE THAT GUY,  I can take him with a grain of salt.

I don't regularly watch any TV car shows. Mostly too much silly contrived drama, I have enough of that without TV. A lot of the rest is too rusty, too shiny, too new, too expensive, or too over the top. I had never heard of several of those. I used to watch My Classic car sometimes and Jay Leno's Garage. Monster Garage was fun at first. I don't even like car shows much anymore.  :(  Just drive what I have into the ground and let someone else find it and resurrect it.  ;D

The only one on the list I liked was Overhaulin'.  Don't watch too many but some are Leno's Garage, My Classic Car, Bitchin Rides and Chasing Classic Cars.
Working for a living gets in the way of finishing my car
