    Don\'t look now ElCamino fans (Z3PR)

    Monster Garage is tearing apart a pristine '71 ElCamino SS with a 402 big block. Jessie paid a guy at the swap meet $8,500 for it. That guy is going to crap his pants when he sees what they do to it. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif

    They're making a "figure 8" car. (Races around a track that looks like an 8 so as to cause more accidents as vehicles cross paths)

    That might not be so bad. They have fig. 8 races at the track here in town and they can get pretty crazy sometimes /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif.

    That show is so gay now. I mean really when it comes down to it why not just buy a crappy one and make it a race car. Now theres one less nice El Camino in the world. Talk about stupid. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    they should use the 80s cars for this, not a basicallymuscle car era car..

    anyways out in cali and such they have to scrap them if they dont pass emissions, which is insane. thihnk of allt he clean metal thats been shreded to date,

    It's funny how people in the midwest seems to think that there is a Smog Gestapo in CA. We have some strict laws, but it's not all that bad. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    i cant believe no one mentioned.. NO FREEBIES! they actually went 500 dollars under! but sold some parts for 600 and got back in the positive.. its what you all (incliding myself) complained about. So what did you think of a show with no freebies? i liked it /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    I would like to see them transform an L88 Corvette into something cool, like a steam roller or pile driver.....

    Yeah that build ticked me off. /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif I noticed no freebies too. They had to sell some parts to get enough money to finish it. Maybe they are starting to actually play but the rules they set.

    It is bad enough that they are wrecking an El Camino......it would be apocolyptic to destroy an L88. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    hehe i love monster garage, some of the episodes are great....
    i know everyone has their own opinion of it, i dont care about the $$$ or the freebies, its a show about custom fabricating and really shows some creativity...i mean what else am i gonna watch, "queer eye for a straight guy"??
    i dont think so....

    i will agree it was painful to watch them tear apart such a nice car, but how many dodge chargers were busted up in the making of the dukes of hazzard? i remember hearing close to 400, but i still love that show too....
