    I've watched that show. I absolutely hated the episode where they ruined the Landcruiser ( and bear in mind I am American car lover only ) . They put 17 inch rims and Mud Terrains on it , and a winch, but lost the racing buckets and harnesses, lost the axe and shovel, and lost the storage bins. They created a car out of a wheeler. That show is cool, if they leave wheeling stuff alone /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    "The car is in great condition, but I am simply too busy of a person to use this car to the extent of it's abilities."

    Which really should read, "I got lucky by having a show put lots of money into my ride but now I need money so thier effort is my gain." /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    I enjoy the show. I think Xibit (however you spell that name /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif) is pretty funny.

    I'd be pissed if I was him or West Coast Customs. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    I remember seeing that episode. It had a sliding rear shelf with some DJ equipment, but I don't see pics of that.

    It was also a huge pile of dung when they started, I can't see how he can say it was well-maintained!

    Ah well, too bad for him. If it were me, I'd hold onto it until it was worth a lot more.

    The car is still a peice under all that paint and ghetto ass bling. What good is it to hook up cars and leave all the mechanical stuff alone? I figured MTV would make them sign something promising not to sell the car for some period of time?

    The only reason he went on the show was to make a profit.

    And that land cruiser was pretty clean untill the west coast customs screwed it up'd.

    thats just taking advantage of a bunch of hard working good people. Thats just [darn] ridiculous. Thats a slap in the face to all those decent people who help put it all together.

    Exactly. Sure the show is 1/2 hour ( 22min prog 8 min ads ), but it obviously takes several days , even if they were to rush. They are only doing a job ( one they LOVE to do ) , while the Bossman get exposure for his business. Most of the guys who are shown doing the work, don't make most of the money, and probably have to pay at least cost for the "hook ups" they get from working there. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    yeah I noticed this as well, they don't even bother like reringing motors that are almost dead. They maybe pull it and make it run even though its crappy. Or the one car they put a new motor in it cause it was simply dead, but they just put either a stocker or a junkyard motor in wtf? Might as well buy some performance one or parts. Even ricers won't respect you if you don't have a cold air intake /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    i work at a little shop and have been doing mobile video and audio along with security systems for some time now and I would feel pretty jipped if i had worked on this car and the poser was selling it. Now granted, the people who worked on the project got paid, but it would still be personal slap in the face to me.

    Oh, and on to the Land Cruiser...I would have given 2k for the before Cruiser...but was dissapointed to say the least with the finished product.

    I think everyone has covered every point of view I have had about that show. Now if you watch OverHaulin on TLC, I don't think you will ever catch one of those people selling there on EBay. I beg my wife everytime Overhaulin comes on to figure out a way for them to fix my Blazer.
