These shows are real hot in US. mondays on the TLC channel. These shows are revving up the hotrod & muscle car culture here.

Ananth, Wolf, this is not India. They have power everything, prefab everything...the process is basically cut'n'paste on a higher level. What is really good is their designing skills and the finish levels.

What you say is true to some extent.....But John Beardmore (www.beardmorebros.co.uk) says that in a very similar show, they let the participants take the car for a week in addition to the time allotted; but that extra time didnt show up on TV.

I've also read elsewhere that Junkyard Wars also allows participants way more time than 10 hours....
