Default Does anyone here watch "Overhaulin" on "Travel N Living"?

I think Overhaulin is a must see for any off you, wanting to modify your cars.

What these guys manage to do in a weeks time is mind blowing. It's great watching them work so efficiently with productive results.

Chip Foose is good.... really good! The way that take a piece of junk and convert it into a drool machine is to be seen!

The guys are pretty creative, and to pull it off in a week is no mean feat.

My favourite part, was when he just chops the roof off a '65 Thunderbird, it probably corners on it's door handles now.

I watch it regularly. On any given day, the 10:00 PM program on Travel and Living is good. I never miss that slot.

Sorry, oxymoron. Lets try and rephrase that.

Now the T'Bird would deal with the phenomenon that succeeds a straight, sideways on it's shaved door handles.

Well the best part I like about Chip is his art of drawing upside down, wow now that is one skill which is very rare.........

But in most of their episodes they have worked on Chevys, I wonder why????

I've seen this show...while the quality of work is very good, I find it a little hard to believe that they do it in 7 days flat.
