    Counts Customs

    Anyone see the newish show on History called counts customs? Guy is a bit much for me....but he seems to know his stuff about cars and is a real car guy. Im not a big fan of top gear....so finally a show for gearheads that doesn't suck.

    I watched two episodes last night. Not a bad show. He is spun off of Pawn Stars, he is their "car" guy that comes and looks at cars people bring in to sell.

    I'm a fan of Pawn Stars and I'm always interested when they get Count to restore something. I've seen some of the new show, I like it, he seems like a nice guy that loves all things with wheels.

    I watched it with low expectations and it wasn't half bad. I think some of the stuff is staged like when cruising around and a one of a kind hotrod drives by out of no where and he gives chase to go talk to the guy.

    I think it's a pretty awesome show so far. And if I'm not mistaken, the hot rod with the two blown motors on it is the same car I read about in a magazine a little while back that a guy used two 4.6 DOHC Cobra motors in. I wish they would've talked more about that car

    I live down the street from his shop. You would never even know it's there. No real signs or anything.

    Seen a lot of cool shit come out of there.

    Yeah. It's a couple blocks off the strip. You have to turn down a side street, and then you see a little tiny sign that says "counts customs" with an arrow.

    If you didn't know exactly where it was you wouldn't be able to find it.

    He seems like a cool guy. That guy on Fast & Loud comes off as a total douche.

    espeically shows like this. they've filmed storage wars at my storage unit place twice now. they were there last time i went. at least brandi and jarrod were. i asked one of the storage units employees about it and he said about 70% of the stuff in the lockers (at this place) was set up by the shows crew.

    you can just google pawn stars to see what people have to say about it. and when you think about it its pretty obvious.

    american pickers is pretty cool. the guys are likeble and the show seems more genuine.

    i like "chasing classic cars". that's a "reality show" as well although a bit different. the guy has enough interesting stuff going on that it doesnt need to be scripted lol.

    While the Count might know his "shit", Wayne Carini knows cars...the history, the numbers, the mechanics, etc. The guy is a walking encyclopedia on cars from the Model A to brand new Ferraris.
