    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.

    i am pretty sure his show is set up.. however most "reality" shows these days are.

    i was a fan of that show fast n loud that was on most of this summer on discovery.

    I saw the two episodes last night, too. Not bad. But I agree Fast & Loud is prob better.

    I wonder if the pawn stars get a cut from spin offs.
