Jesse James (a direct linear descendant of the famed outlaw), a noted builder of custom motorcycles in Southern California, assembles a crew and takes ordinary vehicles (like a VW New Beetle or a Lincoln stretch limosine) and converts them in five days into extrodinary machines that do things that the manufacturer never intended them to do (like convert the VW into a swamp boat or the limo into a fire truck.)

The show didn't actually own a Volkswagen Beetle when they were ready to plan the vehicle's conversion to a Swamp Buggy. So, they rented one and used it to plan the conversion, then managed to buy a Beetle by the time the conversion was performed. See more »

I stumbled across this show about a week or so ago. I am really interested in watching shows where people use their minds and hands to create really cool things. I like all sorts of shows like this because I am a creative person and watching other people create, motivates me. I was someone who used to watch "American Choppers" because it was so cool to see Paulie make these "masterpiece" fabricated bikes. Then I saw "Monster Garage" on a day where they were running a marathon. This show rocks and Jesse James brings an explosive edge to it. He just has a cool presence. You watch to see what he will do or say, like you watched Paul Sr. on "American Choppers".
I personally like "Monster Garage" better than "American Choppers" because it brings creativity to a higher level. You can also see different workers each time. This is a very cool show with allot of creative minds coming together and making one vehicle into another creation.
If you have a chance, check out this show that is broadcasted on the Discovery Channel.
