Did You Know?


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 »


Strictly, a "factoid" is a piece of believable, but untrue information, not a "small fact" (although, given that the Monster Garage Factoid above is untrue, it would seem that on this occasion, at least, it was used correctly). See more »


[opening narration]
Narrator: Join Jesse and his crew of maverick mechanics as they rip, grind, and burn, turning ordinary street vehicles into monster machines in the Monster Garage.

Red Green gone right!
12 March 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Red Green gone right, I mean that in a good way. We've all seen Red come up different ideas that make a certain amount of sense, but only to blow up in his face. Like when Red takes an old Pontiac, and makes a fire engine out of it, only have the thing burn up. Here, they take a Lincoln Town Car stretch limo and make a fire engine out of it, and IT WORKS! NO KIDDING! (If you haven't seen it!)

Here, a group of guys take cars, and trucks and make them into something else, and it's fully functional. Look what the did with one of Kyle Petty's race cars, that was really cool. (I won't tell you. You gotta see it for yourself!)

You have to be impressed with the talent, and imagination these people have. As one reviewer put it, it is the best reality show on t.v., and I'm getting pretty sick of those!

But for anybody who likes cars, or just loves to tinker with things, this show should really grab you!
