Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

The Monster that Jesse Built!
8 December 2003 | by (7MM) – See all my reviews

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.

Enjoy!
