Great show when it sticks to its purpose
9 August 2013 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The 7 is because, as others have noted, there's sometimes a little too much padding and too little restoration... I really want to see the items brought through the restoration process, not just a big "voila!" at the end of the show so we can see how it turned out.

That said, I like it. I like the actual folks involved (well, I'm kinda anti-Kelly, but she just doesn't seem to add a lot). I LOVE the Ron/Tyler dynamic and always enjoy the shows where they go out on a pick together; there's a lot of love between the two of them and they seem to have a great relationship. Tyler also has a solid relationship with his dad, of course; they jerk each others' chain every so often, and being a teen Tyler isn't so crazy about being disciplined, but they have their buddy-buddy moments as well (loved the fan Tyler restored for Father's Day, in his dad's favorite color!).

The rest of the crew... Kowboy, Kyle, Brettly, all good. Kowboy can be counted on for a good zinger; my favorite of his is when he said "That guy loses more parts than a leper on a pogo stick!" Might have been written for him, might not... but his delivery was spot-on.

This is one of the shows I point to when I hear someone say "all reality TV is garbage". No it's not. Maybe MOST of it is, but every now and then you find a gem, and this show is one of 'em.
