Storyline

The McClure family is passionately restoring American glory, one classic car at a time. Their family business, Desert Valley Auto Parts, houses over 10,000 rust-free vehicles over 100 sun-baked Arizona acres. Not content with merely providing original parts for thousands of car collectors and restoration junkies each year, the McClures and their rag-tag crew are constantly on the hunt for cars to restore -- seeking them out in backyards, barns and even on their own massive lot. Their goal? To restore these classic American cars to their original glory and get them back on the road, while discovering the unique and historically significant qualities of each car -- and of course, to make a fair profit at auction.

Relax and don't take it seriously and maybe, just maybe, you might like it if your are into cars.
11 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

Take this show for what it is and you might be able to enjoy it as I did.

First off, as everybody points out. these are not restorations (no matter how many times this word is used)--they are just doing some quick and dirty work to get the cars back on the road. The cars do look good once they are done, but I am left wondering what they are going to look like 5 years down the road.

A lot of these cars really are interesting. This show is 99% fluff, and, as long as you are good with that, it can be fun to watch these short episodes.

Really, just do like me and put one on while you are eating supper and watch it out of the corner of your eye--they're perfect for that. If you are looking for more though, you'll be disappointed with this series.

So, in summary: OK taste, no calories, no nutrition--exactly the dietary supplement I was looking for here.
