It was a great, innovative show! Monster Garage....can't believe it ended!!
16 January 2010 | by huntersrestkid1See all my reviews

O Monster Garage, where art thou? Monster Garage is a TV show that spanned from 2002 to 2005 (I may be wrong, but I know it started in 2002). The first episode involved a machine built out of an early 90s Ford Mustang GT (V6 I think) that could cut grass at 120 miles per hour. On a quarter mile, this thing would mow at just about 99 mph. Want to mow the yard fast so you can relax with your friends? This monster is for you. The monsters built in this show were incredible; a wide selection of plots going from a 1980s Pontiac Firebird transformed into a Santa float, to a Ford 20-passenger school bus turned into a luxury party pontoon boat! Crazy Monsters were to come, like an RV skate ramp and an RV Funhouse. The teamwork and concentration contributed into the monsters, and learning how to fabricate as you watched is what made the show, along with the humorous thing that Jesse and the Monster Garage crews throw in there as they build; and the fact that each monster is wacky and creative. People say Jesse was sick of the show and that's why it ended, even though repeatedly he says that It's his job and he loves to do it. I hope Monster Garage comes back to Television, and I can't believe it ended!
