Jesse James (a direct linear descendant of the famed outlaw), a noted builder of custom motorcycles in Southern California, assembles a crew and takes ordinary vehicles (like a VW New Beetle or a Lincoln stretch limosine) and converts them in five days into extrodinary machines that do things that the manufacturer never intended them to do (like convert the VW into a swamp boat or the limo into a fire truck.)Written by

For the episode where a Mini Cooper was converted into a snowmobile, a brand new 2003 Mini was supplied free of charge by BMW, and Polaris Industries supplied all the parts necessary at no cost. See more »
In the "American Monsters" episode, the narrator introduces the suburban mechanics by saying their Deloreans were high style in the 1970s. The Delorean didn't start production until 1981. See more »
I have no idea if this is Jesse's original car show or not. I think of him at tatted up probably wild car guy who was once Sandra Bullock's husband. In other words I'm not a fan boy. I've caught a few of these shows and because I like cars and rebuilds I will watch this show. It's not the best one for me as I like shows like the more recent CAR SOS where the cars are not "wild" looking when rebuilt, but true to the originals yet often with upgraded mechanics. These cars aren't particularly useful for driving around and Jesse isn't the most charismatic host. So far, I've seen other guys do more of the mods so I guess it's his garage and name that gives this show cache. A good enough show to watch. I do learn some things and see some interesting techniques and parts. I'm just not a big fan of making stuff that's expensive and not particularly useful or true to the car being rebuilt.
