8 June 2019 | by jglabereSee all my reviews

I have watched episodes of this show and have found it less than apoealing. If someone has a classic car or truck and it is "kidnapped" by some supposedly caring members and restored of modified by Foose and his team, I would definitely be passed off. First if there was sentimental value, it is all destroyed by restoring or modifying it. When I see the completed butchering job my first reply would be to Foose would be to put it back together the way it was given to him, so go find the parts you removed. I would ask who gave you permission to do the work when he is not the registered owner of the vehicle. I'd have him arrested for theft and destruction of private property. The car is dead to me now. I have no use for it and I will make sure no-one else does. If he can't return it to the condition before he stole it. I'd take it somewhere and out several rounds of 357 Mag ammo into it. I'd contact my lawyers and have his business and all his employees charged and fired. My family? Well let's just say that we wouldn't be on speaking terms. My trust has been betrayed, my privacy invaded as I am a very private person and just don't like surprises. Does this sound a little over the edge. I'm sure there would be others who would feel similar but not as extreme. I do not like my property to be messed with it people interfering in my affairs. If I wanted it fixed or modified I would have it done myself. If I couldn't afford it then that's ok also. I'd you it over a period of time so that it would be my ideas and not someone else.
