So I was watching wrecks to riches the other day and I am seeing Barry White build this Pontiac Le Mans that he is trying to convert to a GTO. You would think from watching Boyd Coddington that no one would want to have a tv show so that the whole world can see what kind of A-Hole you are and what kind of crappy work you can do.

If I had a reputation for building high dollar cars and I had my own tv show these are some of the things I would NOT want people to hear or see:

1. Don't worry about that, no one will see it (Boyd's show on one of his $150k cars.

2. Having a bunch of students come in and build the car that I am trying to sell for $50k with the impression it was build by Barry White, HAH!!

3. Watching them paint the dash in that said car with spray bombs.

4. Painting the entire inside of the car with spray bombs (he wanted 50k for that car).

5. Acting like a total jerk to all you employees on National tv so that all the world thinks you are an A-Hole.

Anybody have anymore to add?

Why can't producers make a decent show with knowledgable people that get along and build decent cars? Foose can do it. I would like to see a technical show for people with more advanced thinking than Horsepower tv. It seems to work for home shows but car shows need controversey.

i personally have never seen those shows but

from what the guys at work ,including the boss,say about them it seems like they get off on all the arguing and personality conflicts.my boss ,he's a car show guy that built a cobra kit car, says thats what we need around our shop is more conflict and expression of ideas like those shows ,but i seem to think thats what he wants as long his ideas are the ones we use and that he is always right in the end. but anyway enough of my rambling ron

All I know is that if I paid $150k to buy a custom built car from Boyd then watched a show on it being built and hearing comments like "thats alright,no one will see that anyways" I would be pissed.
