    Not bad. Some of the air brushing they do is amazing. I personally like how people act during the prank.

    It's an okay show. I don't normally like the chrome and bling they do but I respect it none the less. I like when they do muscle cars.

    Yeah i love when he does old muscle cars and classic cars. But some of his work is way too flashy.

    Of all 'those' types of shows....that one is ultimately THE BEST.

    I've seen a lot of shows where they rebuild this, restore that, or pimp it up and whatever.....and majority of the shows are what I consider 'half-assed hack jobs'.

    Chip Foose & his crews do a damn good job and they do it the way it should be done. NO hack jobs, no half-assed BS. They do it the way it should be done (or atleast, how I'd want it to be done).

    I watch it occasionally. Sometimes the cars turn out a little too pimped out for me, but some of them are cool. I met Chip Foose at the law firm I work at. Seemed like a good guy.

    Very good show, but Chip tends to ruin the cars with the rims. Other than that, the guy has talent.

    Makes it hard for me to explain to a customer why it's going to take atleast 6- 8 months to rebuild their car or truck after they watch the show and think my shop could do it in a similar time frame. Most "ignorant" customers don't realize it takes like 50 people working round the clock to pull it off in seven days, whereas my shop is just a handfull, and we like to clock out everyday and go home. Even though I ususally end up working until late to catch up on things.
    Great show. Chip Foose and the late Boyd Coddington are the reasons why I own a custom shop today.

    Those shows are bad ass...but seriously it is a show so we only see maybe 10% of what goes on. It might be 7 days, but I am sure there are a hell of a lot more people working on it than what is shown. Plus I am sure they do research and everything weeks before they go get the car.

    Chip Foose's designs and skill set are top notch!

    I like Chip and his crew, but I think the show's best days are behind it. They've done some nice cars though. JMO.

    I think that would be cool. He would just have to try to not make it too flashy like a lot of the cars he does.

    I agree with you on the rims. The styles usually aren't my taste and he always goes too big on most of them.
