    Besides the guys yapping, what is up with the charger? Looking at @ 2:38 in the video "Charger Photo Shoot VLOG" the rear end looks like it is set back too far...maybe it's just me?

    IMO He is an idiot, obnoxious in his mannerisms. I watch the show for the restorations. He seems to love what he is doing and is restoring cars....... even though they are mopars. Just my .02 but I never understood the appeal. Good friend of my step dads was a mopar freak. We still love him but never understood. 40 yrs of dodge or plymouth 440 this 383 that hemi whatever. He is now racing an LS3 go figure. [we still love ya Les!] carry on.

    If I worked for that guy he would have had my boot up his ass after the first day. I hate bosses who talk to people that way. Who in the hell do they think they are??? I had to deal with asses like that when I was a kid working and did not know any better. One of them almost killed me when he mixed bleach and ammonia and had me wash the floor in the basement. I have no idea how I did not pass out? When I was a kid I thought you had to just take that crap. If you join the military then you can expect that crap. From a civilian no way. He can go to hell. Even my wife got upsest with the way he was treating people. Why don't they make a show with some rational people restoring GM cars??

    Mopar guys are strange lot

    Their the worst ones to have a backyard/field/hillside covered with cool/rare cars rotting into the ground.

    And most of the time they were good running/driving cars before they got parked under a tree for 30 years

    Theres a fine line between love and hate...

    Because their idea of ''saving them'' looks an awfull lot like ''ridding the world of them''

    That is correct. They add the extra drama and BS into the show so people will tune in. If they just filmed it with everyone acting normal, no one would watch it

    You are right, Jason. I remember Harrison Ford saying that he never watches "reality" TV because nothing could be further from reality. After finding firsthand that one "reality" show was a total fraud, I no longer watch them either.

    Ok get your flame throwers out. . . I think he plays it up for the camera - yes, BUT he has a very subtle sarcastic way about him that most folks who don't know him think he is being serious. Most of the times when he "yells" and calls the other guys stupid, moron etc. he is kidding with them and they know it. That's why they are smiling most of the time when he has his tirade. I do this with my close friends (Jason can attest) I'll yell at them "Get back to work you loafer, I am paying you nothing, and you sit around. . .blah blah blah..." . We also have our own language for things, tell each other how "awesome" and "great" we are (a little self deprication). I think that is what is mostly going on here and he is just haming it up for the camera. They do beautiful work and seem to love what they do. I am mildly entertained and it is better than watching sit-coms with canned laughter. As for MOPAR guys- yeah they are just like Buick guys passionate about THEIR chosen brand.

    "So true", Uncle has back home, has and is first owner of a 1969 superbird all original. Now sitting behind his house, sitting on blocks,with a barely piece of car cover over it. original wheels and tires in shed. old lawnmower under the front of it and numerous, boxes of old junk under the rear. (House so small, that when on highway in front of house, if you look closely you can see the wing on the car in the back yard..) will not sell or allow anyone to touch, actually gets an atitude if anyone mentions it.. got possibly a 30 thousand car parked behind a 20 thousand house.. Sad..

    I like the comment about "saving" them is synonymous with "ridding the world" of them. Unfortunately, it is not restricted to Mopar people. My next door neighbor is letting a Chevy El Camino rot into the ground in his back yard because he could not get the exorbitant price that he wanted for it. It has been sitting - not even with a tarp over it, for about three years and it's condition has not improved during that period. It's still salvageable, but I wouldn't pay much for it now. I'd post a photo, but I'm 1,500 miles away from it right now.

    Maybe 1970,71,72,73,74,75 etc. Point of the story is that it's a car, pointy front, huge wing on the back, all original, worth allot of money and "how it's just rotting away".
