    so I've been watching this show recently and Mark Worman really seems to know his stuff. My question is... Is he really like that or is it just shop banter?

    I don't know. I tried watching that show, I was excited because it's Mopar-centric.

    Awful, awful show. I made it maybe an episode and a half and never watched another.

    You hit the nail on the head..started to watch it because of the mopars, but it is just painful to watch (and I like reality/shows like this) I have not turned it back on!

    Clearly TV shows do good (there's one reason, and one reason only that Richard Rawlings is pitching Dodge, and it ain't because he's a Mopar guy...) for the folks on there.

    Thing is, I wouldn't ever take one of my vehicles to any of these shops on TV, the exception being Legendary Motorcar up in Canadia and that's only if I had REAL deep pockets and couldn't do it myself. Granted, most of it is fluff for TV I'm sure, but they just look like idiots and I'm not paying for that.

    Not trying to belittle Legendary. They got a show! But RM Restorations out of Chatham, Ontario has been around longer & has done some real quality cars over the years. Your paying for work & not hype! And not a t.v. commercial. For ever reality show, there must be at least a half dozen shops laughing their azz's off!!!

    Oh I didn't say Legendary would be my choice, but it would out of the group with TV shows.

    Personally, I turn my own wrenches and do my own restos. Why pay someone a boatload of money to do what I can do?

    Trick is to dvr it and fast forward to the parts where they're actual working on a car which is all of about 5 minutes of the show

    I agree, I am growing tired of "Ass Monkey Garage". Now you hve to deal with Misfit Motors. I am sick of all reality shows!

    That guy is a tool. If every time I turned around that guy was in my face trying to box me, I would eventually drop him where he stood.

    I've worked in some pretty hostile environments, and this one is mild in comparison.
    American Hot Rod and American Chopper were very similar at the onset. Now, both shops have even more money than when the TV series started - much more.
    Some people handle "success" better than others. I'd imagine it's difficult to keep your feet on the ground when the majority of people you meet only know you from the show.

    But I agree with most here - why pay someone to do it if you can do it yourself - and get more satisfaction from doing so?

    Typical Hollywood, producers of these show think they have to have all of the drama and BS for the show to be popular. They don't have a clue as to what would make a hit show to real car people.

    I love GYC. Mark and the crews antics are really bad. let the work stand for itself. I keep waiting for someone to ring his bell when he throws the idle threats at the guys. Sometimes makes the show really difficult to watch!!

    Tried it. And yep, it might have been LESS than 5 minutes! Haha

    If they just went to a good shop, and showed them doing the work and the end products, I would eat it up. Kind of like the old days, the shows on....what was it back then? Speed maybe? I remember watching Shadetree Mechanic back in the '90's after my dad got satellite and Speed. The early days of Trucks. Think there were one or two more; there was no drama, they just worked on stuff and sure they advertised for sponsors, but they were watchable.

    And then Speed became Spike I guess and all the shows went to crap. And of course the "reality" stuff caught on and it's all fake.
