Season 2 is Out!!!
I subscribe to MotorTrendonDemand so I've seen a lot of insane things on that channel. I'm actually a bit surprised there haven't been any fatalities given the things I've seen them bring to life from the junkyard or their yard.

This episode was phenomenal. I had a Fairmont!!! (Actually it was a Granada but whatever) Everyone involved on the show was personable and not a douche. They'd stop and help you if you were on the side of the road. Well...maybe.

The show emphasizes performance at relatively cheap cost. Yes, Rick Flairlane isn't perfect, but...this is how you start. Sub-40's on a Nascar Track in a nearly 50-year old squarebody Ford? And nobody died????

This show and this channel is doing something right. They had a trailer/caption at the end of their 2019 episodes and I think they should bring it back. They stressed to get outside and try to build something, they said they failed so don't feel bad because you will, yes we all have junk in our garages but it could also be fire extinguisher disguised as a nitrous bottle...wait...

Watch this show. Watch this channel. It'll make you want to do things and do things with those around you. Promise.

Awesome First Episode
Mike Finnegan has always been awesome, but 12v Dave and Cotten are great additions. This show delivers. Funny and interesting. It actually shows them working on the car.

YESSS!!!
Love show's design and format, love watching someone work on and improve cars/trucks that regular people actually know and drive, and Finnegan's TV personality with Cotton & Newburn just make it great. FSM FTW

Hell Yeah Ya'll
Awesome 1st Episode. Glad Finn broke it out on his own... and superbly! And Randy as the first competitor was outstanding! Guess AMS was easier to get back and forth to instead of AD. Finn is obviously learning the traffic patterns here in ATL. LOL

FSM + Roadkill
nuff said. You want more? Finnegan's personality and a spin off of the Roadkill franchise is the reason most of us are here. Finnegan and his crew under good lighting, UHD filming and direction from an organized group make this show another reason I pay my dues to MTOD.

Definitely worth watching.
With Cotten & Dave helping Finnegan do the right things the wrong way all in the pursuit of going faster (or at least less slow) this show is entertaining, and dare I say educational. I'm looking forward to the next episodes.

Great fun! A more polished version of Finnegan’s Garage with better audio and camera work. Love it. Hope there are more episodes.
