    The Iron Resurrection team tears into a 62 Chevy Truck. Joe Martin wants to create a custom Lowrider so radical it scrapes the ground; new air-ride suspension, tray, front end and killer paint job. With the clock ticking and money burning, the race is on!

    Joe has big plans for one of his favorite cars, a '64 Lincoln Continental. He wants it long and low and the color of snow. But a faulty steering column and a close call in the shop threatens to turn this quick flip into a never-ending money pit.

    Joe and his gang serve up some West Coast cool, resurrecting a 1953 Ford Ranch wagon and turning it into a bad-ass beach cruiser. A heart stopping shop accident and a race to repaint a client's custom built bike could turn this dream into a nightmare.

Great show, fun to watch, amazing talent, and jaw dropping transformations into modern works of art
Verified purchase
I love this show. Joe Martin seems like a genuine, humble, all around great guy and watching Joe and his guys save good old American Detroit steel into modern works of art is addictive. It's so refreshing to see an enormously talented guy and the integrity he puts into his work while remaining so humble and honest. Unlike the other popular reality TV car show that takes place in Texas, the one with that obnoxious, loud mouth, nauseating used car salesman on Discovery Channel, it's obvious Joe and his crew build every car as if it were their own and they never fail to impress.

And who doesn't love his gorgeous wife Amanda. She's hilarious, her laugh is contagious, and her enthusiasm about cars really livens things up. Shag seems like a nice guy but sometimes I wonder why he's on the show. Amanda determines the "bottom line" anyway when buying parts or the next project, and IMHO, she can handle herself. Besides, most car guys love beautiful women almost as much as their own cars (lol) and she always has the sellers eating out of her hand with her charm and charisma. Who knows, without Shag around, they might just give her the parts. (And I love watching her crush cars) LOL

Seriously, great show, and if I'm ever fortunate enough to build my dream car, it'll either be Joe Martin or Dave Kindig (Bitchin Rides).

The only negative comment is the editing. Too much time spent on the practical jokes. While a little fun and humor certainly adds to the show, I'd rather see more builds or flips each season than Pompa running away from rattlesnakes. Watching Joe air brushing on "fake chrome" trim, Shorty's remarkable painting skills, Cato's upholstery, the amazing metal work and fabrication, are far more entertaining to me. And Mike's compulsive complaining gets old so a little advice to the editors...more cars, more builds, more flips! And more episodes....PLEASE!

Finally...a TV series about customizing that gets it just right!
Verified purchase
I am a serious car guy. As such, many of the so-called "reality" car ahows on TV don't cut it for me. This one is different. Iron Resurrection shows REAL car guys (not some slick-haired, car guy wannabe) doing what they're best at, loving it, and having a great time in the process. Most of us are REALLY tired of produced crap that ads all the "drama" nd leaves out the really fun things about building extraordinary cars, trucks, and bikes. Kudos to a total success on this one! Season Two is already on my #1 to buy as soon as it gets here in 2017! Great job to all!

Great Car Restoration Show -- Probably the Best
Verified purchase
I like this series. Yes, it is contrived, but I like the ensemble.

One of the best car build shows.
Verified purchase
If you like Counting Cars, Vegas Rat Rods, or Fast and Loud, you will like Iron Resurrection. This show has more footage on the actual build process than shop dynamics. Interesting show, I hope there is a season 2.

Just enough of everything.
Just enough comedy, comradery and how to without getting boring. One of the best things IMO is limited drama and not inside shop drama. Joe seems like a great guy, unlike other chopper shows. If I had a complaint it would be Mike and his "son" every two seconds, and he threatened Cato for touching his shoulder (5 seconds to get off me) and he is always messing with others including Cato. Kind of a dish it out but can't take it type.
