Junkyard Blues

Focuses on the person to much and not the cars. Father and son interaction are to scripted. I've spent many hours walking through junkyards looking a diamonds in the rough, and visualizing what could be with time and labor. However, that is not what this show is about.

Contrived theater
Andy might be a good businessman but he knows very little about cars and sounds foolish pretending he does. His top guy grinds a hole into the intake port and fixes it with epoxy. Andy claims the record setting 4 second Camaro will run in the 14s if they cleaned it adequately vs 20s if they didn’t. They “catch” a tire thief by forklifting his car in the air and won’t put it down until the “thief” pays a $100.

Why more money?
THIS IS BS. Why do I have to pay for this one episode? All of the other episodes are included with motor trends tv. And that's only because I had to pay for Motor Trends TV in order to get these episodes. Smh. So why? Why did I have to pay MORE MONEY just to watch this one episode in the whole season? Especially after I had to subscribe to the network and pay for it to watch the season in the 1st place? DOES NOT MAKE SENSE TO ME.

to much blabber, not enough car content
I really love watching these types of shows, but this one just couldn't keep my interest. Way to much talking, and the first few episodes just wasn't showing enough car content. Pull the cameras off the humans and show the dang cars and what they are doing to them them.
