I hear its about 2-3 years at that shop..

Like someone else mentioned, it's nice to see Mopar's on primetime, I enjoy watching the show.


FantomWorks on Velocity does the day counter when they switch segments. Its really something to see some projects be there for a couple of hundred days. I enjoy FantomWorks. In some cases they provide the costs at the end of the show. I think I figured out the labor rate they charge is something like $75 per hour which seemed cheap to me.

I like that too. But also find it strange that they also charge when they make a mistake.
If they have to do it twice since it was done wrong they should eat it

I fail to see what relevance the real - world marketing decisions made by the fine Italian folks at Fiat has to with the topic of a television show about vintage cars who's purpose is to provide entertainment...

....seems like two totally different things to me.shruggy

And frankly these days I don't really care enough about what goes on at Daimler/Fiat/Benz anymore to complain much about it. Maybe that's why I didn't mind the episodes of GYC I watched so much, as they focused on the era of Mopars from the Chrysler Corporation of the '60s & '70s that actually interest me.

Say what you will, but I for one, like Mopar related shows and his seems to be the only one that I know of. He must have something good going for him and his business. Lots of cars to work on, a very nice, well equipped shop and good employees. I'd like to be in his shoes. His stuff sure beats the heck out of my business by a long shot. I have a partially disassembled, original Hemi Superbird that I've owned for decades and I doubt that I'll ever get around to putting it back on the road. I'd love to have access to his shop and his contacts for sure. Just my two cents worth!

Most of the people who bash modern Mopars are the same people who whined like a bunch of babies back in the eighties when all Chrysler had to offer was lame front wheel drive cars! I remember people crying for Chrysler to build them anything that was a V8 powered rear wheel drive. I had to buy a 350 powered IROC Camaro because Chrysler didn't offer a car that I wanted to buy. I doubt that there are many people more into classic Mopar muscle cars than me,I have owned about 500 of them over the last 40 years. But the fact is that the current Mopar offerings are far superior in almost every category to our beloved classic Mopars. There was a time when most hot rodders felt the same way about our factory built muscle cars. We are living in extraordenary times when just like back in the day Chrysler musclecars are the top dog on the block. This is something that I never thought I would ever see again. My opinion is that the classicand modern Mopars can co exist together just fine. I had planned on selling off my basket case project cars and buying a Hellcat Challenger, but this came up and changed all that.

After GYC polished and lipsticked the turd, it was flipped to a dealer by the owner, who unloaded it on an overseas buyer sight unseen...

It's in Germany now.. The owner knows the history and doesn't seem to have a problem with it. I'm more under the impression, that he likes the idea of owning a kind of celebrity car :-(

Well, I can only speak for myself but I was too busy making a career/life for myself during the 1980s to worry about cars as playthings, so I certainly wasn't whining. At the time living within my means while building a small business necessitated selling my precious '71 Demon. This was partially due to finances and partially because I needed the garage for warehouse space.

But we loyally bought a new Chrysler product every 4 years or so. Always Chrysler products, and frankly those ugly FWD turds at the time offered exactly the mix of economy and reliability we were after so no complaints there either. Same goes for the Dakota trucks & 1990s Dodge/Plymouth minivans/sedans we drove later. Nothing special about any of them...they were transportation appliances...which was all we were after at the time.

Years go by and I was able to get another Mopar A body as a playtoy, then build a better one later. And I take it to car shows and other automotive events where the very sight of a '69 Charger, '71 Duster/Demon or '72 Roadrunner gets my pulse racing - that era was the high water mark of of domestic automotive styling in my opinion. The new FCA cars just don't have any kind of emotional value for me. Besides being 100% a sub-brand of Fiat, which completely erases any loyalty I had, there is nothing about the styling of any of them I find the least bit attractive. We are currently using FCA products as our daily drivers & company vehicles, but the days of not even looking at other options are long over.

Different strokes, I guess, and as I said earlier...I no longer care about the new stuff enough one way or another for it to be an issue to me. If anything, the energy is better spent doing what we can to ensure access to fuel for our playtoys isn't taken from us...

....besides the more some people abandon their old cars for the new FCA product, the more accessible that old stuff becomes to people who might not previously had the opportunity to own one. whistling



....evil is winning....

Everyone had to build their lives and careers, I am no different than anyone else. Kuddos to you for doing so. But that has little to do with my statement. You can say what you want, but I lived it those days, and I can appreciate the fact that modern Mopar musclecars not only still exist, but are sick fast too. Companies change hands,and merge everyday. Businesses are world wide these days, anyone running a business these days would surely know this. I surely can and have appreciated,restored and have driven the classic Mopars for the last four plus decades, but other than styling they cannot complete in any category with the modern Mopars. I'm sure one ride in a current Demon would change your,or anyone else's mind about that. Like you who is entitled to your opinion this is mine.
