    I was flipping through the TV this morning a caught the last of the Two guys garage show. they had what looked like a barn find duece coupe built in the '60s. they cut the 4" drop axle and split bones off and put a fat man front end under it. Looked like they maybe were going to "streetrod" it with power windows ect.:mad:
     
  2. Yeah,Seems like they are taking a car that had a traditional vibe and turning it into a street rod,,I guess next weekend they will pull the flathead and replace it with a late model engine, HRP

    Just like the restoration guys would complain about making an old car into a hot rod...

    And the billit electric window switch that they put in the middle of the dash really got me!
    These guys should stick with their Camaros and muscle cars.

    I think the show has really gotten better since Willie B joined it.............NOT ! :D

    I never even liked him when he was on Pinks All Out.

    That is a shame. I make some old cars way faster with modern suspension, brakes and steering but an original 32 is too cool as it was and should not be changed.

    Before this thread gets chucked out, I just want to say that, over & above the street rodding of a very cool '32 & not even covering a great flathead while they were welding the shit out of the frame, I cannot stand the flapping around of their hands while they're talking. Totally obnoxious.

    What was up with that?? They really wrecked that show with the "improvements" they made. Too bad, I really liked it. They doubled or tripled the douchebag quotient with Willie B and rendered Pink's All Out unwatchable. Those brothers and the rest of the crew that used to be on the show really offset that Rich guy's nitwiticisim and pomposity.

    It was great when that nitwit flopped the crotch rocket and then made up some weak ass excuse about being used to a different style bike. Too bad it didn't hook up and 12 o'clock his ass.

    All those car shows on tv are ridiculous. That 2 guys thing is mostly a commercial. I still like Jesse tho.

    I think its the velocity channel that still has some real repair shows. I couldn't stand seeing guys build cool lookin rods and then send them to someone else to finish them. Seriously what's the point of watching the show if they don't show you how to finish it?

    What they should have done:

    1. Buy fiberglass body and rolling chassis

    2. Deliver the barn find to my front door, save them some work, and save us HAMBers some serious heart ache!!!

    We should send "willy b" a message in protest of them destroying a piece of hotrod history!

    I stopped watching right after the new guys took over. The quality of the show has gone rapdily downhill. A lot of commericals, although that may be the nature of the business. But, the format is so weak that it is painful to watch. And the hand gesturing...someone may lose an eye.
