    I don't like jumping into drama threads but I will say this: After watching A.S.S. build threads and seeing the fun they have with each other, I hope it captures that and avoids the scripted stuff.

    I wish them all the best of luck. It's a great opportunity for them.

    As lame as Monster Garage was with Armored Golf Ball Pickers, Hot Rod Zambonis, etcetera, you guys tuned in to every episode because Midgets, Machine Guns and Motorized anything is better than Amerian Idol, Dancing with the Stars, or Kardashian Konstipation.

    Who said they'd pay to see Jesse punch Paulie Junior's face in and where do I contribute?

    Its easy to come on and dog on Jesse to sound cool or whatever but the bottom line is ASS is full of guys who love Hot Rods more than anyone and it shows in their dedication and knowledge. I'm proud to know these guys and hope everybody enjoys watching what they can do.

    Once the tv crew see how long it really takes to build a few parts for it ,they will lose interest fast hang out all week and get 20 minutes worth of show . good luck to the crew at A.S.S.

    If the show is done correctly, and a few kids find out you can make a buck building stuff by hand, and save Mom & Dad the $200,000 they will piss away on college then it is a show worth watching IMO. Bob

    Didn't Jesse post a "How-to" video here some time back? I tried to search for it with no joy, but I seem to recall some sort of direct, man and workbench making a part kinda presentation. If the new show is like that, I'm all in. But if it's just more prefab shouting contests, contrived plots and stupid short deadlines with missing parts and such, I'll only watch the first episode. Hoping for fun and to learn stuff. Gary

    And since many of us know or have least met some of the crew over the years I wish them luck and great fortune!

    Did he?

    I must have missed that...

    The closest I've seen to a Tech Thread or a How To was a link to his own site, where he said there was one.

    I wish them ALL the best. Jesse is a metal master and the Austin Speed Shop has turned out some really good stuff.

    Bring on some GOOD shows with real Hot Rods....
  21. As has been said, drama sells the shows. Really sad given the talent all of these guys have. Having said that, shows that are about talent generally end up as instructional dvd's...

    Exactly what I was thinking..
  28. I'll probably watch it, good or bad. I'm a sucker for this kind of TV. Better than Jersey Shore.

    I guess although we have been putting Jesse's name to the forefront, there are a lot of very talented people at A.S.S. and it will be nice to see some of what they do. Jesse's forte' is bike building so maybe the show will feature the car builders at that place.

    When Jesse decided to become a celebrity he put himself out there for everyone to scrutinize......that comes with the turf. Some people like him, some don't, but he is a very talented fabricator and welder. That can not be taken away from the man. Doesn't mean I have to like him, just respect his good points. He also seems to have a soft spot for animals and kids, so that means something in my book.......not that he would give a damn about what I think. :D

    There is a chance this show might actually turn out ok. As was mentioned , there are a few good ones on TV, like Hot Rod TV and a handful more, but there are also a bunch of turds, like My Ride Rules (WTF?) Car Warriors (Although it is SLIGHTLY better this year since the "All Stars" and George and Mad Mike left.) I will be watching and hope we see some stuff we can all enjoy and learn from.
