    It was one of the few car shows I could stand to watch but looks like Velocity is going to dumb it down to what the rest of their shows basically are. A bunch of fake deals, made up problems, bad acting, sponsors shoved in your face and grown men going around playing grab ass for an hour. Oh and by the way, here's the car if anyone still cares.

    It's a shame because Edd's segments were one of the few left on television where you could actually see the car being worked on and learn from it. I just don't understand why Velocity, who's demographic is probably mainly middle age to older men, think we want to tune in to a car show to watch anything other than cars.

      Was a great show.

      I haven't had velocity for a few years after ditching cable but get my fix from motortrend on demand ($4.99) which has lots of Mopar content on Roadkill Garage, Engine Masters, and Hot Rod Garage.

        agree, all of them are getting completely stupid. street outlaws included. there are only two or three guys on there that I like. they cuss way to ,and like most movies, it doesn`t do a thing to help the show. The idiot from memphis w/ the big mouth wouldn`t have lasted very long where I grew up. I record it so I can fast through the stupidity "which is getting worse and worse. To the people of the world, we okies ain`t all like that !!

          I only watch this stuff occasionally when I'm at the neighbors etc. Most of it I find annoying and all glitz and glamour and no real material.

          "Someone" once said "Television, America's vast wasteland." More correct now than ever. 400 channels and there's nothing on.

            Well now this sucks. wheeler dealer was a show you could actually follow along and possibly learn something. Give Velocity a kick in the balls for the "make it cheaper" or even "add some fake dumbass drama" planning. The reality show mentality should teach them a lesson here.

            The chemistry between Mike and Edd and the balance of the presentation made the show very enjoyable for me.
