I watch alot of them.

My favorite tinkering shows are in no order- Counting Cars, Fast N Loud, Misfit Garage, Fantomworks, Roadkill Garage, Goblin Works Garage, Vegas Rat Rods.

My favorite entertainment shows are in no order- Chasing Classic Cars, The Grand Tour, Top Gear (Clarkson Era).

Just saw the newest Roadkill Garage last night- i want this car so bad.

Not since youtube. There's SO MUCH good content on youtube that takes the place of traditional car shows.

As far as I can tell all the restoration and cutom car shows are more about the presenters, and the cars always magically appear running perfectly and immaculately finished (after having eye watering sums of money thrown at them) after the last ad break. Yawn.

Haven't watched in a while. Enjoyed Top Gear but have not tried any of the new versions.

Roadkill was fun. I'd watch that when I was trying to exercise. Haven't watched in a while though.

I'm a longtime fan of the Powerblock shows. Old Top Gear was great.

I have watched every single Roadkill episode, some 3 or 4 times.
I also love the Grand Tour, i pay Amazon Primer just to see T.G.T, nothing can replace the chemistry between Clarkson Hammond and May.

B-i-t-c-h-i-n Rides is good too. That Dave Kindig knows how to make a monster of a car!

Would be interesting to have him go against Chip Foose in a design contest....

He knows how to draw one..i do give him that...but thats all ive ever seen him do except drink coffee.

West Coast Customs is similar but he has someone else draw the design.

First ones were watchable, but then personalities and intrigues showed up and became the show.

I must Confess to being a faithful fast n'loud watcher, but just not the same without the bearded wonder...looking forward to aaron's new show on monday.
I like the Misfits, but the show just never clicked for me. my brother likes them better than the monkeys.
my second fav has to be Graveyard Carz. yes. Mark can be an annoying Know it all/pain in the rear...
but that's the show. Keyboard Warriors complain about him all the time, but without mark there IS no show.
It'd be like people saying Seinfeld would be better without Jerry...

Love Fantom Works.

Me too. It was great to see that track car with lots of big money backing get whooped by Big Chief.

I like Gas Monkey garage better with Aaron. I think the show is missing some of that phazazz that Aaron brought to it. Aaron's creative nature really made that show better.

I like Street Outlaws quite a bit. I like the competitive nature of the guys on there.
