There are a bunch of television shows covering car building/hot rods/trucks/bikes etc. Some of these builds I like, some not so much. There is a wide variable on the skill and artistic levels between shops. I currently like the Kindig product and used to like the Foose stuff except for the wheels. Never cared for GMG or the Kount but this is all personal preference. Recently there is a British show I have been watching and I have to say I throw up into my mouth with most of their builds. I watch now in amazement to see if they can top themselves in ugly every week. Am I the only one, are my sensibilities of design that far off? Do people actually like some of these builds? Goblin Works Garage, here's a build of theirs.

I'll stop now. I think I've put my point across.

Many of the bike and car custom build shows have one thing in common: They are pressed for time and have a deadline to meet or the world is going to end.

I've about had it with that show. I think I've given it more than a fair trial watching all the episodes up to that one. All this get GWG name out there drama is a bit much for me. That was an ugly bug. I don't think the front end modifications came off as good as one would hope.

I'm likely to remove it from the DVR series record list.

I already fast forward through the bike segments.

Seems hit or miss. The off roader they did seemed okay to this non-off-road enthusiast. I suspect a serious off roading enthusiast was cringing.

I'd rather watch re-runs of Wheeler Dealers than a new GWG.

My $0.02

If she were more like Kari Byron from MythBuster's I'd be right there with you. But Helles just doesn't do it for me.

They must have some blind, 1%er customers. It's easy to see why they picked the name Goblin, because their designs are hideous.

I saw that Supra they did, that was enough for me. Plastic slap on panels with a wrap job, what kind of cheap crap is that. Terrible. Boyd Coddington in his day was quite a talent, a lot of guys got their start with him.
