    Rust to Riches (Gotham Garage)

    I am probably the only person on here that did not know about this series as I don't watch a lot of TV but was skimming through netflix and stumbled upon the rust to riches all about gotham garage and thought I would give it a look expecting it to be like all the others shouting and screaming impossible dead lines etc.
    But was pleasantly surprised no shouting no tears no silly deadlines just a custom shop building cool stuff, some of there stuff won't suit everybody's taste but they do show a lot more of the build process than many other shows.
    The boss Mark seems a talented guy who comes across well he treats his staff respectfully and in return they respect him, he has a good team and for once they all seem to get along, and I have to say Constance is very easy on the eye,
    If you've not seen it check it out its worth a look, its probably now my favourite car program as I never binge watch anything but found myself watching these back to back .

    Constance Nunes is a model, why is she working in a garage? I reckon she was put in there just for the male viewers.
    It's only funny till someone gets hurt..........then it's friggin' hilarious

    it is nice to see a no drama car show.
    funny thing is they are located right here in my home town of Temecula.
    but what i really want is a show that is a lot more involved in how the build is done rather than the fluff of "back stories".
    like a lot of shows i dont get how they make a living.
    to live comfortably in temecula and by that i mean you have a house and mortgage and middle class expenses, you need to be making around 80,000 a year.
    the sale and trade of those cars split 4 ways isnt doing it.

    but hey..its a tv show.

    check out ant anstead solo show

    Will look for that.

    There's been a few shows on recently.kindiget,Martin bros one ,texas metal.

    None seam to have the stupidity of the old shows.

    One thing I've noticed though is there not building enough cars quick enough now to warrant any more programs.

    They are filming real basic ****,that doesn't need filming.

    Even the big shops like kindigit can only produce so many cars a year

    | 48 chevy coupe | ford f100 | tube chassis,d pop

    Have to agree whats been said it would be better without all the fluff around the edges and story lines and more of the build stuff but that would make it more of a documentary and not appeal to the masses I am no engineer so not sure how good there work is .
    But they have a water jet cutter amongst other bits of kit and seem to fab most of the stuff for there builds in house, and don't seem afraid to chop things up.
    and if you read youtube comments its clear the program is not for everyone And I certainly are not struck on all there stuff but take it for what it is and its easy watching ......for me anyway.

    Constance is a model but she's actually from a drag racing background and can wrench with the best of them apparently!
    (I resisted the temptation to joke about having a couple of nuts that could do with her help!)
