    Pimp My Ride, Monster Garage, and Unique Whips were THEE car shows back in the 2000's. Before the days of Donut Media :) all we had was MTV and Speed Channel. But these shows were always so wild and kooky -- WHY?

                    I hated Pimp My Ride, it was the triumph of style over substance. It didn't even give practical instruction on how to fabricate a rolled pan, or how to repair a brake system. I seldom watch television these days, it's just soporific.

                                I worked on Junkyard Empire for season 4, all the buyers/clients were fake and all of the cars were hacked together over the course of about a year (past deadline) even though the show gives the illusion that they do it in like a week. A lot of the car's origin stories are also fake.

                                                    Then at the end, you mention that "Maybe I am an old guy after all."
