Trucks HAS NOT been the same ever since he left. All these new guys do is copy stacey's builds.......that 60-66 chevy = copperhead. das bronco = project big blaze. I've been watching that show since day one 10 years ago(when it was TWO hosts, not just stacey), shadetree mechanic, popular hot rodding, all this before the 'powerblock'. I'll admit it...i watch all those type of shows....even trucks still. It's a good watch. But i do have to say....thank god they dumped that wrestler guy off trucks, and that loud darker guy on muscle car.

Knightmare...you are partially correct....partially. If tnn/spike wouldn't let him build/fab all his own stuff anymore.....then why is muscle car on? why is xtreme 4x4 on? those are non-bolt on shows after all.... There hasn't been any published statements as to what happened between him and spike. Notice how all his major builds of his last few years of trucks...are HIS? A good majority of the equipment from trucks are his as well. Carried over to the gearz shop.
Pretty much to cover his absense. After he left alot of people were po'ed. and for a while you saw quite a few reruns more than usual. Musclecar is sponsored by yearone seperately. You ever noticed that about all of the cars and trucks that courtney hansen talks about come from year one. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if Courtney Hansen ends up leaving because next week Chip Foose pays a visit to the Power Block next week. He was Courtney's former boss. It must have been bad because there was no warning of her leaving his show. Muscle Car pretty much was started by the fans and year one. And it started shortly before Stacey David left. They need him back even though I love his new show Gearz. Plus Spike TV was going through ownership problems too when he did leave. TNN no longer exists according to them. It's now strictly Spike TV. They're thinking about trying to get Overhaulin on there. I guess that one episode of that new show they advertised didn't work out.

, and that loud darker guy on muscle car.
I KNEW there was a second, blonde haird host with Stacey for the first season or two. But no one who used to watch it with me could remember him. I've also watched since day one (when I had access).

And,

I like Lou, he brought a new sense to TV charisma. Not the dull, boring, monotone or fake sounding impresssion I get with some of the other hosts. (like the kid on Trucks now, he sounds fakely over inergetic every time he talks)

Anybody seen the new show on Discovery called "Street Customs" ? I watched it for the first time last night. It's silimar to the Boyd show, but this one is following West Coast Customs' shop. Pretty decent show. DEFINATELY not as crappy is Pimp my ride. lol. They really build some sick rides. Take a look at their website at their 2dr 300C convertable and their 2dr charger that's painted like a ghost general lee...

It comes on thursday nights after american chopper on TLC. It's west coast customs. The real west coast customs. Not that pimp my ride crap but the real deal. They were just a dealer and had to change their name to gas or something. I don't even think that show even airs anymore. Stacey David's show Gearz is random but it usually airs on sat. mornings around 9:30 am EST. on Speed. It's a good show. They did one for Shaq about 2 weeks ago.

I know. It's just that the way they spoke you'd swear they were legit about being called West Coast customs. That might be why they aint on the air too. Who knows. Anything that GAS put out was pretty much a trailer queen after they got a hold of it.

*smacks head on desk* Shane, where have you been hiding man! I've been watching that show for a while!

I don't like it near as much as Unique Whips, but it's pretty decent. I dunno, I like the east coast custom style a lot more than west coast. I had a buddy who owned 5280 Autosport here in Denver before he went into a partnership and the partner was a douche and closed the shop after Byron left. They did a lot of east coast themes in their work, while still adding their personal touch to it. They had a killer 2006 Charger they built as their promo vehicle... I'll have to find a picture of it again. Big Memphis audio dealer too. Sad when they closed shop as they were great people to work with.

Cooter was a pretty cool dude and he became a huge fan of Mopar while doing the show. He had a chance to get a wrecked General Lee and jumped all over it. He still wishes that they made this body style of the charger. He lit up like a christmas tree when I informed him of the email my mom had gotton about Chrysler considering the 1969 body style for the 2009 Charger. This paticular car was a 1970 model back dated to 1969 but they were in the process of trying to locate the grille to finish the job. The 1969 had the "I" piece grille.

Those are welded shut. It took poor old cooter nearly 20 minutes to get out of it. L.O.L. I don't know about the west coast customs car though. I'd love to have them both though. I take the older one first of course.

I thought you were leaving again? Seed60 was talking about the WCC Charger.

Look where this thread has gone! lol. I think WE ALL know the Original General Lee being a '69 Charger. There were no 4dr chargers back then, so why would i be talking about WCC converting an old charger into a 2dr, when they are already a 2dr?

No kidding. I think the majority of members in here knew well before you. Myself Included. I grew up around these types of cars. That is my favorite car period. The photo of the one I posted aint a true R/T or a 1969. The reason is because the R/T had the 440 in it instead of the 383 and also the grille is not the "I" piece grille.

I noticed that...'68. The car could be a true R/T, w/o the original engine. A buddy of mine has a '66 Chevelle SS and another has a '67 Chevelle SS.....both small blocks....and neither of those came off the assembly line with a small block....rather 396's. I'm just saying it's a possibility.
