Episodes

Season 2

Episode 1
Gary Nicholls is back and is at the Toronto International Car show to check out some of the classics, including a couple of Studebakers, ’35 Auburn, ’36 Copper Hot-Rod and so many more! Learn how the big car makers pushed the limits in the early 1900s to one up another. Where did the term “the trunk” come from?

Episode 2
Gary gets you inside a 1966 Chevelle. With a supercharged street legal 454 engine and an 8-71 blower, not only does this look like a beautiful show car, but it drives like a beast. Take a look at what it takes to assemble the bottom end of this big block Chevy.

Episode 3
It’s what every hot rodder dreams of, a 1940 and 1941 Willys coupe. Notoriously known for exploding engines, they were often modified with new engines and taken to the drag races. With some unique one of a kind features, take a look inside these vehicles and find out why everyone is in love.

Episode 4
Gary is driving down to the Toronto Motorama Expo to look at custom cars, motorcycles, and classics. Back in town, Radical Rods is hosting a charity car show. Take a look at a ’55 Chevy, ’36 Ford Black & Copper Hot-Rod, and a mysteriously unknown car?

Episode 5
Gary and his team are used to restoring classic vehicles, but what do they do when another type of classic comes there way? Then a very rare nine passenger ’56 Chevy Bel Air wagon gets a new lease on life. Kendra Adams returns to Radical Rods year after year to get her stock race car ’69 Chevy chassis with an Impala SS body repainted.

Episode 6
Gary is visiting a vehicle that he previously restored, a 1968 International Pickup – a car that a wife and son are very emotionally attached to, and want to restore it to honour their late husband and dad. Coming to them in pretty bad shape, they were able to restore it to look better than the original plain factory settings.

Season 1

Episode 1
In this episode see how Gary and his team restore a 1936 Ford Hot Rod pick-up truck full of chips, dents, and even bullet holes. Can they get this hot rod back into pristine condition before its next destination at a private car show competition at Cobble Beach Concours d’Elegance?

Episode 2
Get inside a restored 1965 Oldsmobile Starfire Convertible. And meet the family that has made a very difficult decision to sell their 1965 Ford Galaxy - a rare factory built race car.

Episode 3
It’s the age old debate, Mustang vs. Camaro. You decide - does a 1967 classic Mustang Eleanor resto-mod make your heart skip a beat, or would you rather be behind the wheel of a 1977 Camaro?

Episode 4
When you think of the 70s, what cars come to mind? Get an up close and personal look at a 1970 Lincoln Continental, 1970 Lincoln Mark III, and a 1971 Dodge Charger RT.

Episode 5
See an iconic milk delivery style truck that has been transformed into a gelato food truck. Get inside a classic ’66 Chevrolet Corvair to find out how it inspired the Camaro style.

Episode 6
Most car restorations take 6 to 12 months, but can Gary and his team restore a 1968 Cutlass Convertible in only 5 weeks for a big corporate event for Nutrafarms?
