DISCOVERY TURBO PRESENTS REMARKABLE RESTORATIONS IN NEW SERIES EXTREME CAR HOARDERS
Discovery Turbo is back with a brand new season of EXTREME CAR HOARDERS, featuring custom car guru Rick Dore and former wrestling superstar Chuck Palumbo. Together, Rick and Chuck continue the hunt for neglected classics in the last untapped frontier of classic automobiles – car hoards.
But transforming cars for hoarders is a risky proposition: finding buyers for rust buckets is never easy, and the restoration and customization business is full of unexpected pitfalls that can sink their partnership. Chuck and Rick are all in, and it is going to be a wild ride.
After finally getting the hang of working with hoarders and dealing with the deeply personal issues that drive their obsessions, SLAM came to a sudden and crushing halt when they were evicted from their shop. A year later, Rick and Chuck have their top-notch team of auto fabricators back together for another shot at turning SLAM into a custom car powerhouse. This could be the last chance for SLAM to rebuild the lives of the hoarders they work for, and to find the type of success that eluded them the last time out.
Both captivating and incredibly experienced in restoration and customization, Chuck and Rick bring a different vision, skillset and attitude to each build and each hoarder, giving the series a unique and intriguing mix of car culture and hoarder habits.
Each episode of EXTREME CAR HOARDERS features the duo helping car hoarders – in more ways than one – by offering the deal of a lifetime. They haul off the hoarders’ aging stash, sell what they can, and use the money to build the one-off car of the clients’ dreams. Not only does the hoarder receive a kick ass ride, but it also helps them shift gears and start fresh. The crew works on a fantastic range of American automotive icons this series, popping the hood on a 1936 Ford Coupe, a 1957 Ford Thunderbird, a 1937 Dodge Pickup, a 1937 Lincoln Zephyr and a 1958 Chrysler 300D Coupe.
