Yeah, I saw that on forbbodiesonly.com. looks like it would be a cool show. They also have more video clips I found on Youtube.... http://www.youtube.com/user/graveyardcarz#p/u/9/krWEu78PCnI

Nice idea though, although it looks to contain also a fair bit of drama, something I could do without.

It is a great idea , but they need to use a lot of nos stuff instead of trying to save a completely rusted crushed panel.  theres nothing wrong with using NOS mother mopar panels  and theyre still out there  but very spendy not as spendy as trying to save a hopeless panel.   They also need to replicate the factory welding process. I can see theyre plug welding and patching a lot.  that to e is absurd.  I talking big patches too. And yeah  what is this guys background with mopar restoration.

I hope it gets on tv Ill bet it would have a following.

OK just being honest here I spent ten min. clicking through selections on that link and only saw the two guys ribbing each other, the guy in karate stuff, and a walk through a garage past a 72 Mustang, a Toyota and I think a Honda to a Challenger almost done. Frankly I got bored...the bickering/flirting was all I found? I couldn't find any work going on, no cars being recovered for repair, no action taking cars apart or putting them together, it was like ordering a steak and being told an hour later how good it was then waiting 10 minutes more for a photo that you only get a glimpse of. Where's the BEEF! You need to snag people and hold them with action, the car is the star not you guys! I was excited at the format and theme but the banter was over bearing. This has potential as a show but I couldn't find the show itself just lead ins to more talk about stuff that was done or going to be done.  shruggy  Don't get me wrong...I want you to succeed.

I'm all for a show like this and would be a faithful follower, if and only if, the show sticks to restoring Mopars and all the ancillary things associated with that.  No garage drama, no throwing around body panels in the shop, etc.  I am not one bit against using new repop parts where applicable.  If it were not for the existence of these parts the restorations a lot of us are working on would be immeasurably harder or downright impossible.  I did like the idea of going out to where the car lived it's life to try to chase down original parts.  That's something all of us would probably do.  And I love junkyard hunts for parts even though finding stuff for our cars in a junkyard is just about over.  Plus, more info on engine rebuilding would be interesting.

Great, just what TV Needs another Barrett Jackson/Wrecks to Riches/ American Chopper Series that does nothing to promote the hobby except tell the average NON car guy that that wreck of a Charger he has been sitting on for over 25 years, was "Gonna Restore it someday", Asking Crazy money for it cause "It's the rare version with the 318 4bbl option with automatic on the column and bench seat, that his ship has come in....Who the hell pays $50K for a Rusted, crunched, Balled up Cuda, that has NOthing left on it....And, they have a complete scrapyard behind the shop....

I did notice they only "save" cars that are worth huge money....Hell, I been saving them in that shape without the $250K payday at the end...

I'm all for it but I hope if it goes on TV they rebuild something other than E-body Cudas and Challengers. This would be a good opportunity to explore the rich history of Mopar and actually showcase how much of a PITA it is to find parts and restore one. That said though I'd much rather see a show about regular guys restoring cars in their garages and driveways than another 10,000 sf shop full of every tool available to do the job. To me an average Joe overcoming the odds to create a nicely restored driver would be something really worth seeing.

I wouldn't say nothing. Discover has a show on every monday night I think, similar to Monster Garage called Motor City Motors or something like that. Anybody ever see it? LEON.

Hello Folks! I just wanted to thank everyone for their comments or support. At the heart of Graveyard Carz is my love for Mopars. After restoring these carz for over 20 years I know that learning is part of the hobby. I learn new things daily when I'm in the middle of a restoration. Things I thought I knew or things I've read that I find the contrary to when disassembling or inspecting an original car.

I attempt to restore every car back to OE specs using original parts.  I will use NOS and original first and aftermarket as a second alternative. There are a lot of great aftermarket parts so I don't automatically rule them out, I just make note of what parts are good replacements and what ones aren't. I do attempt to duplicate factory spot welds, assembly line markings and coatings.

I admit we are not perfect and don't know everything. We are always willing to listen to you, our friends and fans in an attempt to make Graveyard Carz better. My email is readily available for anyone who has suggestions or comments.

Again, thank you all very much for allowing Graveyard Carz to be small part of your daily Mopar fun.

Sincerely,

Mark Worman
