This year I had the honor of being a guest builder and fab specialist on
"Motor City Motors," which is likely to become TV's hottest build show. Produced by the same folks who brought us "Monster Garage," it takes the best parts of it's predecessor and ups the ante regarding the craziness of the builds and style.
Not only did I get a chance to work with an awesome crew on the Fest Evil (which will be episode four), I got called back for the All Star team. I kid you not, we built the coolest, most ambitious monstrosity ever attempted on a TV build show. I feel totally confident saying that the bar has been raised, and if the show gets picked up for a second season I can only imagine what's going to come next.
Since we opened IFM in 2002, I've had the chance to work on a lot of crazy projects with ridiculous deadlines. The things we built on Motor City Motors were truly amazing projects and have definitely taken the lead as the wildest things I've ever done...and that's saying something.
For the moment this page is something of a placeholder. A lot of work goes into the production of a show like this, and it's only fair for these builds to be unveiled on the Discovery Channel as they footed the bill and gave us all the opportunity. As my episodes get to air time, I'll be updating this page with lots of specs, gritty details and what photos I have available. Until then, all I can really offer is a link to our company press releases as we send them out, plus...
My heartfelt thanks to all those below, without whom none of this would have been possible.
My partner Karen, who was kind enough to keep everything rolling smoothly at the shop while I was building crazy stuff on TV.
Dave, Jamie and John Kaye from Detroit Bros. Custom Cycles. You guys are outstanding hosts and it was great to work with you. Much luck on getting another season and a few more after that.
Paul, Juan, Dewey, Chris, Honorary Team Member Jesse and everyone in the garage, you guys weren't just All Stars you were Rock Stars.
Everyone from the production assistants all the way up to Thom Beers (The Big Boss) at Original Productions, the people who actually make it all happen and don't get nearly enough credit. There are way too many of you to name, but you're all awesome and someone needs to tell you so once in a while so I'll take this opportunity.
