Plot Synopsis

Twelve garages from Los Angeles, Detroit and Atlanta build innovative vehicles in a tournament style format, competing for a $100,000 grand prize. Two rival garages from the same city are given four days to complete a vehicle challenge. The garage with the winning vehicle, as judged by car designer Chip Foose, advances to the next round. The losing garage goes home. The two winning garages from the first round compete each other to crown a city champion. In the final episode, the three city winners take on each other in the ULTIMATE CAR BUILD-OFF. Vehicle challenges include: turning a minivan into a supercar; transforming a hearse into a hill climber; adding wings to a Firebird to make it fly; creating a submersible vehicle; and making a car that can ride on water. The garages are: Los Angeles (Hollywood Hot Rods, Pure Vision, Speed Unlimited and ES Motorsports); Detroit (Team Z Motorsports, Alternative Automotive Technologies, Monkeywrench Racing and Voodoo Choppers); Atlanta (Atlanta Air Exchange, Mild 2 Wild, Batlground Motorsports and Auto Extremes).
