The show is getting better. Season 3 has had far more car content than the prior two. And, the humor between the 'characters' has grown on me, and I can't help but laugh at them now.

In researching some background on Mark Worman I found a post on a Mopar forum that explains why GC is the way it is.

Mark Worman said: The idea to create Graveyard Carz was inspired by a 1971 'Cuda 440+6 that a client of mine had purchased and wanted me to restore. This car had been totaled in 1980 and spent the next 30 years being picked apart and rusting. Soon, rumors were in the air that I was going to "rebody" the 'Cuda, using the original body numbers, dash vin and fender tag. These rumors were started by folks in the Mopar community who did NOT believe the car could be saved...I was out to prove them wrong! I decided to have a young film student from the University Of Oregon bring his camera over on weekends and document the restoration in hopes to validate the authenticity of the resurrection. Thus, Graveyard Carz was born... After creating a one hour pilot, featuring straight work on cars and no character interaction, I sent it out to the networks. After nearly a year of "sorry" or "unfortunatelies" I had find out why I was being passed by. Soon I made connection with A. Smith and Co. This is the company that produces shows such as Hell's Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares, Trading Spaces, etc. Under the direction of a very nice lady there, I learned that even "car shows" have to maintain certain elements to make it appealing to a network. Drama, Conflict and Comedy are the main ones. So, armed with that knowledge, I set out to rework the program that housed my beloved Mopars. I have always hoped I could make a program that could showcase the cars I love and spread the word of how cool they are, to the masses. I felt it was important to establish characters in the series first and foremost because I knew the 'Cudas, Challengers, Chargers, Road Runners, GTX's, Superbirds and Daytonas would carry their own weight. After revamping the program to a format desirable by networks, Graveyard Carz is now filming it's second Season. It has been sold and is airing in over 40 countries. Discovery Turbo for the UK purchased it and is set to air late this year. Discovery Latin America has bought Season I and Season II which is still in production. The list goes on and on... If you want to see our beloved Pentastars on TV then you have to ride out the storm and realize we're trying to reach more than just car enthusiasts with Graveyard Carz. There is not another all Mopar show on TV and I doubt there will be another. Rest assured I listen to everyone and make notes to make the program better. But, I also have to make it appealing to the mainstream viewing audience if we want to be around for many years to come. Just thought I should say something.

It's obvious the "SUITS" or advertisers that air these crappy car shows do do any research as to what the viewers have to say. I would think that if the people who put graveyard carz on the air would just investigate a few of these posts and posts on other sites, they or the advertisers would "jump ship" and get rid of this terrible show. I really liked "wheeler dealer" in the beginning because they showed how a lot of work was done and gave "how to" tips. But now even that show has changed to where they skip past a lot of that. It's people like us on this blog that tv execs should ask our opinions about what gets put on tv.

In reply to dherr:man I totally agree about those redneck country ass narrators on so many of the shows. Which tv execs decided that it would be a good idea to talk to the shows viewers like they are 8 yr old hillbillies?

The last episode of GYC was pretty good! This coming from a guy who HATED IT early on.

Lots of explanation of their methods, repair, paint etc.

Everything it was missing, well most everything. Now if they can drop the goofing around another 50%...

And can't they just fire the grey haired guy with the goatee that acts like a doosh? Do THAT and I'm all in.

Watching show now, better then the past. Funny thing is that when you look to see who is actually working on the cars, that douch bag Darren is not around.

Gotta agree ! This new season is pretty darned good. I checked it out just to see if I still had a good hate on and found out that I really didn't. They've made a convert out of someone who honestly just could not STAND the show in the beginning.

Now, I'd recommend it to anyone, I watch it each week. Nice to see that they've improved it SO much ! ! !

Mike Gray from Auto Metal Direct was on the last episode. A very good local car guy that is reproducing all manner of musclecar sheetmetal. Plus they did a winged car. Drooooooooolll.

Is that the show where this guy is such an a-hole to everyone else it makes me immediately flip to anything else? Why does TV think that we want to watch people me jerks to other people? I HATE people like that. I hate this guy. I hate the show because of him.

Thanks, but again. I'm not a member of face book; in order to see that link I have to become one.

Just a quick run down on what was "said" will do. I've come to really enjoy the show and wonder what's being talked about elsewhere is all.

Or not . . . no biggie either way.

I've come to the conclusion over the past few years that 'real' shows about cars aren't on TV any longer. They are on YouTube and they are well done. The Motor Trend channel has a myriad of them.

In reply to TeamEvil:

From what I can gather:

Guy takes Challenger to them to fix accident damage.

Car is returned with panel gaps out of line, braces and panels not welded where they should be, door isn't aligned properly, bolts not put back where there should be bolts, paint cracking and panel rusting under 'repaired' section, sections of replaced metal not even primed let alone painted.

That's just what I can surmise from that page. Its all hearsay to me but if it is the case then its quite damming to their shop.

They must have really screwed up if that guy brought a Challenger to them, and ended up with a '70 Charger. Poor body work or not, those cars look nothing alike.

Well . . . they're back to their old tricks only worse than ever. Checked in for a single episode and never again. This year the little runt seems to think that he can beat up everyone in the shop at once.

What a bunch of "touch holes."

How does this crap continue on ? ! ? ! ? ! ? ! ? ! ?

I have heard that the "star" of the show is really a good guy but the TV show has given him the persona of a complete D-bag. It is one of those shows that I can not watch for more than 4-5 min before I have to move on.

Horrible. I'd say the majority of people who watch it are not car guys.

"I get irrationally annoyed when I see the commercials for the show and he does that."

I KNOW !

In any real world, his telegraphing that punch with the little scrunch down and twist before hand would result in a smack to his head every time. He's a fool for incorporating that little dance into his "wind up."

Yep. Some one will lay him out if he is not carful. He needs to layoff the androgel.

I feel like I can see through that facade if you can even call it that.

My guess is that he's a goofball and he knows that better than anyone. I don't for a second think he's a badass but more importantly I don't think HE thinks he's a badass.

I don't at all see him genuinely taking himself too seriously.

He had Goldberg and an ex-boxer on and I thought he was obviously in awe of them rather than the idiot that Jesse James acts like.

IMO Mark Worman is just trying hard to be funny and entertain people and is very passionate about Mopars.

I don't think for one minute that he's the guy that Jesse James tries way too hard to be.
