Fast N Loud Gas Monkey Mustang?

Ive notices on some of the episodes there is a 67-68 mustang convertibel with a rollcage, lightbar and baja spare on the trunk.

Anyone have any info or pics on this car?

They never show the complete car.

Never noticed it... I've seen every episode. They lost their ass in the most recent one on the caddy and 48? chevy. I forget. Looked cool, but didn't look 25 grand cool.

But a google search came up with a couple crappy pics of him sitting in it:

Oh that purple thing they painted black, that hurt. They seem like good guys who do decent work too. I thought I saw a red 66 on their yard in one shot too.

I have not been too impressed with the way they rebuild cars. The flat black Fleetwood was not too bad looking to start with they always seem to add rims that are too big and "slam" them with air ride.
I think that the rims should be "car jewelry" and really compliment the car. Black rims and most spoked rims do not do a car justice in my opinion.

And the Money Car guys do just enough to get by and "flip" the car for profit. I do understand the need but I like a more thorough rebuild. I miss "Overhaulin" with Chip Foose.

Velocity is speeding ahead with a new season of "Overhaulin'."

Car-centric series has received a renewal from the Discovery-owned cabler that caters to an upscale male aud. New season is set to premiere in the fourth quarter.
"Overhaulin'" takes beat-up cars and trucks and gives them a refurbished new spin, revitalizing the lives of their owners in the process.
Show, produced by WATV Prods., is hosted by Chip Foose, who also leads the group of auto restorers. Foose, Lenny Shabes and David Lee exec produce.
The series first appeared on Discovery's TLC net from 2004-09; it was a viewer favorite there. Discovery brought it back, thinking it was a solid fit for Velocity viewers.
"'Overhaulin'" is exactly the type of programming we want to bring to Velocity because it fits with our genre of auto-themed shows geared toward the upscale male and is sure to be a ratings driver," said senior VP Bob Scanlon. Velocity was rebranded in the U.S. from HD Theater last fall.

'Overhaulin'' returns on Velocity - Entertainment News, TV News, Media - Variety

I don't get that channel, so I hope the episodes are online.

Kona beat me to it! I've been seeing promos for the new episodes of Overhaulin lately and been so looking forward to them. Gas Monkey to me is just some regular, down to earth guys who flip cars. It's good entertainment and nice to see the cars. I agree though that they aren't the best or most thorough builds. I did hear them mention if it can't be flipped quick they don't want it so I guess they aren't in to the restorations as much.

Sweet, I'm looking forward to some more episodes. Foose has always been my favorite builder. I fashioned my 1967 Camero after one that he built in Hot Rod Magazine in the early 80's and it looked spectacular. I still wish that I had it, but I was too young and broke to make it everything that it could be at the time. Now I have the time and money to invest in my 71 convertible and it is coming along very nicely. It may have too much power though..........just kidding you can never have too much!

It looks like (or a replica of) the mustang from the movie "The Thomas Crown Affair".
The car was originally built to be used as Arnold Schwartzenegger's car in the movie "The Last Action Hero", but wasn't because they said that Arnold looked too big in the car.

Do a quick google for it and you'll see a bunch of pics and info on it.

I watched it, check out my newer post, post #9

I was so happy I got to watch it. I bet discovery got a lot of emails, etc about it not being on their main channel that they switched it. I watch discovery a lot and I don't recall seing promos for it, so it may have been a last minute channel swap? I already have my DVR set, there's a new episode this week!

"Overhauling" is fun to watch but is certainly not "real world" restoration. They have an unlimited budget to do over the top
resto-mods. Pretty much nothing in the show is take-away for the average hobbyist.

"Fast and Loud" is more down to earth. The Gas Monkey guys are doing this for a living. To me, their restorations are more in the "hey, I could do that" realm.

Both shows have their good points but "Overhauling" is a fantasy land for most of us.
