Anybody watch \"junkyard wars\"

Incase nobody knows, theres a show on TLC(i think) called Junkyard wars thats on Monday nights at 8pm EST. Its pretty cool, they have 2 teams and give them 8 hours to build a predetermined item by getting all the stuff from a junk yard then compete against each other to see whose is better. It's pretty damn cool to see them build this stuff. Last week they had to build a tractor for a tractor tug of war out of nothing. If you guys get a chance, check it out, its pretty cool.

Love that show too. It's on my must see list each week, even though they are reruns right now.

Re: Anybody watch \"junkyard wars\"

yeah it's great but did you ever notice how they just happen to place the right amount of stuff so that each team can make what they need. but just barely. still pretty cool though

Re: Anybody watch \"junkyard wars\"

yeah, but at least they hide the stuff so it's not out in the open.

Re: Anybody watch \"junkyard wars\"

I only have about 14 hours of the original British version on tape. The humor in the american version isn't as good but they also can't get away with as much on american TV. Still a great show! I just wish they would stop calling the wrecked Samari's "Jeep's" everytime they steal a part. Try to see the last couple of seasons with the bikers and army guy's if you can.

YES!! Every time I watch I can't help but think, "The guys on the short-wheelbase BBS could kick their ass!" Any way you "grouchy old-timers" could put out a challenge?

Re: Anybody watch \"junkyard wars\"

This is a pretty cool show. I found it a while back and try not to miss it. Comes on Wed. night on TLC here in the mid west. I think a few of the guys on this board could kick some butt on the show. Looks like it would be a blast!


Experience always comes right after you need it.

Re: Anybody watch \"junkyard wars\"

yeah...that show is awesome. the older british ones were definitely better though. The show reminds me of the A-team, how they always made cool armored vehicles and whatnot out of whatever they found laying around an abandoned warehouse.
