Re: Netflix Fastes Car

I tried. Dude lost me when he said his thirdgen with a 6" tall cowl hood, slicks, and exhaust pipes sticking out the front fenders is a "sleeper".

Seems like the kind of car show I'm really not into. Too much bs and personalities, not enough wrenching. Seems to be the recipe for all car shows. Even how they screwed up Wheeler Dealers and made it another "send it out for a complete paint job" show.

Re: Netflix Fastes Car

Just finished the first episode. I agree with the "too much drama, not enough wrenching" comment. I was going to stop but might watch just to see the 3rd gen.

Re: Netflix Fastes Car

the show is way too cheesy, the guy said "i have all the best of the best stuff under the hood but the outside looks like sh*t" yet all it was was a beat up looking small block with nitrous.

as someone said earlier, all these car shows aren't made for real car guys, they're made for the people who think they're car guys but are really more into the fake drama. I can't watch any of those discovery shows, Monster Garage was the best car show Discovery ever made since it at least showed the people doing work even if the cars were 5 day crap builds.

Re: Netflix Fastes Car

Complete and utter garbage. Kept telling my wife that it had to be scripted because actual car guys wouldn't say or do a lot of things that were in the shows.

Felt really bad for Abel Ibarra and his Mazda though. At least that was an actual sleeper and a really unique original.

Re: Netflix Fastes Car

Oh I believe that the cars were real cars. Owned by real people.

However in the interest of ratings they have amped up the drama to level 11 with fake arguments. Which actually turns me right off.

Re: Netflix Fastes Car

Way too much drama and definitely not enough wrenching. I watched the entire series some how but was definitely not really into it. The NY lawyer was a real dick and hopefully karma catches up to him and his lowsy sense of style. Too bad. It could have been a real show if it lost the drama.

Re: Netflix Fastes Car

An hour to get to a sub 14s drag race... obviously way too much drama and too little details on the builds. First episode they focused on the ratrod guy's disability more than his ride, and that's kinda lame imo. He didn't seem like he wanted a pitty party. I'd rather you focused on my car, but maybe that's just me? Saw him cruising that car in Huntington once, too. Loud as hell!
