Seasons & Episode
Delayed by numerous issues and setbacks, the 1941 Chevy is finished in the metal shop and ready for paint; fresh paint, new wiring and custom interior take this problem build to the next level.
Dave and the Kindig team add a tubbed bed and slivered Camaro bumpers to a classic Chevrolet C/K C-10.
A road warrior from Alaska arrives at the shop to add some improvements to an already solid build. To enhance performance, a new exhaust and tips are custom fabricated as well as a new set of wheels, tires and a custom interior.
Prior to the annual classic car show in Los Angeles, the guys need to shake down a 1962 Corvette and make some design adjustments to a '55 Mercedes Gullwing. Kevin hunts for new ideas, rare finds and maybe some Hollywood stars.
A simple yet classy Pontiac Tempest arrives for a ground-up build. From the outside, it looks like the team can get right to the customizing, but after the car is completely stripped, things are more complicated.
The Pontiac Tempest build continues as bodywork wraps up and Dave has designed a killer new color. Kevin shows off his powder-coating skills, and the client has a tough decision to make on the color combo for the interior.
The pieces that have arrived at the shop are allegedly for a Nova, but the only thing recognizable is the body. The challenge will be to keep the build simple and design a custom color that Dave and the client can agree on.
Dave and Kevin take the '67 Coronet, '55 Gullwing and '63 Corvette to a car show in Chicago, where they'll compete for street rod of the year. The cars need to complete a road course and be judged on the appointments of the build.
Dave loves anything VW, and he finds a deal for a rare Transporter pickup that is too good to pass up. With a few modifications, he will finish the build, but then his real dilemma begins - whether to keep it or auction it.
Dave has a challenge on his hands restoring a 1964 Cadillac to its original condition while adding modern updates. Parts are scarce and the car's current state leaves a lot to restore.
A Karmann Ghia aficionado wants some very specific upgrades for his new purchase. Custom trim, wheels, lowered stance, new paint and new upholstery are some of the items that will give this car a new lease on life.
A beauty of a car from Kindig's past arrives back in the shop for an engine upgrade. Dave and Kevin make a trip to Detroit to see the latest technology at Lingenfelter engine builders, and check out the Woodward Dream Cruise.
A client wants his '48 GMC to be Dave's baddest build ever, but when he throws Dave a curveball, it threatens the entire project. Celebrating 20 years in business, Kindig-It hosts a custom car show featuring a slew of past builds.
