Some shows may be taking the Thanksgiving week off, but not MISFIT GARAGE on Discovery Channel! Tonight, the guys from Fired Up Garage are on the move in an earlier time-slot, with the first of a two-part episode, featuring a Nova flip.
Fans of MISFIT GARAGE know that is modeled on the show from which it spun: “Fast N’ Loud.” So, week after week, the guys at Fired Up Garage take an old classic, typically rusting away in someone’s yard, barn, or just sitting under a tree somewhere—Thomas has the touch when it comes to finding old cars to flip—and turn it into something that someone out there would actually be proud to own. It typically comes out good for both the former car owner (they make money on a car that was literally dissolving into the ground) and Fired Up Garage (they make a little money, get some word-of-mouth advertising). But, would they be a shop without the TV show?
This is a question many fans have been asking, especially after realizing that Richard Rawlings is the executive producer of the show. Well, of course, there is no real way to answer that—who knows what they might have done if they were not on TV? Like everyone, they would have had to have done something, and they may well have started a garage of their own. Of course, it is hard to believe that with the “business skills” they demonstrate on the show that they could get anywhere sans TV, but perhaps if they were not on the show, they would not be handling their business as they do. After all, they are trying to make TV that people want to watch and, judging from all of the buzz around the show, they are succeeding with that objective. Tonight, according to Discovery Channel, on all-new episode, “One Nasty Nova, Part I”:
It’s time for the Fired Up Garage guys to shine! With a special start time of 9/8c, they step into the spotlight while working on an awesome 1965 Chevy Nova. Did you know that the name Nova replaced the name Chevy II in 1969?
Ah, the Nova; grandmothers all over the nation drove one way back when (well, at least mine did). It will be interesting to see just what the guys do with this one—guarantee it will be a little sportier when it is finished than when it rolled off the factory line.
MISFIT GARAGE airs on Discovery Channel tonight, Monday, November 24, at 9/8c—note the earlier time-slot this week, fans!
