MISFIT GARAGE Cab Crash: Negligence, Accident or Sabotage at Fired Up Garage?

MISFIT GARAGE returned to Discovery Channel for an all-new Motor Mondays season last night, and they continued down the path that gives credence to their “misfits” moniker.

The team worked on their first truck build to start off the new season, and it was looking like a good flip for Fired Up Garage. The truck was a 1969 shortbed Chevy that Jordan found. Scott and the main buyer, Thomas, headed out to check it, and it turned out to be a winner. It was covered with goat poop, but, hey, you gotta see thru the cosmetic to get to the prize sometimes, right?

Thomas did buy the truck for a cool $8,000 (after the owner tossed out a crazy $11K starting point) plus a rooster—yes, seriously, a rooster. And, since Jordan found the truck, Thomas gave him the opportunity to take the lead on the flip. Things were going great—until the paint job.

Fans may think that Corbett was the problem and, yes, he gave them a hard time as usual. But, the trouble came AFTER the paint (a dark, pearly red), when Scott and Austin were taking the painted bed and cab back to the garage. They strapped down the pieces and started back—and shortly thereafter, the cab went flying off the back. It wasn’t shocking; it looked like Scott only used a single strap to hold it, and no doubt the wind force on it was tremendous as they drove down the highway. Fortunately, no one was hit as the cab bounced down the highway, but the cab was totaled—and Scott appeared rather lackadaisical about the whole incident. His attitude, plus the fact that he strapped the cab down much better AFTER the crash than before, not only made the partners angry, it also seemed to make them suspicious, as well.

Maybe he was just trying to keep everyone calm, but Scott really was a little too light-hearted about the situation when he told the team. Thomas had had a buyer lined up, but that was nixed. And, then they were put in the position of having to buy another cab and have another paint job—and he did not really seem to take responsibility for it.

“Well, you know why?” Jordan asked Tom in a camera cameo. “He never trusts me to lead a build anyways. It makes sense. He don’t care.”

“It may have been an accident, it may have been negligence,” Tom observed. And, according to the promo for next week, they will delve further into the incident:  Negligence, accident or sabotage?

We’re going with negligence; it just did not appear Scott took the time to strap the cab down properly. They were probably lucky, in fact, that the bed did not follow, the way it was moving around in the back. What do you think? Leave your opinion in the comment section below.

MISFIT GARAGE airs on Discovery Channel’s Motor Mondays at 10/9c.

  1. I think it was all a set up by the producers .why was there a camera mounted to the floor of the trailer ? When they film driving scenes the camera is usually in a following or parallel vehicle .the whole thing was a set up these shows are a joke.

    • Guy, have the same camera setups on fast n loud. Just to get certain shots while their driving. It was an accident. Now stop trying to be Mr. conspiracy theorist and use your head for once.

  2. Joe M has no Idea what he is talking about! I’ve worked on shows like this and heard from an inside source this was NOT a set up. First of all, think of the of money and man power they would have to spend on permits closing down highways and stunt drivers. GoPros man, GoPros!

  3. If you notice, the cab almost hit a vehicle after falling from the trailer they got really lucky cab didn’t hit that vehicle, so I believe that really wasn’t a set up,

  4. I think it was for the show too,.when they left the paint shop it was secured by yellow thick straps and when the camera all of a sudden was installed so that we could see it fall off,.you could see the straps then were thin grey straps.. staged staged staged all the way!!!

  5. It is a great show,better than Fast N” Loud.They are doing great without Scot,if he has lost interest,press on.It is hard to believe he throws in the towel so easy,considering he is a Marine.

  6. Scott had such a poor attitude after this accident – it seemed fake. He really cost them a lot of money and he just shrugged. Didn’t seem real.

  7. Scott’s attitude seemed very odd. That was a weird accident and he should have felt stupid. But he just kinda shrugged it off. That cost them a lot of money.

    I kinda like this show, but sometimes it gets a little dumb. And there is not any one real leader in the group.

  8. i like this show much better than “Fast and Loud”. Richard Rawlings thinks way too much of himself. I used to watch F&L but no more.

  9. I call BS on the cab drop, the discovery guys fakes a lot of crap for “the show”.
    Take a look at the “Gold Rush” episode were all of a sudden a dump truck goes off the road to make a head on collision with a camera conviniently placed in a bush.. Yeah right…

    • Ok not 1 of these clowns are decent mechanics/fabricators.. they’re crap! The work they put into any 1 of there vehicles is half assed. if they actually get good quality products, and do actual fabrication there’s only 1 of there guys I ever see doing work and that’s Jordan. Everything is sourced out besides that! Think about it… Sue does all interior, there painter does all the body work and prep, which is a joke. everything from motor to brakes to suspension is aftermarket parts. And like I said Jordan is really the only 1 doing the work because nobody else knows how to. He’s got help from lazy ass Tom.. Lmao! You never see Scott actually working on a vehicle. when it comes time to sell, to these idiots that actually buy these vehicles… Scott doesn’t hesitate to throw himself in by saying “we all did this and this” I find this to be a shot in the back, to the actual builders. Also about the truck body falling off going down the highway, when I saw it I couldn’t stop laughing! That goes to show you how horrible this shop is. I’m still trying to locate what the buyers of these vehicles have to say.. I would love to know there testimonials on these over priced pieces of garbage! The misfit guys really are just like GMG. Hell RR is behind the whole fired up garage!

  13. Sure it was fake! People watch NASCAR to see wrecks. They dropped the “stunt” cab for ratings. It attracts viewers Did people want to see a GTO run over by a tank? Was that an accident, too? The fact that we’re discussing this “accident” shows their success in attracting interest in the program. Creating drama, like destroying a “fake” cab, adds tension and suspense to an otherwise slow-moving show.
