Just sitting here watching Overhaulin and wondering how many would like to have their truck Overhauled if they had the chance vs restoring it themselves. I enjoy doing metalwork and bodywork and paint, especially paint, so I would rather do it myself. Just wondering.

I love the show, would like to pick and choose parts of the rebuild, but the reason I do this is because I enjoy the build.
I do not think I would want a Foose original, I would be afraid the dust would scratch it!
It did not take long for that seal team member to try and cash in on his build

If memory serves me right, they restored a slick years ago. And, as I recall, the guy turned around and sold it not long after it was done. Fortunately, my wife knows my tastes, so if she was the one they were asking what I would want, I'd be pretty safe. I have to agree, that some of what they're doing these days is just re-hashed, but Chip Foose and crew can do the motor/engine/body work any time for me if they want....

Is that the show where they play pranks on one another, complain about the new project, bitch because they don't have enough time to finish .. but do, the head guy draws a design, they go to a bonding secession, work late for free, have strange hair dose, sharp featured facial hair, have lots of tattoos, blow out the budget and make 50% profit on the sale.... nah never seen it !

No that's not it Allen, this is the one where the head guy has a ton of talent insists on good hard work,no drama, and puts out cars worth a mint just because its his.
The Idiot you are thinking about is Richard Rawlings out of Texas,he fits all your comments, is all ego with little to back it and no car talent...a real huckster.

I hate big wheels and shaded 2 tone paint jobs. Also don't want a crate motor small block. Wouldn't mind having my bumper tucked or my build finished, just do it with the parts I want to use.

Chip has a ton of talent, his tastes don't always align with mine and he's too quick to throw out a cool engine for a crate motor.

My friend submitted my truck information to the show when he had it at his house when I was dealing with the initial cancer stuff and beforehand I moved to Jersey,

It was around the same time they aired that Navy Seal slick truck so obviously would t have picked mine too. It woulda been cool, but no personal connection to the project if it was chosen.

I really like the show myself. Foose and his crew do great work, much better than the 2 idiot brothers at Gas Monkey Garage. That's a real joke...

But I had much rather see anybody do their own Slick. Even if it's not A-1, you tried. A person merits more credit from me, just knowing he tried. It's the ones who say "I can't do it" BEFORE they even try that I give the least credit to. It's a TRUCK. If it doesn't come out right, save a little money and do it again...HEY, practice makes perfect. Don't think for one minute that even Foose was BORN with all his know-how.

It's YOUR truck, do it YOUR way, and satisfy YOU, NOT the world. When listening to others opinions, all trucks will probably come out looking the same. Wouldn't that bore a person to death. Even "I" have talents in one area, and not so much in others, but I love my truck, even if others don't. You'll never please everyone.
