It is one of the better car programmes on T/V, and everything is done correctly as it should be...Dan also tells it how it is :)

I've been watching a lot of Overhaulin' too. Both Overhaulin and Fantomworks are repeated on Quest, along with the entertaining Classic Car Rescue.
Chip Foose is a talented designer and his designs are a nice balance between custom and standard. I don't agree with the pranking though, as it doesn't really add anything to the show. If I wanted pranks, I'd watch old episodes of Beadle's About!

I like Overhaulin too but find a couple of the 'presenters' annoying.
Fantomworks is the best show as there is no pranking and no stupid suspense moments that many shows seem to have :?

Hi Jason,
I find myself watching Quest quite a lot these days, as there are some really interesting shows.
Going back to FantomWorks, I like the cars that they do, and the timescales for restorations are realistic. They don't claim to turn a car from a wreck to concours in two weeks.

Yes I agree , with fantomWorks they test the car and you find out how much they paid . What sometimes is a lot of money . Also I like how he will not let a car leave his building until it’s 100% right and safe what is what you would want . :beer:

IMO, Fantom Works is by far the best all round car programme at present.

August Bank Holiday Monday 27th , Channel 4 @ 9pm http://www.williamsf1.com/racing/news/2 ... -channel-4
I'm not a F1 fan, but with Guy this should be good.
