I brought this as seen on discovery loved it then and love the box set. the only slightly down side not with this box set but overall is that i dont seem to be able to find any other series.
Things get hot under the hood
Primarily this is a show about a garage owner by the legendary designer and custom hot rod builder Boyd Coddington, but as those who have watched the show on several tv channels, has more of a dynamic than just the cars. The interactions and stresses of a high quality industry are played out between the individual engineers, designers and mechanics through to even the effects of the competition, especially considering the competition is Boyd's prodigy Chip Fusse, as you get the stresses of daily work, unexpected difficulties, relationships and ofcoarse the beautiful cars that roll out of the garage. For me this is not the best series, personally i prefer the later series where there is more personal changes, unfortunately for them, but means more entertaining viewing as sparks fly, no pun intended, and the stress and change actually produce better cars as newer ideas are thrown into the pot. Definately one for the petrol head but your wife might not mind it as much as you think, buy it if you like American Chopper!Read full review

Having watched the latest re-runs on cable and with the loss of Mike and Roy from the series I wanted to see it from the beginning. Great programme and you get into the individual people who are characters in themselves. The added bonus is watching a wreck turn into a thing of beauty. What don't I like about it? Well beside the dvd being in 4.3 format (which you get used to after a while). the only thing which might add to the enjoyment could be the rough cost of each build. Otherwise great show and will be looking for Series 2. Certainly I can see me collecting this series as I have with Deadliest Catch over the years.

Brill what can i say Boyd at his best from turning a 56 chevy basket case into a show stoppin hot rod and building a fantastic all alloy hotrod from scratch....All in all for a petrol head these are cool...This set of dvd discs is worth the money just a shame that they arnt alot cheaper.....
