i just had an idea for a show that i think would kick ***. i was watching biker build off and was like "how come they dont have that, but with cars?"
i think a show that would pit different cars and builders against eachother for some sort of trophy.
you would be rated in 3 categories
1. performance part would entail a 1/4 race and/or autoX. this way people cant just win by making some flashy ricer with lots of bling
2. looks would entail how good the looks, this way you couldnt just win by being the fastest, you also have to raise eyebrows.
3. quality would entail how good things were done to both aspects(looks and performance). this will show who is a better builder by not half assing ****.
and just like biker build off, the cars would have to travel a great distance, pitting the drivers ability, the builders ability, and the cars reliability on the line.
you would have 15 days to take a car from stock form to finished product. you would be able to use whatever manpower or funds the builder has at hand. no 10k limit on parts, if the shop wants to spend 20k then let them, cause that doesnt always mean the most spent will always win.
and things would be classed better. RWDvsRWD, AWDvsAWD, FWDvsFWD. not until later in the ladder do you start to mix things up(yes there would be a champion builder). that way theres no AWD 1g vs FWD honduh in the 1/4 and autox, cause we all know who would win. well at least the performance, the honduh could look better and be more reliable(as in, make it to the end spot without breakin).
the show will not feature some big name host, however the shops will more than likely have cheif builders that are well known in each of their circles. the show will focus mainly on the building portion, much like the discovery/tlc building shows, and unlike the speed/mtv crap.
i think the show would kick ***.
