Across America thousands of gearheads have tried and failed to rebuild and restore their dream car. Loveable but beat up old autos sit collecting dust in garages because well-meaning owners have run out of the necessary time, money or mechanical know how to jump start their cars back to life. Now, hosts Bruno Massel and Lauren Bohlander are lending a helping hand to a lucky few in this series.
In each episode, a highly trained team of mechanics and automotive experts take over a car owner's garage with only one goal in mind — getting his or her stalled project in gear and back on the road.
The series premiere tackles two iconic 1960s Fords that have sat in the garage of the Flood family for decades. The Flood family patriarch Chris was born in Ireland before coming to the U.S. in the 1960s and being immediately drafted to serve in the Vietnam War. The 1963 Ford Galaxie he owns is a symbol of America that he loves, but it has sat in desperate need of a bumper to bumper overhaul for several years. His son Greg has also struggled with completing the restoration of a 1966 Ford Mustang since smoke billowed from the steering wheel, and the steering wheel came off in his hands while driving it. With two iconic, potentially remarkable cars disassembled and on blocks the "Garage Squad" goes to work.
