"Rusted Development," formerly known as "Lords of the Car Hoards," is a reality series on Discovery Channel that is hosted by hot rod guru, Rick Dore and WWE superstar Chuck Palumbo.

Every year finding unrestored classic American cars is becoming a thing of the past. But there's a secret treasure trove of automotive relics that still exists: Car Hoards — the last frontier of the American Classic Car. Now, Dore and Palumbo are out to rebuild legendary cars and help car hoarders thin out their stockpiles of classic cars.

Each episode features Dore and Palumbo helping car hoarders by offering them a deal: pick one dream car from their overcrowded car collection to rebuild while covering the costs of the remake by parting with and selling other cars and car parts from their massive hoard. Every hoard is a surprise, a treasure hunt, and Dore and Palumbo don't always know what they're getting into. Junky hoards mean tight budgets and tight deadlines which is unknown in the custom car world. The pressure is on and they don't always get along, but together they have a passion for cars that touches these hoarders' lives, changing them forever.

Season 2

After being forced to shut the doors to SLAM garage in the previous season, our two car experts are reopening SLAM, and jumping back into the "hoarder scene" with challenges more daunting than ever. This season has everything from six-figure builds including a 1937 Zephyr (the "holy grail" of custom cars), to a Vietnam war veteran who hopes to honor his late father's memory by rebuilding a 1957 Thunderbird. Palumbo also takes on a project very close to his heart- restoring his father's 1965 Corvette, a car that set him on his career path.
