I grew up in the car business and Dan and his team remind me so much of my father and the way he tried to run his restoration shop. We were not the engineers and re-designers that the Fantomworks staff is, but I was always reminded of the care and dedication. Dan brought back happy memories of a youth long gone. PLEASE reconsider.

Fantomworks with Dan and crew is the best car show on tv. The nutcase Mopar man trying to be cute, funny or comic is really sick. I stopped watching his silly *** Sure his company does great work, but Dan and crew are much more professional and caring about the owners...

FantomWorks was one of the best shows on that station, why in the *** did it get canceled? You show garbage and cancel the only good thing that they had? What's wrong with you.

One of my favorite shows on this channel. I have no idea why it was canceled, but I consider that decision a huge mistake. I would greatly enjoy the show if it were brought back. Although, I do enjoy the reruns. But it does not replace watching new episodes weekly.

This is the BEST car show that I watch and enjoy. No BS Dan says it like it is and is truly authentic on car builds.

Just another great car show thrown to the waste, because it doesn't have eye candy. It is really disappointing when a great quality show is canceled from higher ups that no better, BS.

Dan Short is the epitome of everything BAD about auto repair people. His first and only concern is profit!

The car comes in for a running problem and he sells them a suspension overhaul and a new interior! Huh? When he finally does go after the original problem it's usually misdiagnosed and entails and engine/fuel system/ignition overhaul/replacement. The SHOTGUN approach!

If you repair EVERYTHING then you're bound to finally fix the original problem. The problem is the customer is now flat broke for what should have been a $100.00 repair! In all my time in the auto repair business I have seen it internally controlled. If we saw a tech up selling unneeded work or over charging the other techs in the shop made sure that was short lived.

If management didn't immediately address the issue then WE did and the offender always left in pain...... One bad apple spoils the entire barrel and we weren't going to let him give the rest of us a bad name. I spent 4 years in the US Navy as a jet engine tech. Over 30 years as an auto tech working for G.M.

dealers, Mitsubishi dealers and then owning an independent Mitsubishi specialty shop for over 4 years. Full ASE certification. California emission certification (tested 97 percentile!!!). I learned early on to treat my customers with respect and to treat the money they were spending as if it were my own.

I had a huge customer following because of that.

Dan Short would NEVER talk to a customer and would be in my shop less than an hour before I fired him! Goo GOD I'm so glad that moron has been cancelled!

Disappointed in decision to cancel FantomWorks

First the show is educational and entertaining Dan Short comes across as a person with integrity Honesty and when everything is going down hill a sense of humor FantomWorks is far superior than the Boring Boring Mopar man Mopar originators probably turn over in there graves to have to listen to Dave Dan Mike or what ever his name is. The name of the show should be Mopar the SNORE with whoever is hosting the show My viewing of Motor Trend will decrease cancelling FantomWorks very bad decision Maybe you guys should rethink this move

I enjoy watching Fanton Works, my daughter brought me A 65" in tv for the garage so I would enjoy watching the Motor Trend car shows Fanton Works is not going to be in the line up, well you could get rid of some other shows. and keep Fanton Works in the line up.

Fantom Works will be sorely missed

Fantom Works is the best restoration series on what is now Motor Trend. I have been disappointed with most of the new shows. Yes Dan gets pissed when a customer wants something that is not in the best interest of the vehicle, safety and restoration short cuts. Dan will not put his company’s reputation because a Customer wants to not fix all the safety issues and does not want to spent what’s necessary to repair their vehicle to function safely and run properly. I will really miss the new episodes of Fantom Works. Maybe Discovery Channel will pick up this great Car repair reality series.
