Just watched the "rerun show" about the blue 1965 GTO. hit on the right side.

The owners had received a check from his insurance company and brought his car to Fantom works. Dan told the owner that there where no replacement parts available when he inspected the car. REALLY......Original Parts Group has every sheet metal part he needed.....door,1/4 panel, and rocker panel. $ 65K later and snow job from Dan the customer left.

Hope he was wearing tall boots...cause it was getting awful deep. Sad thing about the whole thing is....the car in not worth $65K in the real world. I also have seen some really shoddy work. Bondo and paint will cover many sins.

Some of Dan's customers have no clue about cars.....so they leave with shiny paint and a rusty bottom.....the car, not the customer.

Now...before you jump on me. I spent 45 years as an auto tech and many years in a body shop on high $$$ cars.

I just watched a show with a ‘49 Chevy truck that need a glass frame rail. Dan said the part is no longer available and they’d have to create one with who knows how many man hours.

I found the part on Google in less than a minute for $39!

The bills like an attorney. Totally unethical.

Good show. But Dan is all about getting his 10 page bill ready for the customer with some labor charges to the half minute!

Bahahaha this guy...OPG is a aftermarket company...meaning aftermarket parts...the guy got a check from insurance company because the car was a total loss...he most likely had a insurance company that will only use O.E.M parts or he had a O.E.M policy....maybe you should learn about the business before you speak

Watching the 69 Z28 repair show. Initial evaluation of it being a numbers matching restored car was so sloppy.

Right away he says it has the correct high performance 4 barrel carb on it. They didn't use Holley carbs back then.

It would have been a Carter AFB. On and on they say wrong things about the car.
