First Dan told the Client that spending that kind of money on an a very poorly kept Corvette was not worth spending that kind of money on a low horse power Corvette that needs a body off complete restoration. It's to bad that he missed this part of the show. I have...

He is making more money from the Network than the restorations. Why does he never mention the cost of those restorations? I smell FRAUD here.

I took my very nice classic 1968 Impala to a custom Automotive Shop in Norfolk - FantomWorks to repair a complex Comfortron heating system. I agreed to an original estimate of $1,070 to "diagnose and repair as practical to make system fully functional." The costs...

I got to the point I could not stand Phantom Works. Dan has a horrible grumpy attitude and acts like he is the best shop on the planet.

Not even close. If you ever look closely the body work is horrible. The gaps are bad the panels don't fit properly and his constant "oh *** and hanging his head really gets old. Anyone with a good eye can see the work is poor.

One example of really poor bodywork and ruining a nice truck was the 51 Studebaker that he said had a horrible grill and paint job. In my opinion it was a simply done clean two tone job. He charged the guy $124,000.00 for a truck that went out in raw metal. The close ups of the metal work were horrendous.

The tail gait was rippled, Right rear fender was full of hammer dents. The front of the hood was full of dents. This truck was no where close to being ready for paint or even sealer for that matter.

Two shops that do beautiful work and are fun to watch are *** Rides ( except for "Kev Dog" because he is such a crybaby and thinks he is funny) and Iron Resurrection. The Martin Bros do beautiful work.

There is no way in the world this is a true story! Just by paying the $160,000 instead of filing a Lawsuit he couldn't possibly lose proves how bogus this b.s.

is. Give us a break, Moron.

I am sure that this happens to more people that you can imagine. I am pretty sure it was not personal. People like you come in all the time.

There are a lot of stupid shows on this network and this isn’t one of them.. Dan has integrity and that’s something you don’t find a lot. The more these companies take over networks the crappier and more fall into line these fund *** shows become.. Really like stupids...

This show had less drama and more actual step by step repair than any other show. Very unhappy that it was not renewed.

Big mistake Motor Trend. Lost your bedt program.

Not impressed by him by any means. Sorry he just is not good and makes everything seem it has big issues and difficult and then over states what he actually does.

I loved fantom works. I agree with other comments about keeping the show and getting rid of some of the others.

Really a good show. This helps me feel better about getting rid of MT tv from my tv package.
