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.

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.

Fantom Works not being renewed
Preferred solution
for Motor Trend to renew Fantom Works
I've been watching this show for a while now and really can't stomach the way Dan traps customers and they don't even realize it. I just don't understand why people think that spending 60-100k for a project is ok when the same cars sell for half the price at Mecum.

I can buy a truck like mine most likey cheaper possible nicer condition the difference is I owned mine since new 19 years now raised 8 kids and my trucks been thru good, bad, thick and thin that's priceless to me. That's the kinda stuff that makes people spend what ever they feel like on their original vehicles vs buying a cheap look alike

I disagree with your comments. When there is mutual agreement and the customer demands a complete restoration of an old, rust-heap of a car, it's going to be expensive due to the work involved to make the car safe. Time and again, Dan insists that the car be road...

Most of the car build shows have a heavy exposure to jerks and comedians doing the car work. Dan dosen't allow any of that.

Good for Dan watching every detail about the build. The Iron resurrection show was mention as a superior shop. Some one is blind and must be impressed with the blonde that's dumber than a rock.

There are certainly other good shops, most are heavy on stupid and fogged over on the TV side oif the show. Go Dan Go!

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.
