Default South Beach Classics

What do you folks think of the new show on Discovery called South Beach Classics?

I think it's kinda cool and Robin is hot!

The owner reminds me of a bad used car salesman.

That guy is a greasy used car salesman. Kind of a bully.
Robin is attractive, but the fakies and pulled face are starting to wobble. Nice build, though. Glad she got railed by the guy for offering half of his asking price.

The Bugatti replica is a joke - $2.2 million is what he valued it at. You can clearly see GM power door lock switches in door panels.

He said it was a "replica", so NO way it would be worth even $100K. She's NOT that hot, but he is still seriously "over-chicked"

I watched half of it last night and turned the channel. It's probably the worst car show on TV.

That's about the only thing the show has going for it.

The show goes like this:
Rich used car salesman with trophy wife lowballs dirt poor rube with a classic car, takes it across town to a sale and flips it for a massive profit.

Some guy comes into his showroom and gets reamed while buying a classic out of his showroom that he got dirt cheap from some down on his luck guy, salesman makes massive profit and wins his bet with Robin that he'd make more money than her.

Robin takes on a project because she has something to prove and wants to build something and make a profit out of it, having the hired help do all the work while she project manages. Salesman husband argues with her that "trade and flip" is the only way to go, none of this silly fixing cars up...

Every episode is a variation on the theme.

That Vernon guy has been around for years. Surprised at how much junk he had on the lot.

Robin....

Watched 2 shows and really enjoyed it. It's like the affordable version of Chasing Classic Cars for the everyday Joe Shmows.
