They're doing a Honda Civic on Overhaulin!! I can't beleive Foose would agree to it. I'm disappointed. Why don't they come steal my Focus if they want to do a 'tuner' style car on the show.

The only saving grace on this is the fact that it's Foose. I love the chop job body work on the car, bondo all over the place, ricer boy bumpers, fart can exhaust, primer color paintjob, excessive body damage hidden by all that bondo, typical ricer crap, and of course damage to the underside of the car, someone thought it was ok to get a car airborne like in F&F and drive away from it. That car is tore up somethin bad.

I agree with your point about trying to diversify their audience. I'm a huge fan of old school hot rods and muscle cars, that's how I got into cars, working on hot rods with my uncle, then once I got my Focus, it expanded my horizons into the new school 'tuner' world.

Foose is the greatest, I was absolutely in awe of his cars when I saw them at AutoRama.

What makes your Focus any more special than a Civic?
Sorry to say, but if they are attempting to broaden their viewers, a Civic is a good choice. There are a lot more (it seems- and of course because the civic has been around forever) tuners with Civics/tegs than there are with a Focus.
That said, I didn't get to catch the show. Was it really that bad in the end?

Hey, I noticed that too!


I saw the show too and the Civic seemed over the top with the custom paint job but the body work and audio install done was excellent.

Chip and Overhaulin need to stick to the classics. I havent seen them do a late model car that i liked yet. Well except for the fire fighter kid's truck, that was cool.

You could see the pain on chip's face when he saw the car roll up...civics just arent his style.

The inch thick layer of bondo is exactly why people dont take the tuner crowd seriously...no metal work, no finesse, no expertise...just fill it over with mud.

I bet you start seeing cut up trunk lids in junk yards as honda boys try to replicate that lip spoiler.

It gets a 'meh' from me, Chip did what he could. He's still my GOD as far as car customizations go.
