Although fictional, the show challenged producers to ensure as much of the drama, about a bike gang holding court in the town of Charming, California. while covertly running a weapons racket, was as realistic as possible right down to the choppers parading down main street.

The Real Reason Jeremy Clarkson Left Top Gear https://www.hotcars.com/the-real-reason-jeremy-clarkson-left-top-gear/
The BBC’s hit TV show Top Gear is one of the best car shows… in the world. It is so popular, that there are many adaptations broadcasted across the globe. Some say that modern YouTube channels and other car shows are essentially modeled after its popular format. The current format of Top Gear was introduced in 2002 with the three original hosts — Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and Jason Dawe with Andy Wilman as the producer. The second season saw Dawe being dropped in favor of James May, and the team then went on to create automotive television history.

Vegas Rat Rods: WelderUp Found One Of Its Old Classic Builds From Season One https://www.hotcars.com/vegas-rat-rods-welderup-classic-build-season-one/
General Motors have for the longest time now been creators of vehicles fit for their purpose and a whole lot else. Though GMC products have always been capable and dependable vehicles, they've always somewhat lacked the character that is found amongst other brands. As a result, they have often been the subject of wild and creative transformations carried out by the crazy bunch over at custom shop WelderUp of Vegas Rat Rods fame. One in particular that avid watchers of the show will remember is the Cummins Diesel-swapped 1954 Cab-over engine Truck from the days of Vegas Rat Rods. Around nine years have passed since the truck originally left the shop following its restoration, and it doesn't appear that the years have been terribly kind. Despite this, the talented boys over at WelderUp have every intention of bringing the old girl back from the dead and returning her to her former glory.

The Fast and the Furious hit theaters with a vengeance in 2001, immediately sparking public obsession with the film, its stars, and its cars. The core cast of Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, and Jordana Brewster introduced the world to their characters' involvement in the modern era of car modding, street racing, and organized crime. Over the next two decades, the franchise has grown through eight more movies while adding international action superstars like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Jason Statham, and Charlize Theron - while simultaneously dealing with the loss of Paul Walker to a 2013 accident in a Porsche Carrera GT. (Walker was in the passenger seat, and the crash was attributed to aged tires.)

The Fast and the Furious hit theaters with a vengeance and introduced the world to a ragtag crew of street racers and the cops trying to bring them down. Over the next eight films, the franchise has grown in scope, plot, and the cast has expanded well beyond the original's stars, Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, and Jordana Brewster. Where the early films centered on a small crew and their world of local street-racing, the latest installments have grown to include international spy rings, government conspiracies, and military-industrial complexes, even space travel features among the most ridiculous scenes. The cast has added Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Jason Statham, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Charlize Theron, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Lucas Black, Elsa Pataky, and Kurt Russell—while also dealing with the tragic loss of Paul Walker in 2013.

17 Times Gas Monkey Garage Messed Up https://www.hotcars.com/times-gas-monkey-garage-messed-up/
We've all watched enough of Discovery Channel's Fast n' Loud, or at least heard enough about it, to know that it's a show about Richard Rawlings' Gas Monkey Garage crew as they transform rusty old cars into nice, profitable customs. Well, sometimes the end result isn't even all that nice, just a lot more expensive than when it first came to the shop. It's not all fun and games, though; just like any other self-respecting reality show, there have been feuds, squabbles, and cast changes. By now, it really shouldn't come as a secret to anyone that reality TV doesn't contain much reality, there's on-set coaching, guidelines for participants, and straight-up deceptive editing, all making whatever we see at home very different from what's really going on.

When Sons of Anarchy debuted on FX in 2008, it was an immediate hit for the network. It focused on the title motorcycle club working out of the small California town of Charming. It was a Shakespearean tale, as young Jax Teller takes over leadership of the club his father had once run. Jax soon finds himself struggling to move the club towards a better future as their dark past keeps pulling them back. While motorcycle enthusiasts obviously loved the show, regular viewers were enthralled by its powerful stories, excellent cast, and stellar writing.

Chasing the ladies are a mangy crew of Half-life War Boys, poisoned by radioactivity but besotted with the mystical power of the V8 engines that they all hope to ride to the plains of Valhalla.

Sons Of Anarchy: 16 Surprising Facts About Charlie Hunnam And His Motorcycles https://www.hotcars.com/sons-of-anarchy-facts-about-charlie-hunnams-motorcycles/
Jax Teller was one of most popular characters on Sons of Anarchy, as the President of SAMCRO. He knew when to be tough, when to be a bit softer, and he was arguably one of the most successful characters FX ever portrayed on TV (just as Sons of Anarchy was their most successful television show). What’s interesting is that in real life, Charlie Hunnam was much the same. Charlie Hunnam has a love for motorcycles that might even surpass that of the character he played on Sons. The show reignited his interest in riding, and for the entire seven years he took part in the show, he was always seen around Los Angeles riding his bike. It was kind of funny that the bike he rode was the same bike Jax Teller rode, but there was a reason for that, which we’ll discuss below.

There are some magnificent vehicles showcased throughout the Fast and the Furious franchise, but few are as iconic as the Nissan Skyline - Brian O’Conner’s choice of car in several F&F films. In fact, despite 2 Fast 2 Furious being one of the least favored movies in the series, Brian’s 1999 Skyline R34 is one of the most celebrated cars. The silver Skyline with blue decals features in a variety of fan pages and franchise merch. It was modified for the film with a MotoRex body kit and 19” HRE 446 Rims, along with an eye catching Flexivity wing. This set it apart from other Skylines seen in the progression of the series.

It spawned short-lived offshoots (Cajun Pawn Stars) and longer-lasting spin-offs (Counting Cars, American Restoration), and made the Harrison family both famous and wealthy. Thanks to the show, Gold & Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas went from having 80 customers a day to over 1,000, with a line around the block at all times. Rick Harrison and his son, Corey, even stopped working regularly at the pawn shop because it’s became so crowded.

Then there are the dialogues, monologues, deadlines, and whatever else happens during an episode. Most, if not all of this is scripted on most shows today.

Here's How Much Mike Hall From 'Rust Valley Restorers' Is Worth And How He Got Rich https://www.hotcars.com/how-much-mike-hall-rust-valley-restorers-is-worth-how-he-got-rich/ Estimating the net worth of someone like Mike Hall from Rust Valley Restorers is far from easy as he keeps his personal life well under wraps. It explains how there are things about the Netflix show even fans don't know. Mike isn't one of those celebs that puts their entire life out on social media. He doesn’t do social media at all, and he barely talks about his family on the show. However, it's fair to say that the Canadian Netflix star is fairly wealthy, with various sources reporting an estimated net worth of $5 million.

The Ice Road received a universal response by both film critics and the public as being a rather mediocre film, but in 2021 there certainly has been a shortage of car and trucking films. The film stars Liam Neeson of Cold Pursuit, another film that features some cool vehicles including a memorable snow plow.

10 Facts About Ice Road Truckers That Make No Sense https://www.hotcars.com/10-facts-about-ice-road-truckers-that-make-no-sense/
Ice Road Truckers was a real-life series that became extremely popular with fans that had never driven an eighteen-wheeler. True truck drivers, on the other hand, found the series to be a little far-fetched and a lot of acting drama. That is, of course, not including the one fan that tried to reach his dream of becoming an ice road trucker for real and died on his first time out.

The Real Cost Of Making A Batman Tumbler https://www.hotcars.com/the-real-cost-of-making-a-batman-tumbler/
The Batmobile has seen many prop cars built to co-star in the numerous adaptations of the capped crusader to make it to the screen. Typically, a long and cartoonish vehicle with plenty of gadgets and trickery, fans are prone to making their own version of the car for shows and car meets. However, when it came to director Christopher Nolan's dark and gritty incarnation of Batman with 2005's Batman Begins, a new style of vehicle had to match the trilogy's tonal shift. The Tumbler was born a supercar inspired co-star. Canonically, the vehicle is an ex-military prototype, tucked away at Wayne Enterprises. Actors Morgan Freeman and Christian Bale test the vehicle in its camouflage livery in a testosterone-filled scene. The stakes are a little higher in this scene as the Tumbler was a real car made for the film, without CGI the car drove, jumped, and smashed through walls in the course of production. The Tumbler could cost millions.

The Grand Tour Carnage A Trois Is The Height Of Buffoonery That We Love https://www.hotcars.com/the-grand-tour-carnage-a-troi-is-the-height-of-buffoonery-that-we-love/
Ever since The Grand Tour went on to become a car-related travel series, the show has had its ups and downs. Naturally one cannot possibly continue to deliver their best in every attempt. Isolating Season 4 of the show, Seamen, was quite an interesting film. But A Massive Hunt was not their finest moment. Now that the trio is stuck within the confines of the UK, ‘Lochdown’ (Episode 3) gave them a chance to return to what they do best. Arguably, it was one of the best performances from Clarkson, Hammond, and May since Mongolia.

Most of the traditional faces in the automobile world have been men, and it’s only now that women are truly breaking through the “mold”. But it’s not as if women have not contributed to the world of vehicles, because they have. Florence Lawrence, the actress, is credited with turn signals while the founder of Autoweek is Denise McCluggage. And then there are women like Danica Patrick and Amber Balcaen, and even Emelia Hartford, proving that gender has got nothing to do with racing. Or gumption!
