Fifth Gear on Channel 5 is still quite good. Snippets can be found on YouTube before the programme is broadcast.

Kindig Customs, on Discovery, featured 1967 Chevvy Nova 2. Well, at least its body. Everything else was changed.
You couldn't tell from the outside with its superb paint job, that under the bonnet was a custom 468ci (10+ litres) big block V8 that dynoed at 2200bhp, and with nitro and specified tuning would produce 4000+bhp. Undriveable, they acknowledged. Noisy bugger. The rear wheels were a good foot wide. Must have cost $100k. Took 7 years to finalise and finish.
Those guys produce some first rate custom work. Even the exhaust was a work of art.
