I'm not going for it!

All these car reality shows that buy and sell incredible muscle cars for practically no money?
"Desert Car King" in AZ consistently sell their cars at "Their" auctions, the ones they dig out of the heap that is pure scrap and restore completely in 2 weeks sell a '66 SS 396 Chevelle for less than $10k? And there's a lot more and you can't find them on their websites. The show "Highway to Sell" where they make car owners partners in a restoration and sell it for break-even money, again that car isn't on their website. "Fast and Loud" - buys an original owner 69 GTX 440 fully loaded for about $10k, a 59 Impala for $8k, and again lots more of the same and theses cars are great condition! It's like the urban myth stories that some guy my cousin knows bought a barn find '69 COPO Camaro for $3,500! Maybe pre- internet times these deals could be found but not at crowded auctions at famous shops and Rick R. Always first to the punch on out of state deals advertised on CL or EBay, come on!

All of those shows are meant to be entertainment, not reality. I haven't seen one yet that impressed me very much - the principal characters don't really seem to know all that much, yet they all think they're geniuses. Lots of guys in black T-shirts strutting around and yelling "WHOOOOOO!" . That gets old in a hurry. You do get to see some pretty neat cars once in a while, that's about the only reason I'll watch one once in a while. All in all, they're pretty bad.

Something about Corvette Top lap Times kicked off of Numberg Stats...

I see it as an opportunity to bring Corvette Racing back to the USA where it belongs.

yeah! I'M always on the look out for deals on older muscle cars and theres slim pickings and 90% of the current owners seem to think that the prices they see on those auto auction sites
like the palm beach BARRETT JACKSON auction are normal.
when you point out they are trying to sell rusty junk that needs extensive restoration, before its worth 50% of those prices, they feel insulted

TV reality shows are just fiction and advertisements, not even much entertainment. Have not figured out where the reality comes in?

It's just TV, don't take it so seriously. You do know Ice T isn't really a cop, right?
