Search & Rescue

Season 1, Episode 1 – Aired: 4/13/2004

Mat Mershimer is a straight 'A' high school student, volunteers in search and rescue and is an Eagle Scout. He also drives his grandfather's old '88 Chevy pickup truck that's seen better days. Mat's dad, Jim, contacted the Overhaulin' A team because he would like Mat, who is always doing nice things for others, to have something nice done for him for a change. But we can't make it that easy for Mat. And we need to get a hold of that truck! Our host Chris Jacobs poses as a tow truck operator who comes to Mat's house to tow away the truck because straight-as-an-arrow Mat has too many parking tickets. Eagle Scout Mat has never gotten a ticket in his life but with some help from his father Jim, as our insider, away goes Mat's truck to our Overhaulin' garage. And little does Mat know but we've got Nascar driver Robby Gordon helping the A Team out, too! Chip Foose, our Overhaulin' A Team leader, starts designing the plans for one amazing search and rescue vehicle while we continue to play a few more tricks on unsuspecting Mat. It seems that tow truck guy who took Mat's truck is actually the leader of a car thief ring! Mat thinks he's never going to see his beloved pickup truck ever again. But what does Mat see in the garage when he's invited to take a tour of Robby Gordon's Speed Shop? No way can that be his old truck! Will all the pain, and pranking, that Mat's endured be worth it once he sees his new search and rescue vehicle? (more...)

Museum Worthy

Season 1, Episode 2 – Aired: 4/20/2004

Chuck de Heras is a car collecting aficionado. His true love of the automobile and its history has meant he's developed a friendship with Dick Messer - who runs The Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. A quick call from Dick to Chuck asking if he can borrow one of Chuck's cars from his collection, a '50 Ford Coupe, for a display at the Petersen is all it takes for our Overhaulin' A Team to get their hands on this shabby classic. Time to get to work! We've only got a week. But, it's not long before Chuck gets the call from his friend telling him that his car has been stolen from the Petersen Museum. While the team works round the clock on the car, hosts Chris & Courtney pose as insurance agents from hell and show up at the museum accusing Chuck and Dick of stealing the car to commit insurance fraud. Lies, all lies, and all part of the ruse to keep Chuck away from his car and keep our team working. When Chuck gets a call from Dick Messer asking him to come down to museum, Chuck finds cop cars and those two pesky insurance agents again when he gets there. Is it possible that his friend Dick is actually a car thief? Of course not but now we've got Chuck back to the museum to reveal his new, overhauled Ford. (more...)

Actor Ian Ziering played the role of “Steve” for years on “Beverly Hills 90210.” His character had a love of cool and fast cars -- that “love” wasn’t acting; Ian is a car guy who has been trying to trick-out a ‘68 Camaro for years. After enough stalling, Ian’s pal Terry got involved. He’s our insider and our A-Team on this Chevy is Chip Foose, Sal Perez, Jim Sleeper, Aaron Ohama, Josh Kamholz, Rick Andersen, Mundo Hernandez and Orlando Hernandez. The ruse: the Camaro is locked in a shop that Ian hears is going “bankrupt.”

Of course, nobody is going bankrupt, nothing is being liquidated, but we prank and fool with Ian as his ‘68 Camaro comes together for a week at American Muscle Cars in California. When the car is finally cool and Foose-perfect, Ian is told to show up at AMC or risk losing the car to shop creditors. Standing before the locked-up shop, who phones Ian? None other than fellow 90210 star, Jason Priestley. Jason tells Ian that he is now on hidden camera; that inside that now-opening shop is the very cool car Ian always dreamed about. (more...)

It's there that over 30 student builders, along with the OVERHAULIN' build team of Chip Foose, Troy Trepanier, Bryan Fuller and Levi Green, transformed the dusty old '56 Chevy Bel Air into something truly special for the school.

The finished car will be the mascot for WyoTech, as well as a possible scholarship funding source if the Chevy is auctioned off. But before that, Dale was led on a goose chase during the week of the build, hearing that the car was discovered crossing state lines and on its way to a chop shop. OVERHAULIN' made use of the school and city, painting Western themes, as Dale was finally led back to Wyo Tech, only to see a car that in almost no way resembled the one stolen from him just a week before.

Mean Anemul

Season 4, Episode 1 – Aired: 6/20/2006

Manuel is being taken for a ride, but it's not in his precious and rare Oldsmobile 442. The ride is actually by a list of mechanics who’ve some how managed to convince Manuel to part with thousands of dollars with promises of restoring his 442 into a mean machine.

Manuel has owned the car for over 8 years, and kept it at his parent’s house. The first set of mechanics was his father’s friends, who decide to follow the father’s instructions rather than Manuel’s. The shifter has never been fixed, the suspension makes the car tilt in a bizarre direction and the engine was spray-painted a horrific gold.

Now Manuel was taken by another garage shop that stored his car for 4 months and never did an ounce of work on it. Manuel got fed up and took the car; but he still had to pay the storage fees! Now his girlfriend is suggesting Manuel take it to her reliable mechanic—which of course is Overhaulin’……...

Kate says that Manuel is a very positive and outgoing person. He’s an artist, musician, soccer player and all-around cool dude. He is also a wacky guy who will dress up in a gorilla or chicken outfit and go to a party—just for the reaction. Kate says he invented a “car alarm dance” that is hilarious: we’d love to see that performed once he gets overhauled. (more...)

Charlie and Tony have been best friends since they were teenagers, and Tony was even the Best Man at Charlie’s wedding……

Tony was raised by his single mom: he had plenty of love but not a lot of material things. His dream came true we he bought a cool classic car, but it soon turned into a nightmare when he realized how much work and money was involved to get it looking perfect.

Tony always talks about driving the guys to a baseball game in his car, but Rob says he knows Tony is too embarrassed to drive the Lemans because it’s not reliable.

When Rob was asked how Tony might react to his car being stolen/missing, he answered “Ever take a lollypop from a baby? A steak from a lion? He’s gonna lose it!” Tony’s best friends--Charlie and Rob—put that theory to the test and put their buddy through the ringer before he gets his dream car back.

Watch as Charlie Sheen plays prank after prank on his friend and joins the cast and crew of Overhaulin’ on for one of his most difficult acting jobs ever! And it’s an award-winning performance at that! (more...)

Chip & Chris Flipped

Season 4, Episode 6 – Aired: 8/8/2006

One fine day, as a fun and fascinating change of pace, Chip Foose and Chris Jacobs decided to swap jobs for an episode of Overhaulin’. Of course, that meant that Chip would spend the week co-hosting along with A.J., while Chris would shoulder the responsibility of designing the car and working nonstop with the A-Team. The car for that week was Geoff’s ‘67 Dodge Coronet, a classic-model MOPAR that Chris loves.

Insiders included Geoff’s wife, Amy and his dad, Lowell. As the week went on, Chip did everything that goes into doing Chris’ job. Meanwhile, Chris devoted every waking hour to the car build, making it into a cool muscle car that could easily be the dream-ride of any MOPAR fan this side of Dodge City. Prank-wise, Overhaulin’ threw Geoff off track by framing his “stolen” car into a fatal car accident, requiring the police to impound the car as an investigation took place. But on D-Day, the police informed Geoff that his car was not the vehicle that killed a bicyclist (played by Chip in the opening prank.) Of course, by now, the truth was told and Geoff was soon off to see his Chris-Designed ride. (more...)

Once the couple married and started a family, Isaias spoke of fixing up the A-100 and one day giving it to their son. It’s the vehicle Isaias had worked on as a kid with his dad, and Isaias wanted to keep it in the family. But Kristine knew it needed a lot of help.

She contacted Overhaulin’, where Foose was delighted to tackle such a strange ride. To keep Isaias confused, the Overhaulin’ Pranksters also took Isaias’ Sea-Doo when they lifted the Dodge. As the week went on, Isaias was flustered with the police (aka Chris and the pranksters) it seems the law was more interested in finding the more valuable Sea-Doo than the more sentimental favorite: the A-100. Chip decided to Overhaul both the Dodge and the Sea-Doo, as well as the watercraft’s towing trailer, making all three into one color-coordinated set. As the build went on, super-guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepard brought tunes to the A-Team, a crew that made beautiful music on Isaias’ big D-Day. (more...)

Episode 6: That's All, Volks!
There are only two minds when it comes to Volkswagens - you either don't care for them, or you're fanatically devoted to everything about them. In southern California the VW community is strong, and the devotees are legion. VW meets happen nearly every weekend, and the people that love VWs love showing off their Beetle or Microbus.

One other thing people flock to the meets for are the hot dogs served up by VW fixture "Hot Dog Fred”. Fred sells hot dogs at nearly every meet, but his Microbus has seen better days. The problem is Fred doesn't have the means to fix up his beloved bus.  So Chris and Chip pretend to be ad agency mad men, and lure Fred down to the Overhaulin' set for the shoot of a lifetime. 

It's a complete Overhaulin' first, and Chip is stoked to get the A-Team working on his Microbus dream, all for Hot Dog Fred. Hold the pickles, it's 100% pure beef Overhaulin'.

Like all VW fanatics, Hot Dog Fred has nothing but love for his old Volkswagen Microbus.  But after Chip and the A-Team work their magic, he may just fall in love all over again. (more...)
