VELOCITY REVS UP THE ALL-NEW SERIES "FANTOMWORKS" FOR THE WORLD PREMIERE ON SUNDAY, JUNE 30 AT 8 PM ET/PT

(Silver Spring, Md.) - America's largest automotive restoration shop is opening its doors to Velocity viewers beginning this Sunday, June 30 at 8 PM ET/PT in the all-new original series FANTOMWORKS.

FANTOMWORKS restoration expert Dan Short and his team only have a heart for those who genuinely love their cars. Every car has a story, but if you can't prove to Dan that you truly care about your car and want the job done right then he won't accept your business. Dan's bustling shop, FantomWorks, is the largest automotive restoration shop in America. Leaning on of years automotive restoration experience in addition to the qualities of discipline and precision Dan acquired in the military, the FantomWorks team runs a busy production pipeline in order to meticulously refurbish some of America's favorite rides. Every week old cars come with new obstacles including irate car owners, personality clashes, cost over-runs, parts problems and walkouts.

In the world premiere episode, airing Sunday, June 30 at 8 PM ET/PT on Velocity, Short pursues his passion of classic cars when a customer, James, brings in a 1963 Cheverolet Corvette and wants the FantomWorks team to add the first convertible split window. Adding to the job's complexity is that James wants the Corvette done in time for his wedding just two months away. While the team wrestles with the near-impossible Corvette timeline, Bill brings in a 1931 Model A Ford that his father converted into a hot rod. Bill is an internet mechanic who has torn the car to pieces. This would normally send Dan running for the hills, but the car is Bill's only connection to his dead father.

Upcoming FANTOMWORKS Episodes (Not a Full List):

Episode 2: "1965 Mustang and 1951 Studebaker Truck" World Premieres Sunday, July 7 at 8 PM ET/PT Cars can cement or break friendships. Dan is concerned when his best friend Charlie asks him to convert his 1965 Ford Mustang fastback into his dream car. Dan's worries are realized and the friendship is pushed beyond its limits when Charlie buys his own parts and his dream is much bigger than his budget. In contrast, the complete restoration of a 1951 Studebaker truck to a world class show vehicle is a car-lover's dream. Nothing is impossible, so Dan and the team are challenged to come up with a design that has never been seen before.

Episode 3: "1964 Impala and 1976 TR6" World Premieres Sunday, July 14 at 8 PM ET/PT When a 1964 Chevrolet Impala arrives at FantomWorks, it looks like it is half a step from the junkyard. Further complicating things is that the owner is serving in Afghanistan. He is entrusting the supervision of the ground-up restoration to his mother-in-law, a hairdresser who knows nothing about cars. Dave, the owner of a 1976 Triumph TR6 knows a lot about cars, so he finds it hard to believe when Dan Short argues against certain aspects of the restoration. Dan wants to make the car a "survivor" with original paint and features while Dave doesn't believe that it is possible.
