[via press release from CNBC]


ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., October 9, 2013 - "The Car Chasers" are back for a brand new season of finding, fixing and flipping cars on Tuesday, October 22 at 10PM ET/PT with 16 original half-hour episodes. Two new episodes will air back-to-back each Tuesday.

The team from "Flat 12" in Lubbock, Texas, Jeff Allen, Meg Bailey and Perry Barndt, continue to scour the country, hunting for American muscle cars, classic hot rods and even the occasional Ferrari. Whether a car needs a total overhaul or just a little bit of TLC, their master mechanic Eric Ables, has the skills to take on just about any job. Each week, their goal is simple: buy low, sell high and maintain a steady flow of cars, customers and cash. Invest too heavily in a remodel or misread the market for a car and the "Flat 12" crew can lose a bundle. And when it comes to competition, Jeff's dad, Tom Souter, aka "Roundman," continues to be their number one rival. Profits trump bloodlines in this part of West Texas.


Premiere Episode: Airing Tuesday, October 22 at 10PM ET/PT

Flat 12 Gallery has a brand new location, and the team couldn't be more excited about the upcoming grand opening party. But when Jeff buys a run of the mill 57 Chevy Bel Air and announces his plan to transform it to rival his father's beloved $100,000 one, neither his team nor his dad believe in his vision. It's Jeff against the world as Flat 12 undertakes a risky and unorthodox transformation on the '57. The stakes are higher than ever this time as it's not only money on the line, but the very respect of Jeff's arch rival: his own father.


Episode #2: Airing Tuesday, October 22 at 10:30PM ET/PT

Jeff and Perry chase down some exciting leads on a road trip to Louisiana that winds up being more than they bargained for. After surviving a test drive from hell that ends up in a fire and a boat ride in a thunderstorm with a wily Cajun oyster fisherman, Jeff and Perry have to pull out all the stops to bring home some cars. The duo wind up scoring a 1978 Trans-Am with help from the seller's sassy, shoe obsessed wife, and later purchase a pristine condition 1980 Kawasaki Z1 motorcycle at a bayou biker bar.
