-- Velocity's #1 Series BITCHIN' RIDES Returns Tuesday, Oct. 11 at 9 PM ET/PT with Special Back-to-Back Episodes --
(New York) - When his pen hits paper Dave Kindig begins the process of creating exceptional works of art from ordinary, rusted out cars. He's a self-made custom car fabricator whose successful business, Kindig-It Design, was built on his childhood passion for Hot Wheels, Legos and drawing. In Velocity's wildly successful series, BITCHIN' RIDES, viewers head inside Kindig's expansive custom car shop to watch how Dave and his team sketch, design, fabricate and assemble cars from the wheels up.
Now, as the #1 series on Velocity with more than 20 million viewers reached, BITCHIN' RIDES returns for season three on Tuesday, October 11 with special back-to-back episodes at 9 and 10 PM ET/PT.
"Our viewers have positively responded to the jaw-dropping builds by Dave Kindig and his team, making BITCHIN' RIDES a top destination on the network," said David Lee, vice president of production and development for Velocity. "Every episode we get to watch Dave's vision come to life and witness the expert work being done at Kindig-it Design. They continue to push the boundaries this season and we can't wait to see what they come up with next."
Season three of BITCHIN' RIDES taps into cars of all types and decades, from a 1929 Roadster to a 2014 Mercedes. Kindig and his crew have seen it all in their Salt Lake City establishment, and work tirelessly to transform each project into a real bitchin' ride. This season Dave also tackles some of his own personal projects, finally transforming a 1972 Bronco he purchased three years ago and getting his hands dirty on a more recent purchase of a 1962 Volkswagen Bus. Season three premieres with back-to-back episodes featuring a 1952 Pontiac with strange things lurking beneath its metal and a 2014 Challenger asking for an air ride upgrade. With almost 20 years under his belt, there is no project Dave won't tackle to create the finest rides to hit the road.
BITCHIN' RIDES is produced for Velocity by Fischer Productions. Nick Meagher is executive producer for Fischer Productions. For Velocity, David Lee is executive producer and Robert Scanlon is executive vice president and general manager of Velocity and Automotive Content.
