FROM TRASH TO TREASURE: ROOKIE CAR-SAVANTS CHASE THE CLASSICS IN ALL-NEW DISCOVERY SERIES "CARSPOTTING"
Series Premieres Monday, August 7 at 10pm ET/PT
(New York) - Nestled deep in the remote region of the Pacific Northwest are decades of preserved American muscle. Entrepreneurial brothers Carlos and Pedro, coupled with their car savant and best friend Niko, are in the business of recovering these hidden gems and re-glorifying the holy grails left for dead. Determined to make a name for themselves, the trio seek out the most sought after abandoned vehicles to turn big profits and keep their budding business afloat. The all-new series CARSPOTTING premieres on Monday, August 7 at 10pm ET/PT on Discovery Channel.
Young, determined, and hungry for success, Carlos and his team will hustle to hunt and flip hidden relics to their former glory. Leaving no stone unturned, they scour the mountains, forests, and farmlands of the Pacific Northwest by foot and flight - whatever it takes. Once recovered, the team returns to the shop to assess their haul and get down and dirty revitalizing the classics.
Stopping at nothing to get their hands on the hottest new projects, the scrappy team of friends and car-hunting gurus are breaking the industry mold and practices by ditching the rules of finding and flipping. But their methods are untested and it's up to them to establish their dominance. Can the ambitious crew break out among seasoned pros, or will their blood, sweat, and tears go to waste?
CARSPOTTING is produced for Discovery Channel by Leftfield Pictures. For Leftfield Pictures, David George, Shawn Witt, and Graham Hughes are executive producers. For Discovery, Craig Coffman is executive producer and Todd Lefkowitz is producer.
