(New York) - Across America, abandoned vintage cars sit for years rotting in driveways and garages as their owners lack the time, resources or simple know-how to get their autos back on the road. With hopes of a full restoration, self-taught mechanics get in over their heads under the hood and are forced to put their beloved projects on hold. This August, Velocity brings back GARAGE SQUAD, now supercharged to all-new hour-long episodes, to watch the dream team help "project car" owners turn their half-done duds into ultimate roadsters. The season four premiere of GARAGE SQUAD begins Wednesday, August 30 at 10PM ET/PT on Velocity.

This season, the full squad is back, featuring National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) driver Bruno Massel, lead builder Joe Zolper and co-host Heather Storm as they bring their expertise and necessary tools to work around the clock to transform their client's rides. Expanding to hour-long episodes, this season the GARAGE SQUAD crew work on almost a dozen cars including a 1968 Pontiac GTO, a 1966 Ford Fairlane and a 1950 Ford F3 to name a few.

In the premiere episode, on Weds, August 30 at 10PM, the GARAGE SQUAD helps Terry and his brother breathe new life into a1955 Chevy 210.
