(Silver Spring, Md.) - When it comes to busted, wrecked rides Andy Cohen is king of a crashed cash kingdom. But he does more than scrap cars for parts and rule over his fast-paced, lucrative junkyard in suburban Washington, D.C. Cohen is a wizard when it comes to finding value in automotive rubble as he works his magic to turn rough rides into straight cash on an all new season of JUNKYARD EMPIRE. Watch it first on MotorTrend.com and the Motor Trend App starting Thursday, July 5, and on Velocity beginning Wednesday, July 11 at 10 PM ET/PT.
In every episode of JUNKYARD EMPIRE, the hunt is on for big, washed up metal-cars, motorcycles, buses and heavy equipment-from police impounds, private auctions, dealers, random driveways or old lots. What might look like a rusted-out beater to most is all green to the eyes of Cohen and his dad Bobby as they mine for valuable parts or scrap metal, and incredible restoration projects. The junkyard is pure hustle-and-bustle chaos as cars are lifted, stacked, torched, stripped and scrapped, but Cohen sees through the commotion to bring worthy cars back to life one panel and plug at a time.
The upcoming fourth season of JUNKYARD EMPIRE features an unprecedented variety of reclamation projects from a Unimog, an old school firetruck and a 1967 Austin London Taxi FX4 to more traditional builds of a K-9 Police Ford Pickup Truck, a Lamborghini, a Dodge Viper, a 1983 Power Wagon, a 1971 Barracuda, a 1964 � Ford Mustang, a 1986 Monte Carlo SS, a Jeep Wrangler and many more.
