"GARAGE SQUAD" HELPS DESPERATE OWNERS TRANSFORM AUTOMOTIVE NIGHTMARES INTO DELIGHTFUL DREAM RIDES

--GARAGE SQUAD's New Season Premieres with the First Four Episodes on the Motor Trend App Wednesday, August 22--

(Silver Spring, Md.) - So many great cars sit idle in garages across America either half done or scattered in parts. Stalled out dream projects nullified by owners who want their cars road ready but who are short on knowhow, time, money and/or the right tools. Luckily for some the GARAGE SQUAD - world champion National Hot Rod Association driver Bruno Massel, expert mechanic Joe Zolper, co-host Heather Storm and the team - have all the right expertise and resources. They're ready to turn nightmares into gratifying automotive dreams in an all new season of GARAGE SQUAD premiering on the Motor Trend App on Wednesday, August 22.

"At the end of the day, GARAGE SQUAD is a series about rescuing cars and helping deserving families get their beloved rides back on the road," said David Lee, vice president of production and development for Velocity and Motor Trend Group. "This season we're delivering more to fans with a greater variety of builds on the show, and by premiering the first four episodes on the Motor Trend App before the series returns to Velocity."

In each episode the GARAGE SQUAD comes to the rescue with a team of highly trained mechanics and experts who take over the car owner's garage with only one goal in mind - getting his or her stalled project in gear and ready to drive. This season finds Massel, Storm, Zolper and company working to repair a variety of vehicles including: a 1974 Ford Bronco for a Pastor; a 1993 Chevy Dually; a 1975 Chevy Corvette for a police officer; a 1971 Dodge Dart; a 1978 Chevy K20; a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda Convertible; a Chevy Nova that's bee in a family for three generations; a 1959 Studebaker and more.
