Power Block, Horse Power TV

Ok so has anyone else noticed over the past year that the quality of the power block has gone so far down hill that it is almost unbearable to watch. Every 3 weeks they have re-runs, the vehicles they build are way out of most peoples reach, and low buck how to's are almost non existent. Extreme 4x4 seems to be the best show now but that is because Ian knows his sh!t, By the way I miss Jessi. Trucks is horrible and all they do on horsepower anymore is run engines on a damn dyno.

End rant

Ok theres more. There are no really good car show on tv anymore in the U.S. I remember when I was a kid there was a show called 2 guys garage. They always did low buck how-to's and showed step by step how to do it.

Don't even get me started on the POS American version of Top Gear.

End rant 2nd time.

It has been going down for years. The truck shows went into the toilet once Stacey David left and the hot chick from Extreme 4X4. I pretty much dont even bother with those shows anymore unless they are dealing with something related to one of my projects, which may become more frequent now that I have the Camaro.

I wish they would put up cars that people could actually get and put money into. Not like a brand new expensive car. They act like we are all rich that can throw 100s out the door like its nothing and can just throw a supercharger or turbo, new exhaust, paint job, etc. etc. on an expensive car all in one day. Sure that stuff is cool and all, but why can't they get on a more realistic level? They think its more boring to watch? idk
