DESERT CAR KINGS

The McClure family business, Desert Valley Auto Parts, houses more than 10,000 rust-free vehicles on more than 100 sun-baked Arizona acres. Not content with merely providing original parts for thousands of car collectors and restoration junkies each year, the McClures and their rag-tag crew are constantly on the hunt for cars to restore -- seeking them out in backyards, barns and even on their own massive lot. Their goal is restoring these classic American cars to original glory, and getting them back on the road while discovering the unique and historically significant qualities of each car.

AMERICAN HOT ROD

Thursday, December 27
This series takes a close look at the work of automotive industry legend Boyd Coddington whose work personified the American hot rod.

Coddington passed away in 2008 at the age of 63.

From a 1965 Chevy Impala to a 1967 Camaro, the OVERHAULIN' crew transforms a variety of vehicles into works of art their owners will marvel at.

WRECKS TO RICHES
Friday, December 28
Barry White knows how to build custom cars. In each episode of WRECKS TO RICHES, Barry White's Speed Shop - with its unlikely team of mechanics, hangers-on and family members - buy a dilapidated classic car, and use original equipment reproduction parts to rebuild the car into an icon of the road. Then they try to turn a profit by selling the car. White judges each restoration a success only if he can make his money back.

BEST OF MECUM AUCTIONS
Saturday, December 29
It's a red carpet event where the cars are the stars and Dana "The Dealmaker" Mecum is running the show. Dana's auctions blend some of the best dramatic elements of sports, reality and game shows.
