Watch Velocity

I just got cable and internet last week. Not much of a TV person, but I just found Velocity. Iím not a fan of the British shows as they are mediocre at best, but Texas Metal, B.Jackson auctions, and they have a new show called JDM Legends thatís pretty good.

Itís fun watching these guys build custom bag setups and stuff like that. I just had my first day off this month (I just moved and have been working 6 days a week and getting called in on my day off) so Iíve been doing laundry all day while unpacking and organizing my living room binging this channel. Itís like reality TV for teens but for car dudes. I love it! Is there another channel Iím missing???

British... you talking Wheeler Dealers? I LOVE that show! Ant isn't quite as awesome as the old mechanic, Edd, but still very likeable and good with walkthroughs.

Haven't heard of JDM Legends, but I'm not much of a TV person either, so I don't catch all the new shows. There aren't any other car-specific channels that I can think of (not sure if it's still around, but there was one, can't remember the name, with Overhaulin', Two Guys Garage, etc, but generally Americans are terrible at hosting these kinds of shows imo), but search for Top Gear. British, but with a massive budget. Nut-huggers of the old hosts rag on it, but Chris Harris is a godsend to that show - finally they get a real driver!

Yeah I will give credit to Top Gear being a fun watch. JDM Legends just came out last week. There’s a new episode tomorrow on a C10 Skyline restoration. I just watched an episode of Wheeler Dealers that was pretty cool. It was them showing how much HP you can get back from basic tune ups. They got like 40hp back from a HEI distributor and jet swap on an old ass Mustang.







Nut huggers. Lol.

I see the previews for JDM legends on my facebook sometimes...considering I have an FB RX-7 I may watch it just for that episode. It comes on MotorTrend on Demand too.

I just watched the first episode. I think I have a new favorite show.

Of JDM Legends? The new one aired this evening & it was pretty good. I like the guys in the show. Theyíre socially awkward and seem humble.

Yeah, JDM Legends. It's about time Japanese cars start to gain some honest respect in this country, so we get shows like this and Gas Monkey building their Z.

Repetition isn't good for a show that wants to last, though. Hopefully they go a different route with this car.

I worked on Speed is the New Black's 1st season on Velocity last year, and back when I had satellite (and was still living at my mom's house), Velocity was just about all I watched.
