'Kit: An Autobody Experience' all set to premiere on Discovery Turbo

Discovery Turbo is all set to unveil its newest show, ‘Kit: An Autobody Experience’ from February 16, 2011. The show will showcase what-all it takes to build a kit car from the ground up.

The series will present four different style car builds from four different build teams. It will not just be a competition, but a great television experience and excitement for automobile enthusiasts. The 24-hour channel dedicated to speed –Discovery Turbo, brings with drama and exhilaration as an expert team of passionate individuals use car-kits to build a host of alluring vehicles.

A key highlight of the show is Bruce Meyers, better known as the Godfather of kit cars and the man who created the wildly famous Dune Buggy. Desire to own something unique and custom-made is something most automobile fanatics can’t let go of. The kit culture is growing rapidly to fill the need for fun cars, built by hand and built to last. Kits are no longer floppy fiberglass bodies bolted to a VW chassis, but cars produced by an industry constantly improving to meet the demands of car builders and owners today.

Key Episodes Highlights:

• Car Factory owner Mike Vetter and his crew are ready to show the viewers how to mount the new fiberglass body on GT super car build. Get ready for some great tips and tricks of the trade.
• The Lamborghini Diablo is known by many as ‘Italian Royalty’ in the exotic supercar world. Some say that the mere sight of one makes young people’s hearts race uncontrollably. But what if one of these supercars turn out to be a fabulous fake?
• Is it an El Camino or is it a lowered Chevy pickup? Or a Viper heritage? Is it a new series race truck? No, it’s a super simple, Super Stepside kit built by Ricks Rods of Lafayette, Louisiana and one can never guess what we used as a donor car.
• No-one would ever guess that a radical truck could ever come from an 80’s era family sedan. Rick’s Rods is going to give the plain-Jane a facelift with some makeup and a new attitude, in just one week.
• A new kit car! What do you really do with it? Drive it to its limits. The episode brings Eric Andreen as he takes his Daytona coupe all out for a shot on Pinks: All Out. The series also checks out some kit car clubs and some kit-car shows.
