    Tonight on Discovery channel at 9pm eastern time. They are turning a Ford Mustang into a mower. Jessie James is doing it.....He does custom motorcycles and I think this should be cool to see, just thought I would let all of you know.

    Yea I saw the previous epidsodes last night. The projects are ridicoulous but I couldnt' pull myself away from the TV with the cool ideas and fabrication going on. I'm an engineer and tinkerest at heart.

    The episdoes last night were Ford Explorer turned into a Garbage truck. Really cool concept the whole thing was hydraulically operated. Gull wing opens, arm folds out grasps trash can flings it, let's the trash can back down and compacts it..

    The other one was with a Limo turned into a firetruck... it didn't require as much engineerng but it was cool when "Wink" milled the missing parts for them. I want a milling machine...

    Tonight is the mower on mustang and the VW bug turned into a smamp buggy

    Looks like TLC's Panic Mechanics. Another favorite is Junkyard Wars on TLC.

    I'm watching it right now!

    Of all manufacturers to get an engineer from......SNAPPER :confused:

    They are talking SPEED, why not one of the speed king mowers DC, Hustler, BadBoy, any others, but SNAPPER??? Can you get any slower than a SNAPPER!!!

    I'd do it a little differently, but it IS a WAY cool show!

    The VW Bug all but sank in gator infested LA swamps!!!

    I would like to see the "quality" cut the 10 horse left going a claimed 70 mph! It looks like the grass was already mowed beforehand.

    I was also not impressed at the choice of the Snapper guy! I also could not believe that the starters were a big chunck of the total cost... they could have made a fuss since that one starter was brand new.


    Had to watch motorcycle madness after! My old man was just ooohin' and awwwin'!!!! And I was too..... man that Jesse James has some skills!

    I missed the shows the first time around, but then they replayed the three so I taped the Motorcycle madness, VW swamp buggy Monster garage, then the Mustang mower Monster Garage. Looks good. I watched the motorcycle one already. Sweet choppers.

    I also love monster garage. Eventhough i have only seen the one were they turn the limo into a fire truck and the mustang into a mower.
    Jason S. i agree with you it did look like it was already cut. There wasnt that much flow coming out of the discharge shute, for going 70.

    Bushhogboy, I also like junkyard wars but they dont seem like they are as good as they used to be. The things they construct are better but i dont like the hosts. Just my thought.
