Season 2 of ‘Wrench Wars’ premieres on Monday, Aug. 6

Wrench Wars, the automotive reality competition show its creator, Brother JD, calls a celebration of the “Blue Collar Nation,” will make its Season 2 debut on MAVTV the Motorsports Network on Monday, August 6. Wrench Wars will air at 10:30 p.m. ET on Mondays and re-air early Tuesday morning at 1:30 a.m. ET.

There is a prize for the best in each of the first two rounds, and the overall winner gets the Wrench Wars belt and a check for the charity of his or her choice provided by the iconic El Rey’s Garage.  

Off the Track: 1936 Cadillac Roadster

The Agent just had to share this beauty known as “Shangri-La”  that will be offered for sale during the Mecum Auction held Aug. 23-25 at Monterey, CA.


Under the direction of skilled car-builder Rick Dore, this hand-formed roadster, whose origins are noted as a 1936 Cadillac, makes use of modern mechanical technology coupled with body accents that hearken back to the legendary pre-war European coach firms and designers. To that end, this exclusive offering features a hand-formed aluminum body fabricated to Dore’s specifications by Marcel DeLay of Marcel's Custom Metal in Corona, CA, covering a 116-inch wheelbase Art Morrison chassis that features coil springs on all four corners. From the swelling rise of the front fenders, the body lines flow gracefully rearward, leaving the impression of grand-touring performance even when sitting still, and all of it rendered in the Art Deco streamlining style of the late 1930s.
