    Ugly. I hate when people paint their cars to appear as if it has "patina" it is such bs and a waste. Always remember fellas it is easier for a rich man to act like a poor man than for a poor man to act like a rich man.

    An after though: patina'd items may look well as art but not on an automobile it just comes of as a pile of rust, a pile of rust that someone spent a pretty penny to make

    Everyone has their own tastes man. Would I spend the money on a fake patina paint job, no... But I do like the way an old classic truck looks if left all worn out on the outside, but built underneath.

    The guys on Fast and Loud clear over all the rust and oxidation to keep the barn-find look. IMHO it works on a few rat rods, but I really think taht painting or acid fading a new car to look older is lame.

    Please.... it's a "reality show" aka fake/staged/rigged/phony. Notice whenever he takes one of his cars to an auction he loses his ass,but somehow always manages to make huge $$$ selling to his friends and shills. I wouldn't let those ass clowns work on my lawnmower.

    everyone of the Discovery Channel shows is crap. even sharkweek was forced over dramatized. I miss Monster Garage and the first two seasons of American Chopper. The formula back then worked.

    speed channel is all NASCAR or those 30 minute infomercials that are disguised under clever names like 2 Guys Garage, or Gearz.
