#1 - Drowned Delorean

Season 1 - Episode 1 - Aired 5/7/2015

In the series premiere, automobile enthusiasts Rutledge Wood and George Flanigen start up a new car restoration business and begin their search for neglected run-down classic cars to rescue. They hit the road in a custom-built 1949 Chevy Kurbmaster step van and find their first project: a purple-painted 1981 DeLorean that was submerged in saltwater during Hurricane Sandy, that's now sitting in a Fayette County, Georgia garage. After restoring the car for their client, the goal is to race it on the Atlanta Motor Speedway and reach a speed of 88 MPH, just like in the film that made this rare vehicle famous, Back to the Future. Also, Rutledge brings home a 1969 Subaru 360 mini-van, which he turns into a supped-up gas-powered golf cart.
