Surfer Kid

#4 - Surfer Kid

Season 1 - Episode 4

Mylan goes surfing every day, getting to the beach in his rusty old 1977 El Camino. He’s one of those rare teens who’s both ultra cool and as nice as they come. Working as insiders, his folks Vicki and Tim knew that the tow truck that grabbed Mylan’s car (“due to tickets”) was OVERHAULIN’, delivering the car to the A-Team of Chip Foose, Bryan Fuller, James Ferguson, Carl Lutes, Craig Chaffers, Revo, J.C. and surf legend Tyler Hatzikian. The tough assignment: making the El Camino into the coolest of surf-wagons. Of course, when Mylan went to our fake impound, he was turned away -- the car’s in his dad’s name. As the rebuild went on, surfer Tyler Hatzikian created custom boards to ride on the El Camino’s tano cover. The final creative meld of surf toys and surf wagon was truly breathtaking. Mylan was soon sent to yet another fake car impound. This time, he was confronted with the truth of the whole strange week, along with his new ride. The incredible vehicle brought Mylan to tears, and when it was all over, there wasn’t a dry eye in the shop.

Beverly Hills Camaro

#12 - Beverly Hills Camaro

Season 1 - Episode 5

Actor Ian Ziering played the role of “Steve” for years on “Beverly Hills 90210.” His character had a love of cool and fast cars -- that “love” wasn’t acting; Ian is a car guy who has been trying to trick-out a ‘68 Camaro for years. After enough stalling, Ian’s pal Terry got involved. He’s our insider and our A-Team on this Chevy is Chip Foose, Sal Perez, Jim Sleeper, Aaron Ohama, Josh Kamholz, Rick Andersen, Mundo Hernandez and Orlando Hernandez. The ruse: the Camaro is locked in a shop that Ian hears is going “bankrupt.” Of course, nobody is going bankrupt, nothing is being liquidated, but we prank and fool with Ian as his ‘68 Camaro comes together for a week at American Muscle Cars in California. When the car is finally cool and Foose-perfect, Ian is told to show up at AMC or risk losing the car to shop creditors. Standing before the locked-up shop, who phones Ian? None other than fellow 90210 star, Jason Priestley. Jason tells Ian that he is now on hidden camera; that inside that now-opening shop is the very cool car Ian always dreamed about.
