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.

But we can't make it that easy for Mat. And we need to get a hold of that truck! Our host Chris Jacobs poses as a tow truck operator who comes to Mat's house to tow away the truck because straight-as-an-arrow Mat has too many parking tickets. Eagle Scout Mat has never gotten a ticket in his life but with some help from his father Jim, as our insider, away goes Mat's truck to our Overhaulin' garage. And little does Mat know but we've got Nascar driver Robby Gordon helping the A Team out, too! Chip Foose, our Overhaulin' A Team leader, starts designing the plans for one amazing search and rescue vehicle while we continue to play a few more tricks on unsuspecting Mat. It seems that tow truck guy who took Mat's truck is actually the leader of a car thief ring! Mat thinks he's never going to see his beloved pickup truck ever again. But what does Mat see in the garage when he's invited to take a tour of Robby Gordon's Speed Shop? No way can that be his old truck! Will all the pain, and pranking, that Mat's endured be worth it once he sees his new search and rescue vehicle?
