JDM Legends (Velocity) – Premieres 17th April
Car restoration show where Eric Bizek, owner of Japanese car specialist garage JDM Legends, and his team work on their customers cars to either modify or completely rebuild them.
In the programme it starts off with Erik doing an introduction to the car they are about to work on, where he is driving an equivalent model around, talking about why the car is popular within the community.
He then meets up with the new client and goes over what they want incorporated into their car, after which Erik and his team set to work. While they are working on getting the car done, they encounter a few unforeseen problems that are soon rectified, and end up presenting the completed car to its ecstatic owner.
While the show is similar in many ways to programmes like Diesel Brothers, where it’s a specialised garage working on certain vehicles, this doesn’t end up having the same viewing appeal. What with the members of the garage not being that engaging, and the slow pace the show goes along at, all together it doesn’t really have much going on that would make you keep watching.
