Mark Worman, owner of Welbys Car Care in Springfield, Ore., spent $25,000 filming a pilot episode of his show Graveyard Carz, which documents his six-man crews painstaking, months-long restoration of a 1971 Plymouth 'Cuda.
The show is a cross between American Chopper – with Worman
as the gruff ringleader – and the PBS program History Detectives, the Register-Guard reported.
In an online clip, Worman
is showed arguing on the phone with a stubborn employee who doesnt want to come to work because hes mad at Worman.
The pilot of Graveyard Carz
also documents Worman tracking down the 'Cudas original owners and scouring the junkyard he
resurrected the car from for original parts.
The newspaper says 47-year-old Worman
– who never graduated high school and has been working on cars since he
was a teenager – has a big enough ego to believe Graveyard Carz
could be television gold, but an Oregon producer told the newspaper that its very difficult to move from pilot episode to full-time series.
