"so I was buying myself a vehicle and I asked my friends what I should get. I wanted something that was big and made me look tough. they said I should get a hummer and I was like nah, everybody's got a hummer. so you know what I got, I got a Cement Truck. Or as I like to call it, the CT 2004" -Dane Cook

You didn't miss much, it was just another hour-long infomercial for Unique Performance and Foose. That's all Rides is anymore. Heck, that's all TLC is anymore.
Don't get me wrong, Foose is a great designer and a nice guy, but he is NOT the only designer/builder out there. Rides needs to get back to featuring a new builder or shop every week and get their butts out of Unique's shop. I don't really like anything that Unique builds.
Their Eleanor clones don't do anything for me. It's mostly how ugly their hoods are compared to the beautiful hood on the Gone in 60 Seconds car.
Their Camaro is pretty boring and I don't really like any of the custom touches on it.
The "Stallion" was a let down too. It's a good concept, but it just ended up looking awkward and bulky. I like the wheels, but I liked them better when only a handful of 05's ran them and not 2500+.
Again, I'm not saying that these cars aren't well-built or thoughtfully designed. I just don't like any of them and it's getting a little old seeing TLC kiss their hiney so much.
