Mike taps the growing custom van market by picking up an extremely distressed 1965 Dodge A-100 Sportsman and plans to swap the drivetrain; install new suspension; and infuse custom-built surf inspired details.
Mike dives into the expanding market for second-generation muscle cars by snatching up a 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1. The car has lost some power over the years, in addition to wooly suspension, faulty brakes, and dull paint.
Mike hopes to capitalize on '80s nostalgia by restoring an original six-cylinder 1982 Toyota Supra with a tired interior, faulty head gasket, compromised exhaust system, and one working pop-up headlight.
In the Season 14 premiere, Mike gets his hands on a 1995 Ford Escort RS Cosworth, a beloved and valuable Fast Ford that's almost impossible to find in the U.S. With the help of his new mechanic, they bring back the 227 hp engine's famous "fizz" and add a unique detail.
