‘Vegas Rat Rods’ Episode Guide (Oct. 26): 1931 Model A Ford Transformed

“Stampede Rod” (10/26/15) – Steve Darnell and his team transform a 1931 Model A Ford by installing a Cummins 4BT diesel engine, cowboy bling elements and an impressive new interior paint job that would make Henry Ford blush.

“Vegas Rat Rods” follows Steve Darnell – a Las Vegas native and auto mastermind – as he and his team of mechanics, automotive fabricators and welders rebuild one-of-a-kind Mad Max-style “rat rod” cars out of hidden treasures buried in junkyards, farmers’ fields and swap meets. Working out of Welderup, a sprawling garage just off the Las Vegas Strip, Darnell and his crew take creativity and imagination to another level as they assemble each rat rod into a masterpiece that represents each of their very quirky and very demanding clients.

Big changes are in store for the upcoming season, including more car action than ever before in one of America’s best car towns – Las Vegas! In addition to Welderup expanding into a new and improved car shop, Darnell and his crew will take on bigger and badder builds for new clients with even more eccentric needs. But no challenge is too big for Darnell and his team. In each episode, the Welderup team not only has to meet the high expectations of their clients, but also build the vehicle in less than 10 days.

As Welderup continues to grow, family becomes more important than ever to Darnell and the team. As the crew settles into its new home, for the first time, Darnell’s two teenage sons Chase and Kash are given responsibilities at the shop and the opportunity to learn the business from their father. Additionally, a new crew member joins the Welderup team this season. With 25 years of car experience under his belt, Grant makes the big move from small-town Canada to prove himself in the Las Vegas big leagues. Together with Darnell and returning crew members Dan, Travis, Dave, Justin and Twiggy, Welderup pulls out all the stops to bring ambitious ideas to life and create the most impressive and extraordinary rat rods in Sin City.

“Vegas Rat Rods” is produced for Discovery Channel by Proper Television. For Proper Television, Guy O’Sullivan and Jennifer Scott serve as Executive Producers. For Discovery Channel, Brad Blondheim and Christo Doyle are Executive Producers, and Meagan Davis serves as Producer.
