Gentlemen, start your engines and let the auction begin! Discovery Channel travels deep into the heart of Texas and into the fast-paced world of auto-flipping. Watch as four, extremely competitive auto body shops engage in full-on bidding wars to find the most valuable jalopies and turn them into resell jackpots.
Austin, one of the car auction hot spots of the U.S., is where the junk cars of yesteryear get a last chance to hit the road. The world of auto-flipping is a risky business and the stakes are high as each auto body shop faces off in auction showdowns. The teams only have 10 minutes to do the most basic inspection, but they are not allowed to start the cars. Will the cars have workable engines? Will the buyers discover a hidden gem? Or will they go broke before they even reach their auto garage? Watch as one man's junk, truly becomes another man's treasure.
