Ultimate Car Build-Off was a short-lived reality car building competition show.


The game features various car builders from around the country as they compete to win a $100,000 grand prize. Mechanics in Detroit, Los Angeles, Atlanta, and other American cities vie for the money by proving their talent in the garage. Each episode features two shops battling head to head as in the ultimate car renovating challenge. Turning a minivan into a racecar, creating an underwater vehicle, or making a hearse into an off road vehicle are just a few examples of the challenges the indefatigable mechanics must complete in less than forty hours. When the car is complete, Foose judges both of the entries and decides who advances to the next round.
