The guys hit the home stretch on the '46 Ford "Blue Thunder." Ekstensive powers up Bill's all-tube buggy with a 1,500 hp Cummins diesel engine, and actor John Cena drops off a '69 MGC, wanting nothing less than to change the game with his British classic.

Texas Metal - S2E6
#9 - Buckin' Bronco
Season 2 - Episode 6

Ekstensive's built a lot of trucks over the years, but never a Ford Bronco. Until now. The client Tony wants his rusted out 1968 Bronco roadster converted into a high powdered, show quality, off-roading truck. Bill and the guys are more than happy to oblige, giving this iconic truck an eight inch lift with custom triangulated four-link suspension and coilovers. Justin supercharges the 5.0 Coyote engine. Bill, Tim, and Jamie fabricate a new dash, a fresh engine compartment, and new roll cage. John makes a completely waterproof interior - so this topless truck stays 100 percent, no matter the weather or terrain.

NFL Hall-of-Famer Earl Campbell made a career mowing down defenders. The guys take the same hellbent approach to rebuilding his 1949 Cadillac. They also customize a van for a disabled motocross rider so he can drive again.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me πŸ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter πŸ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
