    dose anyone watch chop shop

    dose anyone watch chop shop on discovery where they try to make scrap car into expensive cars for the stars. i wanted to know how they get away with chopping springs to lower cars. i know it is dangerous so how do they get away with it on tv. this has got to be teaching people to wrong way to do things

    Yeahh i thought that when i watched it.. they only did it once and I think they are just for looks and TV they won't be MOT'd and driven. Plus most of them are pretty ugly its just cool to watch how they do it.

    ive seen it a few times, what happens when they have modded the car, most of the time the car looks compleatly different and ive seen 1 with 3 axles, do they have to go through a sva test or anything?

    I have to admit that i liked the Ford capri / Camero look they did for that famous rugby player ( cant spell his name lol)

    I would imagine that they class the cars has kit cars and thats how they would get round it for MOT etc providing they are done properly.

    After all people in the hot rod worl have been chopping roofs and wide arches for years
