Ray Evernham has at least one thing in common with millions of other Americans -- he loves the rich, diverse history of U.S. automobiles. In "AmeriCarna," the NASCAR championship-winning crew chief and team owner searches barns, garages, junkyards and basements across the country, all in the pursuit of historic racing cars, classic cars, folklore and automotive artifacts.

Wayne Carini chases cars for a living. Not literally, but if a vehicle were an iconic Mercedes Gullwing or a luxurious Maserati Ghibli, for instance, and Carini saw it in motion, it's a sure bet he would get himself in gear and run after it. That's how much this man loves classic cars, a passion that Velocity has captured for this series since 2008. Known as a "collector car archaeologist," Carini leads viewers into the business of locating high-end automobiles stashed in homes, garages and barns in the U.S. and abroad.

"It's Mopar or No Car" for Mark Worman and his Graveyard Carz ghouls. They're game for any repair or restoration job, as long as it's in the Mopar mold -- a Chrysler muscle car from the late 1960s or early '70s. The series follows the progress to get the racing classics -- some left for dead in a scrap heap -- across the proverbial finish line, which to muscle car specialist Worman means nothing less than perfect restorations. After all, too much beauty exists in quality Detroit automobiles to let them go to rust.

Once complete, the restored car is taken for a test drive, and then Mike negotiates the purchase price with a new owner. The series, a British import, began airing on Discovery Channel in the U.K. in 2003. Its first 13 seasons featured master mechanic Edd China as Brewer's sidekick.
