Desert Valley Auto Parts in Arizona doesn't merely sell original parts to car collectors and restoration junkies. The McClure family business certainly can do that all day long, what with more than 10,000 rust-free vehicles parked at their 100-plus acre facility. But what really gets the McClures and their crew excited is finding cars to restore themselves, and sometimes they are located right on their lot. After getting them up to speed and back on the road, they sell them at auction.

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. When he finds a gem, Carini negotiates to buy it, then resells at auction or privately. Along the way he talks shop with respected collectors, restorers and artisans.

Richard Rawlings and Aaron Kaufman deal in rusty gold. The proprietors of Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas buy, restore and resell forgotten, derelict American cars, everything from 1931 Model A cars to '73 Trans Ams. As "Fast N' Loud" shows, Rawlings is the mastermind, a deal-maker with an eye for relics worth their efforts, and to find them the guys search barns, fields and auctions across the U.S. Kaufman manages most restorations. He's a fabricator and self-taught mechanic, whose techniques and design skills first endeared him to Rawlings and kick-started the partnership. At the end of Season 12, that partnership ended when Kaufman exited Gas Monkey, leaving Rawlings as the series' sole star.

Two ideas producers seem to consistently rely on for reality TV programming are shows about refurbishing and "flipping" cars, and shows about auctions. (Oh, and don't forget to add "Wars" to the program titles ... because it's all about the battle on reality TV!) "Texas Car Wars" combines both of those plot points. It follows the risky bidding wars waged at car auctions among four auto shops in Texas, where there are more unregistered, salvaged cars than anywhere in the country. The series then reveals how the shops' employees try to turn the junkers they purchase into jackpots by fixing them up for resale.

"Auction Kings" follows the action at Gallery 63, a storied auction house in Hotlanta with a reputation for selling both bizarre and high-end items. Its owner, Paul Brown, manages his feisty staff and mingles with his customers, bidders and buyers who come from all walks of life.

Since Glenister gets to know each seller during the bargaining process, he uses stories about the car as inspiration to help inform Anstead's overhaul. After the front-to-back transformation is complete, the guys take the car for a spin. At the end of the season, the finished cars are sent to a public auction to see if all of the hard work pays off.

"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.

Street racing in the U.S. is the subject of this docu-reality series, which purportedly provides an inside look into the action both on the road and behind the scenes. In Oklahoma City, for example, racers boast having the fastest street cars in the country, and the racing, they say, comes first -- before family, before friends and before work. From a 1969 Chevy Nova to a race-ready farm truck, the vehicles -- and their drivers -- come in all shapes and sizes and have one thing in common: the need for speed.
