Dan Short fell in love with cars when he first laid eyes on a 1967 Camaro. He bought a used model as a teenager, but because he couldn't pay someone else to restore it, he learned how to do the work himself. After a stint in the Army, Short decided to make his passion for classic cars his life's work, and FantomWorks was born. Today the Norfolk, Va., company is the largest auto restoration shop in the U.S., and this reality series shows how Short and his team meticulously refurbish some of America's favorite rides. Drama ensues in the form of personality clashes, cost overruns, irate customers and other issues, which are compounded by Short's reputation as a straight shooter who won't accept substandard results.
