Trivia

The show didn't actually own a Volkswagen Beetle when they were ready to plan the vehicle's conversion to a Swamp Buggy. So, they rented one and used it to plan the conversion, then managed to buy a Beetle by the time the conversion was performed. See more »

Goofs

In the "American Monsters" episode, the narrator introduces the suburban mechanics by saying their Deloreans were high style in the 1970s. The Delorean didn't start production until 1981. See more »

The Monster that Jesse Built!
8 December 2003 | by WrathChldSee all my reviews

I stumbled across this show about a week or so ago. I am really interested in watching shows where people use their minds and hands to create really cool things. I like all sorts of shows like this because I am a creative person and watching other people create, motivates me. I was someone who used to watch "American Choppers" because it was so cool to see Paulie make these "masterpiece" fabricated bikes. Then I saw "Monster Garage" on a day where they were running a marathon. This show rocks and Jesse James brings an explosive edge to it. He just has a cool presence. You watch to see what he will do or say, like you watched Paul Sr. on "American Choppers".

I personally like "Monster Garage" better than "American Choppers" because it brings creativity to a higher level. You can also see different workers each time. This is a very cool show with allot of creative minds coming together and making one vehicle into another creation.

If you have a chance, check out this show that is broadcasted on the Discovery Channel.

Enjoy!
