Dave Kindig Returns or New Seson of BITCHIN' RIDES, Premiering on Velocity, 10/3
Velocity's #1 series BITCHIN' RIDES is returning for an all new season of exceptionally built and designed vehicles from self-made fabricator Dave Kindig and his celebrated custom car fabrication shop Kindig It Design. Velocity's most popular series revs up season four on Tuesday, October 3 at 9 PM ET/PT with back-to-back episodes taking viewers inside the restoration of a 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 that hasn't hit the road in 60 years, and a challenge from a father and son duo who want the Kindig It team to apply their magic touch to a 2016 Hellcat and a 1973 Cuda.
When his pen hits paper Dave Kindig begins the process of creating exceptional works of art from ordinary, rusted out cars. Dave built his incredibly successful business on his own, trusting in his childhood passion for Hot Wheels, Legos and drawing to guide his one-of-a-kind automotive creations. In every episode of Velocity's BITCHIN' RIDES, viewers head inside Kindig's expansive custom car shop in Utah for a real, unfiltered look at how Dave and his team sketch, design, fabricate and assemble cars from the wheels up.
In addition to the '57 For Failane 500, this season of BITCHIN' RIDES transforms a number of different vehicles including a 1927 Shadow Rod, 1969 McLaren, 2017 Bentley, 1966 Chevelle, 1932 Roadster, 1968 Camaro and many more. The new season of BITCHIN' RIDES premieres Tuesday, October 3 at 9 PM ET/PT only on Velocity.
Upcoming Episodes (All Times ET/PT):
"New Season, New Headache" Tuesday, October 3 at 9 PM A 1957 Ford Fairlane 500, which hasn't seen the road since 1957, arrives to get back on the black top. An original FE engine, modified bumpers and some insights from Kevin will make this build one to remember.

"Mint Condition" Tuesday, October 3 at 10 PM The Fairlane build concludes, as the car is painted, assembled and upholstered.

"On the Road Again" Tuesday, October 10 at 9 PM The shop is busier than ever and in this episode Dave and Kevin take the show on the road to Loveland, CO where they hope to capture a major award for the COPPER Caddy and Mischief, a 1952 Pontiac.

"It Sounds Bitchin', Let's Make it Look Bitchin'" Tuesday, October 17 at 9 PM An old friend, in the form of a 1968 Camaro, has a new owner who wants to finish off the build with a new front valance, rear spoiler, and a new color.

"The Supernova" Tuesday, October 24 at 9 PM Sixteen years in the making Kindig It Design is finally finishing a 1967 Nova.

"The One Where Nick Gets Arrested" Tuesday, October 31 at 9 PM The guys set their sights on Pleasanton, Calif. for a major west coast car show where the competition is fierce.

"A Lincoln Legend" Tuesday, November 21 at 9 PM The 1955 Lincoln Continental project for Tad Leach and his wife continues.

"Land of 10,000 Bitchin' Rides" Tuesday, November 28 at 9 PM Kevin and Dave gear up for the biggest car show in America where once a year more than 10,000 cars descend upon St. Paul, Minn. The mission for this car show is simple, see as many cars as possible and eat as many foods on a stick as they can. Dave also runs a sweepstakes for the 1929 roadster in order to raise money for a worthy charitable organization.
"If it Was Easy, Anyone Could Do it" Tuesday, December 5 at 9 PM A 1967 Chevelle with Great Eight pedigree and high expectations is the next challenge for the metal masters of Kindig It Design.

"The Secret Client" Tuesday, January 2 at 9 PM Dave is tasked with finding a 1967 GTO to customize for a secret client from South Africa.

"Bobble-Head Ache" Tuesday, January 9 The 1967 GTO is ready for its debut, but the entire team kicks the tires on if Dave's color choice is correct. Polished panels, custom upholstery and a kick ass engine make this road warrior stand out from the rest. The GTO is ready for its secretive client and the 10,000-mile journey ahead of it. Kevin, Will and Dave finally get their own bobble heads.
