I was contacted by Metal Flowers Media about their soon to be show about poor car repairs. If you've ever watched "To Catch A Contractor" hosted by Adam Carolla you know the premise. If you're in the LA area and you or someone you know has had a bad car repair they may be looking for you.
In some ways it's a shame that there is a need for a show like this but unfortunately not all repair shops or mechanics are honest and/or competent. The California Bureau of Automotive Repair used to try and keep the bad guys in check but they seem to be fighting a losing battle.
If I ran an honest repair shop I'd be happy to see a show like "Catch A Car Guy"; if I were a crook I'd be worried.
