Also big fan of Top Gear UK and Chasing Classic Cars. I'll add one that I think is great background TV: the Mecum Car Auctions

Not on TV exactly, but the Drive channel on youtube is pretty good. Nice variety of sub-channels for different interests. Evo is nice too, although I don't care for some of the hosts.

I tried watching "God, Guns, and Automobiles" a couple times, couldn't really get into it.

I have to say, the Brits do have some of the best car shows. Top Gear UK is by far the best, but they need to make longer seasons. This 6 episode shit is getting annoying. Great adventure stories, but I love watching the banter and cool cars more often than a couple episodes of them driving in some exotic location.

Love Chasing Classic Cars too. My father pointed out one time that they show a lot of these really old guys (75+) that have all these cars that need to be built, but wont sell them. He made a comment about how these guys don't have the time or the energy to finish all the stuff they have.

Top Gear UK use to make longer seasons, but then it was only one season per year. Basically, they split up the same number of episodes to be show in two seasons each year.

I also love watching Chasing Classic Cars for all of the random cars Wayne seems to find.

I'm a lil surprised not many watch graveyard carz, those guys are more fussy about restoring cars faithfully than most car enthusiasts I know. I mean down to the correct bolt, nuts, fuses etc. And for the right productions dates.

I wish more shops were this anal and passionate about what they're doin.
case in point.

Counting Cars
Fast N' Loud
Top Gear UK
Top Gear US
West Coast Customs show (can't remember the name)
Uniqe Whips
Sons of Anarchy
re-runs of pimp my ride
american chopper

West Coast Customs/Unique Whips/Pimp My Ride do stupid stuff to cars, but it's entertaining.
American Chopper for the fabrication.
Top Gear US is ok to me because of the challenges they do. I wish they would keep more along with the UK version though. I miss when they did the track times and big star little car, etc.

Top Gear (there is no need to differentiate between UK and USA. The one aired in America isn't the real thing. It's like Virgin Cola)
