New show Bad Chad Pinto build

LOL. If you have not seen Bad Chad do his Pinto Build maybe google
It cause itís kind of funny  He really needs to do his homework before he starts a build and maybe the common issues wonít be such a surprise.

He's from the middle of nowhere Nova Scotia  and likely a big fish in a little pond in that area. It is a tough call between his "making do with what he has" and doing things what the higher end of the profession would call, "the right way." As a "back woods artist" there might be something to admire. But when I hear what some of his cars cost and know that mechanically they are just odd bits and pieces I feel sorry for the owner/buyer. Anyway, it is amusing when he says, "Ceeerr."

I spoke a list of issues he was going to find and chuckled every time he ran into it. He never even looked for floor rot and was surprised when he found it. Trying to install the small block with what looked like mustang headers in the engine is laughable. They do have internet so a little research would have really saved them some silly moments on the show
