Economic interest and the growing number of "supporters" of classics, guided the major international chains of television to create targeted programs for the recovery and restoration of cars and motorcycles.

Increasingly sought, the restoration of antique cars and motorcycles is an activity that requires a lot of experience on the part of highly specialized technicians (and deeply knowledgeable) that makes them such as in distant day they left the stand. The development of this activity, already moves several million euros and, of course, aroused the interest of several television channels around the world.

With the purpose of providing interesting information and comparisons between old and new models, television stations have created several programs geared to this niche market.

For lovers of vehicles from decades ago, there are information with old cars that show true legends of the roads who reshape into new forms and even become more modern. After all, no matter the year of manufacture of the car, the model and neither the state in which the vehicle was found. The important thing is to go back to the streets with the best performance.

The program Top Gear, from 2005, emerged to the worldwide success and reached an audience that has never been surpassed during the 24 years that the program had to live. This just happened when YouTube, and video streaming service became so commonplace and popular that is present in practically everything that has a screen.

It only showed that the public increasingly sees no distinction between conventional television and the internet – if it has sound and moving image it is TV, even if it is on your computer or iPhone.

The program "Rust Bucket", from Huck's Caldron, transforms rent viewers cars quite creatively, telling the story as experienced by each vehicle and its owner. In exchange for the restoration, the owner of the car just has to dress like an artist, chosen by the host, and perform a stage performance of the Cauldron.

"Inside West Coast Customs" also performs transformations on cars and, if you are a lover of cars dubs, is a must-see program. The program presents the transformations of the most different models of cars and counts with the participation of several artists.

For those who prefer vintage cars, "Crazy Cars" is one of the most suitable programs. Car Customs officials 'hunt' and restore classic models, leaving them as if they were fresh out of the factory. Some of them even earn more modern features become amazing.

"Jewels on Wheels" (Discovery Channel) is a fun British program that fell in the heart of car lovers all over the world. It's coming in to the 13th season, being an automotive reality show formed by a double: Mike Brewer, a wheel relic hunter, and the spectacular master mechanic Edd China.

The "Kings of Classic Cars" is a program about car restoration, but with a difference: they present the difficulties of restoring an old car. At the end of the program, the cars are auctioned and it is revealed the cost of each restoration.

For the crazy speed, certainly the "Fifth Gear" is the ideal program. This program is dedicated to test different models of cars in the world, especially in terms of speed.

In "Car SOS" (National Geographic) two British, Fuzz Townshend and Tim Shaw, recover rent people or families who do not have financial conditions. Created, sized, to touch the soul (disillusioned, disabled, sick, elderly, etc.), the "SOS" is one of those reality shows that rip tears from viewers, whether the like cars or not.

Finally, the "Leepu & Pitbull" (History Channel) consists of an unlikely duo formed by Steve Trimboli, a mechanic car lover and defender of animals, and the car designer and genius of bodywork Nizamuddin "Leepu" Awila, of Bangladesh, which is a remarkable transformer of scrap in components and accessorie
