Barry White is one of America's hottest streetcar customisers. In Wrecks to Riches, and using only original reproduction parts, Barry White has just four weeks to find a dilapidated classic car and rebuild it into an icon. For Barry it's personal - it's his reputation and his money on the block.
A 71 Plymouth Road Runner makes a great muscle car, but when it's riddled with rust the only option is to buy another and merge the two into one. So why stop there? Like Dr. Frankenstein, Barry White brings all the parts together to make a top-of-the-line GTX Plymouth with a big MOPAR Hemi engine. But MOPAR fans are fiercely protective of their brand. Will they want this monster?
When Barry finds an old '69 Camaro shell he thinks he's on to a good thing, but the wreck is cursed. It's full of hidden rust and bad repair work, which means new sheet metal. Things go from bad to worse when the supercharger doesn't fit the engine, and even the engine bay catches fire. Christine cost him $40,000, but at the auction a rival Camero goes for just $25,000. Will Christine's curse mean Barry loses his shirt?
