    Default What is up with PowerBlockTV on SpikeTV lately?

    It looks like they recently cancelled Car and Driver TV and replaced the show with MuscleCar? Plus they replaced Danica Patrick with Courtney Hanson from Overhaulin'(no complaint there btw ).It looks like they have only build ups of cars first then build up of trucks following after.Anyway is Car and Driver gone now?The reason why I ask is that I watched that show religiously repeats and all.
    Thanks.

    I'm getting tired of choppers, trucks, and muscle cars build ups that I'll never be able to afford or do. Why cant there be a grassroots racing t.v. or something?

    Courtney Hanson is just the sloppy seconds that the Discovery Channel had leftover. The only woman that deserves to host the powerblock is Danica.

    Honestly, the only show in the powerblock that has any worth is Trucks. It's the only show that will actually teach you something....and arguably Stacy is the only host who knows WTF he is doing. Those two kids on Extreme 4x4 scare me sometimes.

    Word.

    I also love Stacy's 'fling the old stock parts across the garage' bit.

    I agree and I too was wondering if it moved somewhere else or not.

    You mean The Learning Channel? (She was on Overhaulin).

    I've always admired Stacey from TRUCKS. That guy is just amazing. Seems he can tackle anything by himself. I'd definitely have him build me a truck if I could.

    Danica likely got to big and too expensive. Let's face it. Announcing shows on Spike is peanuts compared to the endorsements she has now.

    Stacy's the man. Period.
