* ''PimpMyRide'', on MTV. Rapper Xzibit and the crew at GAS (earlier, West Coast Customs) take the most trashy, beat-down cars their viewers can show them, and convert them into luxury custom machines. Gets more outrageous with each episode, usually including video and audio equipment that quintuples (at ''least'') the value of the car.
* ''TrickMyTruck'', on CMT. A countrified version of the above, revolving around the customization of semi trucks.

* ''MonsterGarage'', on Discovery. May have started the current trend, was originally centered around converting street vehicles into souped-up power equipment, that would then challenge the real-deal; i.e., converting an SUV into a trash truck. Focus began to shift as they ran low on ideas.

* SpikeTV has its weekend morning "[=PowerBlock=]" (premiers Saturday morning, reruns the following Sunday morning) which typically closely follows the more traditional setup of down to earth how-to programs. Doesn't stop the hosts from being zany, though. Oh, and the host for the programming block itself is professional driver/professional model [[MsFanservice Courtney Hanson]].
