* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: What happens to the non-winning cars.


A new [[RealityTV Reality]] GameShow from the producers of ''Series/CanadasWorstDriver'', which (when you factor in the drivers themselves) could easily be considered its logical AntiThesis, since its a competition where ''good'' driving will be greatly rewarded, with $10,000 worth of accessories for their respective used car (and the ability to compete in a $50,000 tournament of champions). Its basically a MinigameGame; whoever does the worst in a particular challenge gets eliminated by having their car (well, we just ''hope'' its a stand-in like ''{{Series/Downfall}}'' did) picked up and skewered on a giant "spike of shame". Of course, the challenges get more abusive and ridiculous as the game goes on, starting with the "Hot Lap" (a time trial doing laps around a small oval), and ending with the final "Beater Buster" course.

* SoreLoser: The owner of the Toyota 4Runner in the $50,000 season finals. When it's destroyed, he whines that it means a lot to him and he'll miss it... even though if it meant that much to him, he would have taken the $10,000 in restoration.

* TheAllegedCar: Subverted; they're not quite at ''that'' level, but the point of the competition is to win money to make their vehicle into more of a CoolCar.
** If your car did not come in as an Alleged Car, it'll surely come out after the Beater Buster. If your engine dies in the middle of it, you can manually push it too!
