Plot Synopsis

THE CAR CHASERS is a reality series that follows Jeff Allen and Perry Barndt, as they travel the nation buying cars they can flip after restoring them at Flat 12 Gallery, their auto shop in Lubbock, Texas. Jeff is the owner of Flat 12 Gallery, and, a gambler at heart, he makes his living by buying, selling and retooling classic and exotic cars. But he doesn't do it alone. Perry is the shop's artist, and during restorations, he approaches each car like it's a work of art. Technician Eric Ables breathes new life into any vehicle and can resuscitate the most hopeless engine. Meg Bailey, Jeff's fiancee of 18 years, runs the shop's day-to-day operations, and she's also a journalist, who has been featured in "Hot Rod Deluxe" magazine, writing about Flat 12's cars. Plus, Jeff's dad, Tom Souter, runs a classic-car dealership right around the corner -- sometimes they compete for the same car, but Jeff has purchased many vehicles from his father. In the past, Flat 12 has flipped a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air, 1965 Corvette Big Block, 1932 Ford Model AA, 2008 GT Tjaarda 550R, 1929 Chevrolet Model A C Coupe, 1963 Chevrolet C10, 1965 Chevrolet Impala, 1957 Studebaker Silverhawk, and many more vehicles. Each 60-minute episode of this series highlights a single vehicle, like an iconic 1981 Ferrari in Las Vegas and a 1969 Dickie Harrell Camaro 427 in a hidden compound of cars in Midland-Odessa, Texas. THE CAR CHASERS returned for its second season on Tuesday, October 22, 2013 at 10pm ET/PT, as CNBC showed back-to-back new episodes. The season opened with Flat 12 Gallery in its new location, while Jeff bought a run-of-the- mill '57 Chevy Bel Air. On Wednesday, November 5, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT on CNBC, THE CAR CHASERS returned for its 16-episode third season, with eight episodes airing in 2014 and the remainder of Season 3 schedule to debut in 2015. For the first week of Season 3, CNBC broadcast back-to-back new episodes, and showed a single new episode at 10pm each subsequent week through December 17. In the Season 3 opener, "Bigger, Better, Badder," Jeff and Meg have big plans to grow Flat 12 Gallery, and the company moves into riskier territory. Meanwhile, Jeff looks at a totally custom 1962 Impala. CNBC aired the Season 3 Winter premiere of THE CAR CHASERS on Wednesday, January 14, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT. In this new episode, "Four in the Bag," Jeff scrambles to collect four pristine family cars from the 1950s for display at a high-end resort.
On Wednesday, February 25, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT, CNBC premiered the Season 3 finale of THE CAR CHASERS. In the season ender, "Carmageddon," a classic car show, an auto-cross race and an auction all rolled into one; Jeff comes up with a risky move to sell a big, bad and fully customized military vehicle.
