Plot Synopsis

COUNTING CARS follows Danny 'The Count' Koker, who frequently appeared on PAWN STARS, and his crew at Count's Kustoms, where Danny acquires, restores and customizes classic cars and motorcycles -- and then flips them for a profit. Danny walks, talks and breathes American muscle cars, vintage Harleys, tricked out trikes, and dune buggies. When he sees a ride he wants -- whether it's on display at an auto auction or parked at a roadside diner -- he will stop at nothing to acquire it, often making on-the-spot offers with cold, hard cash. Danny has a huge crew, and here are a few guys who appear on this series: 'Horny' Mike, the Fiberglass, Airbrush & Display Expert; Scott, one of the go-to Mechanics; Roli, Detailing; Kevin, the General Manager; and Big Ryan, The Michelangelo of Motor Paint. Every episode of this series tells amazing stories about the transformation of historic vehicles, including these in Season 1: turning a 1968 Mustang Fastback into Steve McQueen's ride in BULLITT; the process of salvaging the DuVall windshield of a 1931 Ford Model A Cabriolet; rebuilding a 1967 Pontiac GTO; redoing a Harley-Davidson Fat Boy; revamping a 1968 Camaro SS 350; building a custom bike for a disabled man; making over a 1960 Coupe de Ville; restoring a '70s-ear El Camino; and much more. History Channel aired a sneak-peek episode of this series on Monday, August 13, 2012 at 10:30pm ET, one day before its official series premiere on Tuesday, August 14, 2012 at 10pm ET. In Season 2, which premiered on Tuesday, April 9, 2013 at 9pm ET, Danny works on a number of projects, including: working with Ziggy Marley to restore and customize Bob Marley's last car, a 1980 Mercedes 500SL Euro; customizing a soap box derby car for a youngster; and tricking out a motorized wheelchair. COUNTING CARS returned for its third season on Tuesday, January 7, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT, as History showed back-to-back new episodes immediately following a marathon (5-9pm) of encore episodes. In the season opener, PAWN STARS' "Old Man" Harrison stopped by; meanwhile, the guys weren't in love with Roli's new special custom project. In the night's second new episode, an eccentric couple wanted to turn a 20-year-old ambulance into a ghost-hunting vehicle.

On Tuesday, July 15, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT on History, COUNTING CARS returned for its Season 3 Summer premiere with back-to-back new episodes. In the first episode back, "Heavy Metal," Danny impulsively buys a '69 Caddy and falls madly in love with her, and later rockers Judas Priest stop by to pick up a gift they had made for the band's newest member. In the night's second episode, "Power and Glory," Mark asks Danny to build a bike in memory of eight sailors who were lost while serving with him on the USS Belknap, and later Danny finds a beautiful, rare Corvette in a driveway.
