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. 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. History premiered the fourth season of COUNTING CARS on Tuesday, February 24, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT. In the one-hour Season 4 premiere, "Mo' Parts Mo' Problems," Danny is doubly-blessed when a His and Hers restoration -- a 1970 Plymouth Road Runner and a 1970 Dodge Coronet -- are commissioned, but has The Count bitten off more than he can chew? When Roli hopes to become the shop's next air-brusher, Ryan and Mike have other plans for him. Danny comes across a classic '66 Stingray, but will he close the deal with Ricky Corvette?
COUNTING CARS returned for the rest of Season 4 on Tuesday, June 23, 2015 from 9-10pm ET/PT, as History premiered back-to-back new episodes. In the summer premiere (9pm), "Burning Out," Danny has big retro plans for a 1972 Cutlass he hopes to flip, and is counting on his fab team to do her right. Roli seeks the help of the guys to learn to do a burn-out. Danny checks out a 1971 Torino whose owner can't seem to put a price on it. Then, in the night's second episode (9:30pm), "Don't Tell Danny," Mike buys a Smart car and wants to trick it out at the shop, but Kevin warns that Danny hates new cars and can't find out about it until it's done. Danny and Kevin go for a spin in Kevin's new Caddy and come across a 1939 Ford. Danny's pal Shane wants to show Danny his new 1955 Chevy and a special project that will take Danny back to when he first got into cars. Later in the season, Danny takes the team deep into the world of rock 'n roll and continues to push the crew to build the baddest rides around. Count's Kustoms is hired by the family of rock & roll icon Les Paul to build a one-of-a-kind custom bike to be unveiled at a huge event commemorating the 100th anniversary of the legendary guitarist's birth. And the rock rolls on with a restoration for Dokken's George Lynch, and a Steven Tyler-themed car for one of Danny's demanding casino clients. Meanwhile Kevin lays down the law as Danny's car addiction grows and he keeps falling in love with his restorations rather than selling them -- if he doesn't flip some cars the money will soon dry up.
