Plot Synopsis

DETROIT STEEL is a one-hour reality series that follows Adam Genei, founder of the Mobsteel custom-car shop outside of Detroit, and his team of automotive specialists -- including his wife Pam, right-hand-man Steve 'Steve-O' Ryan, builder Doug 'Wheatbread' Hanes, and painter Ron Coan -- as they restore vehicles from the finest relics of the American automotive boom. Though the city has had its ups and downs, Genei and his wife and co-owner, Pam, are committed to fostering American engineering and bringing back Detroit one car at a time. Like their slogan says, Mobsteel, along with Adam's sister business Detroit Steel Wheels, builds "rides to die for." From classic cars that call back to America's automotive roots to muscle cars that need a supercharged rebirth, the team is up for any challenge. Whether they are discovering hidden automotive treasures in a garage, a junkyard, or from a collector, they take full advantage of the history available in Detroit. If they can't find a part, the Mobsteel team makes it themselves. The end product is a never-before-seen creation that transforms the best of Motown into a one-of-a-kind ride that is the envy of car enthusiasts across the country. In the premiere episode, Genei is tasked with rebuilding a 1956 Oldsmobile Rocket 88 that is in rough shape, but brings back childhood memories for its owner, who worked in the Oldsmobile plant for over 35 years.
On Saturday, March 18, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, History premiered the season finale of DETROIT STEEL. In the season ender, "The Grand Opening," Adam finds the perfect car for his client -- a 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air station wagon. It's a sleeper car with a huge surprise: underneath the patina hood is a supercharged motor. Meanwhile, there's work to do as Mobsteel prepares for the grand opening of their downtown Detroit shop.
