Plot Synopsis

In each one-hour episode of this reality series, a customer with a great story, small budget and sad jalopy asks Pitbull and Leepu to transform a junker into a cool customized muscle car. These two homegrown geniuses from two different worlds work together to turn scrap into gold, experiencing highs and lows while hunting for spare parts, ingenuous fixes and inspiration. Steve 'Pitbull' Trimboli is a fast-talking master mechanic who has built his business from the ground up. Steve, who started his shop when he was 17, hates to throw things away and turns junk into gold by reusing and repairing old engines and machine parts. He earned his 'Pitbull' nickname from rescuing dogs and being very determined, representing the American dream of working hard, raising a family and being your own boss. Now, he's started a new custom car business with the world-famous Bangladeshi car designer known simply as Leepu, a colorful creative who takes junk automobiles and transforms wrecks into stunning supercars using nothing but old hammers, sheet metal and spare parts. Leepu's passion for cars began when he was a youngster growing up in Bangladesh. At the age of 16, he visited his first international motor show and was hooked for life, and his first custom car was a homemade version of a Lamborghini Countach. Since then he's built up an international following and has worked in the US and the UK. He doesn't draw or write any of his designs down, finding his inspiration in the weirdest of places and then shapes the car by hand.
On Tuesday, August 11, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT, History premiered the season finale of LEEPU & PITBULL. In the season ender, "American Chrome," Leepu and PitBull have just five weeks to turn a beat-up '91 Caprice station wagon into a custom classic to surprise a hard-working husband. It's a race to the finish line, as Leepu breaks out his hammers, grinders and a generous amount of chrome to tame this beached whale of a wagon. PitBull pushes the power envelope with his most ambitious engine swap to date -- but will an old boat motor even get this beast off the ground?
