Plot Synopsis

SHORTY'S DREAM SHOP is a one-hour docuseries that follows custom car legend Javier "Shorty" Ponce and his Texas-based crew that designs and builds ground-up classic car restorations, the series showcases the Latino community's decades-long influence on car customization in America. Whether helping revive the spirits of a sick relative or making an aging parent's wish come true, classic car aficionados from around the U.S. come to Shorty's Custom Paint in Dallas for his magic touch. From body work to engine modification to custom paint and modern suspension, Shorty and his team do it all. The program features a one-car per one-hour program format, which allows for a deep-dive into vehicle restoration. The impeccable final products are eye-popping masterpieces, and viewers at home are invited along for the ride to learn the ins-and-outs of automotive repair and restoration. In the series opener, "1966 Chevy Time Machine," Shorty and his crew are visited by a father and son from California who wish to rebuild the family's 1966 Chevrolet SS Impala Convertible -- a vehicle with extremely special meaning. The 1966 Impala was the vehicle that brought the father and mother together, the latter of whom is bravely struggling with cancer back in California. The result of the newly restored Impala from Shorty's represents both the joy of the past and hope for the future.
