This is probably old news, but I just found out.
I dont know why this should bother me, but this is one of my favorite shows. They usually pick people who LOVE their particular cars till death do them part. They are passionate even though their long term projects could never get started or finished... you know the kind. There almost family heirlooms that are passed down thru a will. This is why I think the Overhaulin' folks should maybe just be doing older cars like 70's and older. Seems this gal was a different breed of car enthusiast.

Was talking with a friend the other day, he said that a lot of the people who are on that Pimp My Ride show have to sell/ebay their car afterwards because they have to pay taxes on all the crap they put in the car and cant afford to.

There is some truth to the tax part, below is a Overhaulin disclaimer:

I also authorize producer to deduct or withhold any such taxes or charges that require a payment prior to delivery of said prizes, cash or gifts.

So then the shows are all scripted?



If I had a older somewhat classic vehicle and that clown turned it into one of those hideous creations I'd sell it too.

Foose is a F A G.

Troy Trepanier (http://www.radrides.com) has forgot more about hot rods than foose will ever know, and he actually builds his own cars.

Sort of like comparing the Orange County Chopper clowns with Jesse James. When was the last time you ever saw Paula pound out a tank from a piece of sheet metal?

No ones claiming Chip Foose is the best designer ever, nor is Boyd Coddington, but they're far better then most and for some reason they have their own TV show.

I don't know about all that. Foose builds some pretty damn nice cars. If Troy Trepanqueer is so good how come he don't have his own show?

I have seen some of the stuff Foose has created from the ground up and he has WON MORE BEST IN SHOW awards, from the one SHOW they ALL claim is the most prestigious, than ANY other car builder/fabricator. If I am not mistaken it was like 8 of them and the competition ALL say Foose is the man to beat.

OR is that just more :BS: in your book?

Sorry pal but I don't agree with you. :shake:


BTW that car in your post ain't nothing special AT ALL! IMHO

I really like Jesse James but I lost ALL respect for him when he sold out the marketing end of his buisness and now you can buy WestCoastChoppers T-Shirts at your local Wal-Mart. :shake:

To me that is a SELL out. They may not pound out tanks out of a piece of sheet metal at OCC but they didn't sell out thier name for $ either.

As much as I think Jesse James builds great choppers I would opt for an OCC chopper just because they haven't sold out....... YET! :D

I think I remember that episode and iirc, the lady that got the car was a total bitch. Her husband or boyfriend was pissed that they were going to put graphics on the car, and said she would hate it.

As for selling it, I can't really blame them. The average person gets their everday car turned into something they can no longer use for everyday use, and they probably can't afford to care for it properly either. Given the choice of driving the shit out of it, letting it go to hell, or selling it at it's peak value, I can see where a lot of people would choose to sell it.

159,000 hits on OCC apparel, NOPE, no sell out there.

If you read the Tuttles (sp) biography, you'll soon discover one very startling thing.
That show was supposed to be a One off series, with a DIFFERENT BUILDER from upstae NH.
When the producers got there 2 days prior to the shoot, they discovered all this guy did was assemble aftermarket parts to create "customs".
They heard about Paul Sr., and his 2 son's, and the rest was history.

Jesse still could make kick ass bikes, just like Billy Lane, and many others.(RIP) Indian Larrry.
But why would he?
Monster Garage made him a load of cash, and he get's to sit home and bang Sandra Bullock. :drool:

For every goomba who get's on tv, there's a back yard builder making even better stuff for the love of building.

Take that orential guy who was on Biker Build-off, (not Chico, the other guy Matt I think was his name)
He made the one with the air ride suspension bike which **he HAD to sell in order to come up with enough coin to enter the next phase of build off.

**as expressed by himself in a later episode

I'm sorry Jackass but I didn't see WALMART in that list.

If you are selling your name to a marketing company for 40Million and you can find your apparel in EVERY walmart from Oxnard to Bejing then I would consider that a SELL OUT ...Maybe it's just my thinking?

They sell LICENSES to sell their products. They didn't just sell out thier marketing ALLTOGETHER ..........YET.

I like Foose, but Trepanier is also a great custom car builder. Having a television show means nothing at all.

Doubt she would have put 50k in her pocket, I bet she still owed 30K+ to the bank just for original purchase of the car.

Bought TWO OCC hat's, and a fuggen bicycle at Christmass time doing errands for family members.
Now if selling an OCC bicycle "licensed or not" ain't a sell out, then WTF is?:hmmm:

03-21-2006, 09:23 AM
I am pretty sure the OCC bikes are at Walmart FWIW.

As far as that Builder Matt Cotch, his bikes go for over $200,000 if I remember correct but he only builds like one or two a year and that is part of the price. Seems like they mentioned that on one of the Biker Build offs. I missed them saying he had to sell that air suspension bike...that thing was smoken hot.

Most those guys with their own show are sell outs one way or another so please get a room your two.

Jesse on the other hand would have no legal recourse for ANYONE that sells WCC stuff.


Jesse James SOLD his rights to marketing to a marketing company. THAT is a genuine sellout!

They (OCC) may very well sell to Wal-Mart but I am almost positive that they(OCC) control WHO sells thier stuff and grant licencing.

I guess your walmart is special cause I have seen WCC bicycles but never any OCC's?

BUT... If walmart is selling them its because they got license from OCC marketing and not some Company that they (OCC) sold off thier marketing rights to. THAT is a sell out IMHO!

They are both probably considerd sell outs in the bikers circle. Especially when you look at the fact that many of the OCC crap is on beat up old minivans with people who have no chance to afford one of their bikes. I mean hell, they even have a video game. I have a strong feeling that Jesse just said, "**** I hate this crap, I need someone to take this crappy marketing stuff for me".

not like a damn bit of it matters.

Someone on a TV show is a sellout? Who the hell cares? The guy got a once in a lifetime opportunity and he made the most of it.

Bike building shows are not going to be a fad forever. Pretty soon, white trash America will find something else to wear. The only way he could come out of this looking like an idiot would be if he didn't make his money before the 15 minutes were over.

As far as the American Chopper people, there is OCC crap on the shelves at QuikTrip too.

I wish I had a chance for armchair businessmen to call me a sellout.

They took advantage of a situation to make an ass-load of money and secure the futures of them and their families. You'd do the same and you know it.
