I'd have to go with real, but these guys I saw on there knew each other from a racing forum and had talked trash over that forum for a long time... I guess the producers caught wind of it and it was time to 'put up or shut up!' I thought it was fairly funny to see these losers walking home or hitching a ride with their friends!

did you see the one where the guy lost a REALLY nice GTO, full race car. That thing was freaking nice, and it lost to this somewhat ghetto model-A thing. The guy didnt seem to really care though, so he must have been loaded.(Cash)

I'm sure alot of people would race for pink slips if the show that wanted to tape it payed them off
...i don't know though, maybe they didn't get anything for being on the show or losing their car.

I Think the show was real. But the show had too many commercials and I agree it was lame.

It was another great idea for a TV show done poorly.

Quick question you have just won a race vehicle (not street legal) and the previous owner just left with his trailer...How do you get two race vehicles home?? (two trips could take days and when you return you could find your won vehicle gone)

I like the show. I think it is real. They really go at it sometimes during the negotiation part. sometimes it sucks when they get idiots on there. It all really depends on who shows up. The cars are usally chevys wich sucks. There has been only two mustangs on there.
