Counting Cars ( x 30′) – Most people in Las Vegas bet with chips. Danny “The Count” Koker bets with cars. He’s a Sin City legend with an insatiable appetite for anything on wheels. Danny acquires, restores and customizes classic cars and motorcycles – and then “flips” them for a profit.
Ever since the first Model-T rolled off the assembly line in 1908, cars have gripped the psyche. Danny is no different. He walks, talks and breathes American muscle cars, vintage Harleys, tricked out trikes, and dune buggies. When he sees a ride he wants – whether it’s on display at an auto auction or parked at a roadside diner – he will stop at nothing to acquire it, often making on-the-spot offers with cold, hard cash.
It’s not just a passion for Danny, it’s a high-stakes business. With the help of his talented team, Danny must restore, modify, customize and sell these highway gems in a hurry. The more rides he “picks,” the more pressure there is at his Las Vegas shop to move these vehicles fast to stay in the black.
Every episode is bursting at the seams with amazing stories about historic vehicles, jaw-dropping before-and-after transformations and wheeling and dealing at its absolute best. From vintage Thunderbirds to classic Corvettes and souped-up sidecar motorcycles, Danny will stop at nothing to find and flip the greatest rides of all time.
