Stacey David's GearZ® is a high-octane automotive program designed to appeal to the gearhead in everyone. Produced and hosted by renowned builder and designer Stacey David, the show includes vehicle make-overs and transformations, builds of trend-setting custom vehicles, and even simple tips and tricks to help the viewer squeeze a little more power and performance out of a daily driver. From wild test drives and historic features, to tools, techniques, and inside secrets you just won't see anyplace else…GEARZ fulfills Stacey's main goal…to encourage people to "get out there and build something, and then go drive the wee out of it!"
Quick... what is the most famous car movie of all time? Bullitt? Vanishing point? Gone in 60 seconds? Nice guesses, but in terms of influence and sheer popularity, Smokey and the Bandit stands above them all. Today on GEARZ! Stacey takes a look at not only the cultural impact of Smokey and the Bandit, but also its most famous character - the black Trans Am. Then it's off for a test drive of Year One's new Burt Reynolds Bandit edition Trans Am to see if it lives up to the true supercar status of the original.
The "Rat Roaster" returns and Stacey finally reveals the kind of power plant that would have made this wild deuce roadster the fastest car in the valley in 1968. And if dual carbs, a blower, and about 600 horsepower doesn't get you going, maybe the fact that he's stuffing a 5 speed manual transmission behind it will! If you've ever wondered how to plan a project out so it makes sense and then follow it through, this is the one to watch. Then Stacey digs into the Parts Bin to take a look at some of coolest products on the market to help you build your own special ride!
Stacey not only brings the "Rat Roaster" '32 back in the shop, but he also takes it under the knife as he creates a very unique Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde style exhaust system and does some custom modifications to the frame to hide it all from the casual on looker. If you are interested in taking your project and building it into something truly unique by thinking outside the box - this show will definitely encourage you to do that.
In the world of hot rodding, when gear heads gather around and start discussing their projects, invariably the conversation drifts into speculation of what the smallest thing is that you can successfully put a V8 engine in. Well today on GEARZ, Stacey pretty much puts an end to that speculation by building a V8 powered BARSTOOL!! It's part go-cart... part garden tractor... part insane... and ALL hot rod. Which of course is what GEARZ is all about! If you like WILD.. then you don't want to miss this show!
When it comes to classic hot-rod components, nothing gets people going like a multi-carb setup. And the king amount these is the Tri-power. Long admired for their stellar performance and macho attitude, the tri-power has become a hard thing to find. So why find one? Why not build your own? Today on GEARZ, Stacey walks you through the process of building your own tri-power out of old derelict parts. After that, Stacey pulls out the big Mopar guns and shows what it takes to put together a six-pack. If multi-carbs are your deal... you're gonna love this show!
This is it! The show a lot of people have been waiting for because the "Banshee" is back from paint and ready to answer the question? Does it still look like a '95 Miata? Or has Stacey shown you how to create a completely different monster? Well, all we can say is the proof is in the paint, and you are not going to believe how complete and affordable this transformation really is! Then Stacey digs into the age-old question: Is it better to restore a car original, or modify it?
Stacey pulls out the tools and starts working metal as he dives into the subject of what to do when your floors are gone... I mean literally gone... nothing there! It's not as big a problem as you may think as Stacey rolls in the "Rat Roaster" and shows you how to create solid metal floors from nothing. This show is loaded with tools and tech that will help you build anything from a small patch panel to a complete floor. While he?s at it, Stacey also covers seat selection and placement so you have a place to plant YOUR seat when you get ready to roll down the street!
What do you get when you combine Armor All, Tony Stewart, and Stacey David with an iconic vehicle like the Corvette? You get a really cool car called "Ol' Smoke" and some lucky viewer is going to own it! That's right, today Stacey takes a brand-new 'Vette and shows you how to create your own 180+ MPH Supercar for a fraction of the cost, using some aftermarket parts. How is that possible... turbos baby! And on this show Stacey shows you how to slap a PAIR of 'em on the Corvette to run the horsepower numbers to over 600!
This week, Ol' Smoke is back as Stacey finishes up the transformation of a Brand-new '08 Corvette, into a full-on super car capable of running with any Ferrari, Porsche, or Lamborghini. This week, it's a brake upgrade, along with wheels and tires, and some custom airbrushing, to not only make the car even more unique, but to also get it ready for it's new owner to enjoy.
Quick, what is the nastiest project that EVERYBODY has to do eventually? That's right, replacing old, worn out, nasty carpeting. Today, Stacey rolls the "Banshee" back into the shop and shows you how to bring a very tired interior back to life with some tips and tricks that will help in replacing those old, worn out threads with some new ones. And while we are on the subject of interiors, Stacey also digs into one of the best kept secrets in auto restoration, painting a dash and door panels.
Today on GearZ, Stacey takes a look at one of the first aftermarket parts that became available to the public back in the day. The performance air filter, and man does it have an interesting story! From the lowly beginnings of fragile paper elements, to the massive, top secret facilities of industry powers like K&N, the air filter has a heritage that was born and bred on the racetrack and there's no end in sight! Then Stacey digs into one of the neatest tools you'll ever see, and one that every metal worker should own, the Power Hammer.
Ya know, people are always asking if it is possible to get their rig on GearZ? Well, today, Stacey does just that by borrowing an '07 Jeep JK from a family and jumpstarting their project with the sole purpose of taking it to the next level. However, the real challenge is to try and build something that the WHOLE family will like, and still be able to use on the street or off-road. If you've ever sat and stared at your project and tried to figure out what the heck to do next, or what is the best thing to spend your time and money on, this show is the one to see. And who knows?
Today on GEARZ, Stacey puts the finishing touches on the '07 Jeep Wrangler with off-road bumpers, body armor, and some off -road lights, and builds a very capable off-road rig that is still civil enough to be driven every day. However, just before the Rhea family takes possession of their "new" Jeep, Stacey springs a little surprise on them. He enlists them to help him squeeze a little more performance and gas mileage out of the vehicle, just to prove that anybody can do it! On go the performance air intake, computer upgrades, synthetic oil, and even some slick new seat covers.
Looks like something went completely wrong!
