The contestants drive what looks like old police cruisers or taxi cabs, with roll cages. Most of the obstacles they crashed into and blew up looked like GM products, until they got to the end, where there were Japanese cars from the companies that used to be GM Affiliates. I watched them maul the crap out of a car that I have been desperately searching for a floor pan section out of. They folded that car with the cruisers.
It's like I tuned in to watch the season finale of "Burn Notice", to watch them drive what is literally my dream car (well, dream mass-produced car), a gorgeous, red, '60 Buick LeSabre Convertible, off a parking garage roof and watch it smash into the ground.
I shut the TV off and walked away after that. I'm still horrified.
Edit- I was inspired to google about the Buick. Well, I feel mildly better, the main car is unharmed and what went over the building was an engineless shell that was originally a 4-door, slathered in bondo with the doors welded shut and door handles moved backwards to look like a two door and a convertible top stretched over what remained of the original roof.
Anyhow, yeah, I hate cars getting destroyed on TV shows. Or in real life, really.
