JNC THEATER: Discovery Channel Japan to air new car restoration show

Discovery Channel Japan has announced a new car restoration show, Chihara Junior’s Car Revival Project! Hosted by comedian and TV host Chihara Junior, it will follow restorers and shops as they rebuild classic cars. Each car will have three episodes devoted to it, with a first-season run of 13 episodes. Cars in the roster are a 1970 Isuzu Bellett 1600GTR, 1969 Alfa Romeo 1750 Spider Veloce, Hakosuka Nissan Skyline GT-R, and a Mercedes-Benz 190SL. The show debuts December 14, but unfortunately there is no word of it airing in the US.

    Shows like this are why God created Netflix. Air it, dammit!

    JDM Legends: The Real McCoy.

    Would love to see this show here in the U.S. – even with subtitles.

    I completely agree with Jeff and Michael on both counts Netflix would be fine even with subtitles and it would be great to see them being restored in Japan by Japanese craftsmen.
    Bring this to the USA Discovery channel…

    WOW! So Junior is a car guy too!

    Was always funny when he made an appearance on Vs Arashi 🙂

    Will be on Motor Trend on Demand behind a paywall, where the site will crash every 30 minutes. Guarantee.

    Hmmm.. I have had MTOD since the start and have never had issues with it crashing. I watch it every day. I look forward to this showing up, even with subtitles

      I subscribed to MTOD when JDM Legends started. It generally worked well for me.

      I wasn’t impressed with how they handled LeMans coverage, or the quality of the stream for LeMans (I had technical issues with it that I hadn’t had while watching JDM Legends).

      After that I let my subscription lapse. I didn’t watch much else, and with JDM Legends currently in limbo, I didn’t feel like paying each month.

      If this show is added to the lineup (and hopefully JDM Legends gets a 2nd season) I’ll start back up…and hope for better LeMans coverage.
