    I’ve caught the first two episodes of your show and have thoroughly enjoyed them. I own a 1966 Olds Starfire so I have appreciated what you have done to the 1956 Olds as well as the 1967 Olds 98. Great job! I also have an old 1934 Ford 2-Door Sedan that is a ‘barn find’. If I wasn’t such an old man and had lots of money I’d love to see it restored to the quality product you guys seem to put out. Good luck with your show and I’ll look forward to future episodes.

    Hey guys just caught your show. Detroit really needed a shop like yours. You guys are going to be big. there was a time that I was tied to the Detroit street racing scene So anything Detroit and anything Detroit steel is exciting to me. If you’re looking for show segment ideas let me know I have an idea for you. If interested I’ll give you a call. I’ll pass the word on your road runner. I sure miss my 70 roadrunner

    After watching the Road-Runner episode i can’t imagine the heart-ache your shop must feel..I know karma will deal justice and soon i hope..If everyone here bands together and watch for the car hopefully it will be returned..As a retired autoworker in Ohio i know that in history no matter where you worked in the auto industry it all leads us back to Detroit..When it comes to muscle cars Detroit owns it and will continue to own it…You have a great show and i look forward to watching each new build your shop brings us..Keep it real as so many car shows have trouble doing and we will continue to watch…i believe some of these shows think we are not smart enough to notice the fake stuff…but your show is genuine thanks.. America and Union proud

    Love the show – so far. Please stay “real” and don’t turn into one of the scripted BS shows. I have a love for the early XL cars. I have a 1963 Cadillac Series 62 and you guys give me inspiration to make it better. Thanks for all you do. Good luck finding the Road Runner.

    After seeing the news story on the Road Runner being stolen ,then watching the build episode I really was pissed ,I cant imagine how pissed your team was. It wasnt till watching the episode to see the pride you showed in that car that I really felt heartbroken for you , yeh I know its only a car and hopfully insurance will cover it, I grew up when me and my buddies all had Camaros ,Firebirds ,Vettes ,Chargers/Challengers and even one buddy had the identical Road Runner except it was the blue with the white stripe ,I know this little letter wont help you but I know the feeling having 2 pickups of mine stolen right out of my driveway and shit I live across the creek in Windsor , Good Luck guys you have a big time fan here, Cheers!

    Best damn hot rod show…PERIOD! Real Detroit steel built right. I’m so tired of watching shops build such goofy lookin’ crap. Adam and the guys have great style and take cars and trucks that you wouldn’t ordinarily think would make a great ride. I watched the “old show” and was worried that it got canned. I’m so glad they have the new show! Keep up the great work…love the show!

    That really sucks that some S**tbag had to steal a classic car that they themselves couldn’t build. I like your show and like the fact that the owner gets under the hood instead of other shows that i watch where the owner DOESN’T get his hands dirty

    Great work, really cool show. I’m a proud Detroit native transplanted to (yikes) Ohio. It’s great to see a hometown business taking off, I hope the show sticks around a while, it’s totally Nanners. Ron’s mom is a ROCKSTAR!

    LOVE the show. Great seeing Detroit and the surrounding areas you visit to find cars. I am originally from the Detroit area and now retired and living in Florida. Haven’t missed a show yet. Keep up the heart felt work!

    I applaud you guys for doing a real automotive build show ! Being from Detroit myself, congratulations for doing your share to rebuild Detroit. Also I must say Adam looks to be an inspiration to others on how to be a great father ! Keep up the great work, in the shop and on the TV show. I will be ordering a set of wheels this summer for my 71 GMC.

    I’m glad History Channel recognised your value as a show. Hope you get the road runner back . I hope the scum that took it gets a serious karma revenge. Good luck with your new shop.

    Really like your show, but you had better beef up the security at building in your new neighborhood – sorry it’s so 🙁 I do hope something turns up on it.

    Love the show! I also love the fact that you don’t swear on camera. You’re sending a great message to your viewers — normal people don’t have to swear to be effective and cool. The family atmosphere seems authentic and it’s a joy to watch you succeed.

    Best wishes and I hope you get the car back.

    Absolutely love your show.
    Please (as others have said) stay real…don’t go RealityTV like Gas Monkey or American Chopper.

    Love watching you discover & then bring life back to these Detroit classics hidden away in garages and warehouses.

    Sorry your awesome Road Runner got stolen and make sure to keep a close watch on that beautiful new pup. (welcome to the D).

Detroit is finally on the way back and that is great. Congratulations to Adam on his part in that , it is a gutsy move to take the shop downtown. Good luck on the RR and on life in general .

    Hey Mob Gang. Thanks for coming to Detroit and not run away and claim to be in Detroit. Your show is entertaing and not embarrassing to the city. I hope your program last for a long time. I’m sorry to hear about the Roadrunner. I work the streets of Detroit and the Roadrunner is high on my list to help recover. Hang in there Gang and keep up the good work.

      No word on another season yet, that is going to be up to the History Channel. Not to worry, the trailer is still on the roof. Still one of the best views of our city! Thanks for you support of Mobsteel and the Detroit Steel show.

    Hi there,
    Greeting from the UK. My son and I love the show. We can appreciate the american classics on this side of the pond too!
    Especially the Lincoln builds. We live in Coventry – known as the ‘motor’ city of England, hence we understand the heritage and the history of the automotive industry and are truly humbled by it.

    Question – do the merchandise shop deliver to the UK? Or is there a UK vendor?

    Keep up the great work…
