Texas Metal is coming soon! The new custom car series is coming to Velocity, and there is a new preview of the series now available.
Velocity revealed more about the new series in a press release. Check that out below.
“Velocity rides into the heart of Texas to bring car fans inside the clever custom creations of mastermind Bill Carlton and his team in the all new series TEXAS METAL. As the owner and innovator behind Houston’s Ekstensive Metal Works, Carlton pushes his team to build the best one-off cars and trucks for people from around the country. TEXAS METAL follows their work as they make the ordinary extraordinary using everything from rusted out wrecks to top of the line vehicles including a 1955 Chevy Truck, a 2014 Porsche 911, a 1967 Lincoln Continental, a 1966 Chevrolet C10 and more. TEXAS METAL world premieres Tuesday, November 7 at 10 PM ET/PT only on Velocity.
“We’ve learned from our hit series IRON RESURRECTION that Texas isn’t just rich with oil – it’s full of innovative, skilled experts who know how to build trucks and build them big,” said Robert S. Scanlon, president of Velocity and TEN video content. “TEXAS METAL has all of those ingredients and delivers process, which is something that is extremely important to our audience. We’re excited to welcome Bill and the Ekstensive team to Velocity and can’t wait for viewers to see the incredible, detailed full-service work they do.”
Bill Carlton is a third-generation welder. His father purchased the property where Extensive Metals Works now sits 40 years ago and it’s where Bill grew up building cars including his first out of a small shop on the property. Now in that same spot in north Houston, Ekstensive cranks out wild, top-notch customizations that are the envy of car lovers everywhere.
TEXAS METAL revvs up in the series premiere featuring a brand new 2017 Ford 350 with less than 600 miles and a 2014 Porsche 911 looking for extreme customizations. In true Ekstensive fashion, Bill and his team replace original factory parts in each ride with custom fabricated bodywork and intricately welded structural for their very own custom touch. This season, TEXAS METAL also customizes a 1961 Cadillac DeVille, a 2006 Chevy Kodiak, a 1963 Grumman Delivery Truck and more amazing builds.
TEXAS METAL is produced for Velocity by Sonar Entertainment. For Sonar Entertainment, Dan Miller and Patrick Myatt is executive producers. For Velocity, Joshua C. Berkley is executive producer and Robert S. Scanlon, president of Velocity and TEN video content.”
Check out the preview for Texas Metal now. Will you watch this new series? Tell us what you think.
I cannot believe the show is being cancelled. I am a fabricator and enjoy watching seeing this type of fun.
Im sorry this is one of the worst car show to date. These guys are just as bad as Unique Rides and West Coast Customs.
MAN someone agrees with me about Unique rides, Im sorry Castro does NOTHING. Now I gave Texas Metal a chance. I do however like the idea of 100% custom suspension. That is interesting. Other than that, all the other shows are the EXACT SAME!! Nothing out of the ordinary. I think the show is better than that show “All Stars” that used to come on. Now that was the worst show ever.
I wish they would briefly say what there client does for a living , I would hope money for these builds is legitimate and clean ,
As a former customizer I know from my first hand experiances that gawdy builds are usually wanted by people that lets say dont earn their money the legal way. I have turned down many builds because of taste and morals.
I love the show. I never watch this type of show until my son told me he liked it. Texas Metal can make them look beautiful.
It is not bad. I just really like how all of the suspension is 100% custom. I think it is neat. Other than that, nothing like a frame up build.
You guys are differently from texas, probably be a good idea to cancel this show.
Watched the new show Texas Metal and really loved the work that shop does. Very clean and tasteful, yet innovative.
