New Series: Sticker Shock on Discovery Channel

April 13th, 2018

Variety just got the scoop on a brand new series. It’s a car show, so naturally, we have to tell you about it. Sticker Shock will be premiering on Discovery Channel, Wednesday, May 2 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. We’re already excited that the preview (see link) shows a few BendPak four-post lifts. So, at the very least, they have great taste in equipment!

Stick Shock is Discovery Channel’s latest car show

Sticker Shock promises to be a car show for gearheads, auto enthusiasts and everyday television bingers alike. It’s not a mechanical breakdown or anything limited to the DIY community, so it should appeal to a wider family audience. Think Storage Wars and Pawn Stars meets the Barrett-Jackson auction. That kind of thing.

Host Dennis Pittsenbarger will be accompanied by a team of expert appraisers: Randy Carlson, Addison Brown, Nick Smith and Todd Wertman.

According to the Variety piece:

[Appraisers] will investigate the history and condition of a wide range of vehicles to determine their true value… The show will also unveil the history and memories of the cars…

Basically, Sticker Shock will feature regular folks bringing in their classic cars, presumably to get rich overnight with a high appraisal. That means the experts are going to tell them what their car is actually worth. It’ll be exciting to see a few dreams fulfilled, and just as entertaining to watch a few pie-in-the-sky hopefuls come crashing back down to earth. (That’s probably the “shock” part, right?)’

It’s also interesting that the show will bring the “memories” of the cars into play. Our best guess is that the car owners will share their stories alongside the family history of the vehicle. With all of us, important memories and feelings become associated with our cars, and it can be hard to get rid of them for that reason, even if the price is right. We’re excited to see where this goes. Plus, we’ve never seen car lifts used on an appraisal show before. Most likely, the appraisers will need to look under the car for signs of rust/damage, to check for original parts, etc. Expect to see a lot of car hoisting through the inspections.

    My very rare Ford Falcon Cayuse (one of only two made) will be featured in the 1st show of the series.

    Your BendPak Lift was used as you mentioned. I was a extremely well made and solid lift.

    I wished I would have one in my garage.

    Very excited to see the show! My 1937 Dodge D5 will be featured in Episode 5, at least that is where we taped. It was a cool experience to be able to discuss the underside of the car with the appraiser as well.

    Grant, congrats! It’s a rare thing to get a car appraised from underneath by an expert like that, especially on TV. Can’t wait to see how it all worked out.

    My 1951 Kaiser Traveler Deluxe 2 door hatchback was filmed as well.

    John, that sounds great! Any idea which episode you’ll be on? Of course, we respect that you can’t say much until the show airs.
