Discovery Channel has renamed the new show featuring staff from Galpin Auto Sports, a division of Galpin Motors in North Hills.
Previously known as “Driven,” the show is now called “Car Kings” and will air at 10 p.m. local time, after “Fast & Loud,” a show featuring entrepreneur Richard Rawlings of Gas Monkey Garage, in Dallas, as he searches for derelict classic cars.
“Car Kings” follows Galpin Motors Chief Operating Officer Beau Boeckmann, custom car builder Dave Shuten and customization specialist “Mad Mike” Martin as they restore historic one-of-a-kind cars and reintroduce them back into the automotive history books.
In Monday’s episode the trio takes on a build for NASCAR star Joey Logano to bring a classic Mustang back to life. On the April 20 episode, the team restores “The Bathtub,” a vehicle originally built by Rob Reisner in the late 1960s and promoted by George Barris, the “King of the Kustomizers” whose car shop was in North Hollywood.
Galpin Auto Sports, the customization division of Galpin Motors, previously hosted two seasons of “Pimp My Ride” on MTV.
