Tackling some of the most extraordinary car designs ever built, STREET CUSTOMS highlights the talents of car-customizing star Ryan Friedlinghaus and his unorthodox approach to managing his West Coast Customs family of artisans and technicians.
Premiering Monday, May 10 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT, Season 2 of STREET CUSTOMS showcases West Coast Customs’ original designs and the process behind the builds they’ve become famous for. This 16-part series chronicles the boundary-busting cars that epitomize the street edge, passion and craftsmanship that West Coast Customs represents – and owner Ryan Friedlinghaus demands. Each build ranges in scope from customizing modern styled street rods to chopping up $100,000 luxury vehicles.
With a notable list of Hollywood clientele, Season 2 of STREET CUSTOMS features a mix of street-edge style and unrivaled imagination beginning May 10 on Discovery HD.
West Coast Customs houses craftsmen skilled in all aspects of car building under one roof, allowing viewers to explore the drama of each build from conception to execution. Shot in dramatic High Definition, the striking STREET CUSTOMS creations have an impressive client list to match: Sylvester Stallone, Jesse James and owner of Ed Hardy clothing, Christian Audigier all stop by in Season 2.
