Junkyard Wars

Show Summary

This engineering challenge started off some years ago in the UK and has now made it over to TLC. In 2001 they filmed two seasons' worth of programs with a whole series of extreme Junkyard machines being built by teams of bikers, high-tech engineers, school teachers, and even hillbillies!

  • Another good kind of war! Smart.

    9.5
    Junkyard wars is fantastic in anyways, you can sometimes even take down what they did, learn on mechanics. Somewhat smart.

    I'm watching a re-run, the episode "Off-Road-Golf," 2003. It's really holding my interest. Let me say that I'm not the typical demographic, I'm a 70 year old lady, an actress and culture/history vulture. Maybe I missed my calling because this program has grabbed my attention. So much in fact that I'm thinking of improvements to the junkyard golf machines I see cavorting on the screen. Wow, this is really fun. It's refreshing to see a few grey heads in the cast, too. This is a great new discovery for me and since I've never watched before it looks like I have a few years of re-runs to keep me entertained for a long time!moreless

    Me and all my friends enjoyed this show the only. The next day we would talk about it and what they built and were they messed up. The only thing we didnt care for was in the last season they had a set team captain and players that you picked from I think when they changed it to this they pertty much killed the show. I loved how the original from England was with teams against each other and maybe one expert. I also like the 3 different world teams against each other because it show different thinking on building things BRING IT BACK PLEASEmoreless
  • A fun show my brother and I just love to watch!

    A really fun show to watch. Two teams get about a day to build a working... something! It could be a rocket boat, a firetruck, or a torpedo, but it's always quite a supprise to see these people actually build something out of scraps they found in a junkyard. It's even more supprising that most of them actually work! This show is still on the Science Channel alot, and is actually the first place I saw it. I love to watch it for laughs and to lean some new things about engineering. I recomend this show to anyone who likes science, watching people build things, and laugh at people fighting.moreless

    BRING IT BACK!!!!



    what a shame it hasn't been on for 6 years...this show is an unbelievable classic! my 7 year old loves it and my husband was born to do this. if one of the cable channels would review this little gem and bring it back, i think that it's popularity would be suprisingly increased (think...back when it last was produced, not nearly as many people had access to dish/cable/direct tv or could dvr the show to watch over and over!)



    this one is a no brainer...grass-roots, people!!! contact TLC, discovery, science, etc. and get these cable folks to listen!!!!



    i got me a dream-team to send in!!!!!!!!!!!!moreless
  • AMERICA'S GOT CABLE

    What's the Better Channel: TLC or BBC America?

    High culture meets low culture in this week's basic cable brawl!

  • GO!, ABC2 AND 7TWO ARE ALREADY PULLING BIGGER CROWDS THAN PAY TV.

    New digital channels challenging cable

    Until recently, Pay Television has had a pretty good ride in the Australian television market.

    • Are they coming back?
      Friend of mine just saw a huge truck w/ Junkyard Wars posted on the side, going into a construction area behind where he lives...
