    Hi Chip I have a car that I’ve been working on for 13 years I haven’t gotten very far.I have a vision like you when I look at it but I’ve had bad luck. I had the motor re done I put 10.1 pistons big valves and hi rev valve springs European cams the mechanic that did the work messed up on lining up the cams and the valves smacked the top of the pistons it would have been better to put a 302 ford motor in it.I need your help you would have fun with my car a 1976 Alfa Romeo Al feta Gt. If you seen it you would also see a cool vision.I also think it would be cool to see a Alfa Romeo on an episode of Overhaulin. Thanks Wallace Blakely

    Hi, my dad has a 1926 Ford Model A. He has been working on it for some time now. In the past ten years he has got it running two or three times. He doesn’t have much time to work on it but he does the best he can. As of right now it doesnt run at all. Everything in from the engine to the interior is original. It would be great if you and your team could do this for him. Thanks

    My husband is a full time Pastor & he also works 40+ hours per work in corporate America. He purchased a 1972 Plymouth Satellite Sebring Plus several years ago and people have taken advantage of his kindness in his attempts to restore this car. It has been painted & there has been some engine & interior work done but I don’t think the job was done too well. If your team could assist with making his dream a reality, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Chip, My father in law bought a new 1977 ford longbox pickup and has driven it ever since. He drives it back and forth to work and is workig on it all the time. He drives semi and has hauled car parts for over 39 years for the same company. I have tried to get him to work on the body of the truck for years, I love your show and the work you folks do. He can’t afford to retire and my mother in law just became sick and they have racked up some medical bills. We live Michigan and have been hit hard by the economy. If there is a guy deserving of a “overhaulin” he is. Would love to here from you. Thanks for listening. Dave

    Sandra Paszko says:

    Hi Chip,I hope this is the right thing to do for my husband?You see he owns a 1969 Chevy C10 stepside truck.The truck is in great shape and a great ride,but it is not “FOOSED OUT” as my husband says it could be.I would really like to see my husbands truck get “FOOSED OUT” and surprise the heck out of him.I do not have any real sad story or current hardship to mention at this time ,just a husband that works hard ,treats me and others great in any way he can.We have no kids,but with our two dogs we are a happy family.My husband works hard as a custodian at Sandown North Elementary school grades k thru 3 and loves that he can make a difference in even one childs life by just doing the best he can, anyway he can in his position as custodian in that school I always hear how much they really love and appreciate “MR.ZIG”!!!So all I can say is I really love and appreciate my husband and the way he lives his life.I believe if he was picked to have his truck done,it would hit him as to how much I love him and want to see his dreams come to light for both of us to share and everyone that is a part of it now and in the future. Thank you for your show and for reading my story. Sandra Paszko

    Claudia says:

    How you doin’ Chip? My Husband Cesar has a 1978 Cheyenne Chevy Truck , He started to work on it since the day he got it, he tried making it a 4×4 but like everything its always $$ and time, It kills the motivation when you have neither!He deserves to be OVERHAULED because he’s always been a hard working husband and dad.. taking care of our four kids and myself even when he lost he’s job, always being a RESPONSIBLE PERSON . Thank God he’s working again ..but my hunn works so hard for us that I want to pay him back, with having You.. Chip and the Overhaulin team to work on my Husbands truck. :)

    CHIP! We need your help. My dad has a 1979 jeep Cherokee cheif with a posie rear end which is rare from what my dad said but he has lost interest! And I haven’t, I still want this jeep and I’m all alone with this project that can be a really cool ride. Plus I want to get a good joke on my dad when he sees the jeep missing we can tell him we sold it by accident. It will be a good kick in the head. Also this jeep would be my high school car, let me ask u something would u have a bad ass ride to show off to all of your friends, or would u want that crap Toyota that u got for a thousand and be ashamed to drive anywhere u go?
    Thanks for listening

    Sarah Schmid says:

    My husbands baby is a 1975 Triumph TR6. He bought this car right after high school in 84 and began working on it with his grandfather. In fact the thing he holds the most pride in with this car is the wood dashboard his grandfather made to replace the original one which was bad. We dated in this car and it has many many wonderful memories for both of us but as we married and began our family it got put away. My husband Josef and I didn’t have the money to put into finishing the project with putting all our time and energy into our Autistic son. My husband has dedicated 19 years to our son, helping him to become the best man he can be. Our son is now in college, after graduating with a laurette award in music and getting his Eagle Scout Award. He is going to culinary school and a well rounded functioning person because of his dad. A couple years ago my son came to me sad because he had decided to write to you to ask you to Overhaul his dads “Baby’ he was sad because he hadn’t realized that what he and his dad were watching all the time had already been discontinued. If you have time and would like to work on a British Triumph for an amazing man and his son…it would mean the world to both of them! This would be a dream come true for them both.
    Sarah – loving mom and wife.

    Hi Chip,
    My boyfriend has a 1970 chevy stepside that needs a lot of work. His mom says he has been hauling it around for about 15 yrs now. He works as a respitory therapist in the ICU ward of a Local Hospital. When he gets a stretch of he justs wants to take off and try to relax as he sees some tramatic issues most days. I alos believe that I can not help him fix his truck as he thought maybe this was something we could do together.LOL… I am trying to get my home refinanced and I need his truck either fixed or towed as soon as possible. If you could take the time to consider fixing his truck, it would be a great blessing to his life. I believe if you can not assist him, it will be one less joy he has to look forward to. Thank you for your time and conisderation. Rebecca

    Dear Chip,

    I know you get so many letters that you can’t even read them all. I’ve been trying to get through for years. My husband Richard, has a 1987 Monte Carlo Areo Coupe. I understand there are only about 3000 of them anywhere. There were not a lot made, as they were a prototype racer w/wraparound back glass. He truly Loves this car. (I think more than me) and has spent every dime he’s had on it for years. He’s worked mostly on the engine so the poor body is a mess. It needs interior work and a full body restoration (spotted rust) like you’d expect. I just can’t get him to part with it no matter what. If you decide to do a rare bird, this is it. A real early Earnhardt special! I can’t imagine he will ever be able to do all of this single handedly. ( We were hit hard in tis part of the Country by the recession) He was on his back for 2 weeks working under it on the “headers”. He is 65 yrs. old, and too old and out of shape to do this anymore, and I see his dream of his “happy car” fading. Anything you could do even though I don’t know how we’d fake the “robbery” would be the most wonderful thing that could ever happen to a Lifetime Chevrolet Lover. It’s white w/ grey interior. Let me know and i’ll send you some photos. I can’t find a way to apply.
    Thank you for your consideraton, ( I will pray) God Bless!

    My husband has a 1956 Dodge Custom Royal that he had been trying to fix up.But he hasn’t gotte very far. It is a very rare car. t is the only one like it that he has found. So he can’t find the parts he needs. I would love to get it on your show and have it overhauled. That would be very cool and h woulod never expect something like that to happen. He has tried everywhere he can think of to get te parts he needs but no luck finding them. So I figured I would try yhour show to see if you could get it on there. We really love yoru show. He watches it every chance he gets. he loves your work. He is all about cars that is all he ever talks about. He wnt to put his car in some car shows but can’t because he nees several part to getthe car on the road.

    Karen says:

    Howdy Chip,
    I believe my husband Andrew would be a good candidate for a overhaul. He got a 1971 Chevy Nova when he was 17 years old. It has a 350 motor. It has been down the quarter mile racing track quite a few times. We are very proud of it and have gotten alot of offers on it from people wanting to buy it but has alot of sentimental value. Would love to see it all shined up and body work done. Recently lost a good friend of ours (due to a motocycle hit and run accident) that holds alot of memories in there as well as my husbands and I 13 years together :-) I am a stay at home mom, so he works to provide for the family so every bit of time an money we have go toward the family right now! I think this is something much deserved! THANK YOU!

  • 29

    Hey Chip,
    I have listened to your show for a couple of years since I’m am blind. I think your are doing something great for the people. My dad has a 1970 El Camino that was his first car. He loved that car and had someone paint it that actually messed it up and took parts and replace some for others. They had the car for months before he got it back. To say the least it was a mess. He has been trying to find the time to restore it but my mom was injuryed at work and with my problem he hasn’t be able to. He met my mom in that car and it holds alot of sentimental value. He would never get rid of it and we always talk about how he would fix it up. I would love to do something for him for all he has done for us. Thank you Milo

My husband had to BUY his deceased dads truck from his ex step mom after his dad passed to keep it in the family. He also has visions of makinging his dad proud of the the truck, as all of the other applicants do! Its a 94 Chevypick up. I couldn’t tell you the rest of the details about it as that is all Greek to me! I just think it would be super fun to freek him out& doll up his baby on wheels! Thanks!

    Jerry Kenney says:

    Hi Mr Foose

    This year I picked up a 1968 mustang coupe for my wife. This was her 1st car and well I guess her 1st love. LOL all kidding aside. Over the past couple of years she has been through hell. She lost her farther and her 1st cat had to be put down. Then we got rear ended and had to purchases 2 cars in 1 week. Then one of our dogs had to have 2 surgeries in a 2 month span. Now her mom has been kind of sick and lives 60 miles away. She gives up every Saturday to dive to her moms house to take her where she needs to go, writes out all her bills and whatever else her mom needs she takes care of. My wife has not asked for much and with my limited knowledge I have made some progress with the car but it is taken more time that I would have liked. She does not ask for much and this is one thing I would like to give to her. If I do not get professional help I am afraid it may take me longer than i anticipated.

    Thanks for your time

    My name is ashley my boyfriend brandon and i have been together for 3 years . He has a ’72 ford ltd that belonged to his great grandma. He has been trying to fix it up but since we had our son in January its been hard to save up the money . He works so hard to give us everything we need. It would be so awesome if i could get you to give just this one thing that he could have just for him. To show him how much we appreciate everything he has sacrificed for us.

    Kanousha Martin says:

    Hi, Chip foose I am a desperate wife who is in dire need of getting her husbands car overhauled…. I have done the app and showed pictures…..I promised I would help him fix his prized possession a Bucik Electra 225 I have never seen a buick on the show but I know you can work a miracle with it. He has been bugging and buggin me to help him but I am the only one working and has any income because he was hurt in a truck accident he started fix it but he had spinal surgery and is now disabled and he cannot get it fixed because he cannot work. I want him to keep his car but I will never be able to help with trying to provide for our family by myself. He helps by staying at home with our two children while I work for 5 days a week for eight hours. I really appreciate him doing all he can despite his disability. I do not have to worry about my children at a daycare. I wanted to show him during our anniversay which was on Nov. 2 after paying our bills every month I don’t have anything left to buy anything extra, I really thinks he deserves this because before his accident he was making fairly decent money driving 18 wheeler flat bed trucks now he can do nothing…he is in constant pain he barely sleeps at night I feel like he is old without being on because he has to rely on pain meds to get through a 12 hour day. If he does not get it overhauled I’m afraid he is going to sell it. Everyone he helped when he was up and going has turned their back and now he looks for me to do it he has not worked in 7 yrs no one will hire him because of his condition and government support is not coming through I wholeheartedley want to help him but I can’t he gets mad and frustrated about it and asks for money telling me all the things he wants done to it and its expensive, I don’t wat him to give up his dream just yet. Please help me.

    Hi. I am writing to you so plead that you consider my husband to overhaul his truck. He is trying to dedicate it to my mother due to her having breast cancer and fighting it. She has been through a lot in the past 6 years. With my dad having prostate cancer and than her having a minor stroke, than breast cancer, than tearing her meniscus in her knee and than she had to have a heart valve replacement. She almost didn’t make it through the cancer or the valve replacel, but God was on her side and she is a survivor!! So now we want to dedicate his truck to her because she was always there when we needed her even when she didn’t feel the best. The problem is we don’t have the funds to do it for her because I am the only one working and he has been unemployed for the past two years because he has one eye and isn’t able to work right now. This is a gift I would love to provide not only for my husband so he can show how thankful we are for my mom, but also show my mom she is appreciated and reward her with a reminder for the strength she has showed us anyone is capable of having. This would mean the world to us and our family!! So please consider us. I know being in SW KS may be far, but would greatly be appreciative of being the chosen one!! God Bless!!

    Hi Chip, I had got a 1988 ford mustang hatch back for my son Austin when he was 14 with the plan to totally redo it for hi so he could drive it when he was 16. Well he is now 21 and in boot camp at Ft. Jackson, S.C. and the car is still in pieces. He is so deserving of this. I can’t say enough about him. He played football in school and he went to vocational school at Eastland Carrer Center up by Columbus, Ohio. He took Criminal Justice with Mr. Wallace. His mother and I divorced back in 1998 and I was awarded custodial parent of our children. Well he has a sister Victoria (19) and then I remarried and he loves my wife Amy and his two other sisters Samantha (8) and Brooke (2) all most (3).The divorce was rough on him and then my wifes Dad did November of 2004 and then His best friend Jake died 12/18/2006 and then his friend Josh died in July 2010 and then my Dad Died 12/11/10 from cancer. I was in a car accident back in 2004 and I have been limited to not being able to work on it for any length of time. His Grandpa my Dad died 2 years ago today on 12/11/10. Austin really looked up to my Dad alot and I don’t feel he ever got over his death. We also farm a little raising herford cattle with six cows. Austin always helped in any way he could. He is a great young man and I wish I could give him what he really deserses. When we got the car it had a 4 cyl. engine and we also got an extra 4 cyl. and standard transmission. I had went to vocational school and then college at North Western business college in Lima Ohio for auto Diesel mechanics associates degree and was two classes short because I got very sick and came home. the classes I missed was a/c and heating and welding. So I felt that him and I could restore it but I have fell short and let down my son. If you could help me out I would donate a cow for what ever you wanted. For your freezer or a beef roast or even donate to a food bank. He has had alot of trials in his life and he deserves to have something great happen. He was going to college to be in law enforcment but it got to expensive so he enlisted in the Army to serve his country. He always wants to help others and keep them safe. I would be so greatful. Thank you for reading this and concidering him for the show.
    Thanks from a loving Dad

So I got her a 64 falcon 4dr and took it all the way down as far as you can go and re built it like show room for her and mom’s car is still on the back burner with out a word from her about her car. I lost my job and lost are home and shop, then I had to go on the road for work and still stands by me. I got a job back in town in 29 palms marine cops base.
    I am a mechanic out there. I started out there in Dec-09 and in April-10 I was in a accident, I was hit on the way home from work to take the family to a monster truck show we missed. I was in the hospital for 7 days with 5 broken ribs punctured lung and spleen and shattered shoulder blade she never lift my side and I was out of work for 2 mouths, and still no word about her car getting done. Then I buy my 65 fury and still nothen from her. she is a one of a kind and I would love to have this done for her and by you and your crew would be the icing on the cake. she just lost her my 3 days after Thanksgiving 11-12 I would love to do this for her.

    Will Morris says:

    Mr. Foose,

    Hello my name is Will and stationed in Stuttgart, Germany. I lived in Yoder, Colorado where I met my wife for about six years. Ashleys grandparents live there and Roger, my grandfather in law, a Vietnam War Veteran and Army retiree and Honeywell Retiree has a 1968 Camero. When I was there Roger did everything he could to support everything we did from taking in his granddaughter Ashley, and grandson Joseph. Roger is a very family dedicated man and wont say no to anyone. He always put others needs before his own desires. We did our best to start on the project and he even went to the trouble of taking the engine out of the Camero to put it into a truck so that I had something to drive. Rogers health has since diminished and can no longer work on the car. Roger loves his car and now unable to work or work on the car itself. I fear he will never see it run ever again. I have recently just restored my 68 Ford Mustang Coup and there is that long standing rivalry between the two cars and it is a nice thing we can talk to each other in a semi civilized manner when it comes to the two cars. I would really like to be able to go cruisen side by side Mustang and Camero on the road together. This would be a blessing to Roger and his health as he has no hobbies to keep him busy. Mr. Foose our family needs your help getting Rogers dream back on the road. We would greatly appreciate your help. It would be one small way I could pay Roger back for everything he has done for my family and would be willing to help in any way possible. I even have a group of old men that would be more than will to help with the rebuild.

    My husband has 1993 150 ford truck and its old and need overhaul.He works hard and seems to never have enough money to take care of his needs.He beleives taking care of the house bills first.We was watching your show and if you could see the smile on his face and he just couldn’t believe that ther are people who helps others. He had a savings account years ago but his brother used his drivers licenses and it cost him all of his savings to take care of court cost to prove his brother had stolen his license number and caused a lot of issues.But you know that was great after going through all of that when his brother died this year he helped scrape up money to bury him. He said he truly forgive him and it was the past.So he has had people to use him and never gets nothing back but he still has a heart to help others.I’m
    his wife and I have tried to get him to sale the truck to the juck yard for parts and later when we are more finicial stable we will get another truck for him later in the future, but he want because he loves his truck, but I think its just a gas gungler and junck.He came in my life and I have never meet an man who would give you his last .It just would make his day to walk out the house and see that ruck looking new again.It just make me feel said inside when I listen to him talk and think good things never happens to people him.He always tell me that he always remind himself how did I COME INTO HIS LIFE AND THE REASON WHY HE THINKS NO ONE CARES.hE IS A TRUCK DRIVER BUT THE WORK HAS GOTTEN SLOW DO TO THE ECONEMY AND HE JUST DONT HAVE THE MONEY TO RESTORE IT.It runs but he only uses it to go get his truck about 5 mins from the house. Ijust want you to consder him for an over haul .I WANT HIM TO DREAM AGAIN AND KNOW THERE ARE GOOD PEOPLE LEFT IN THE WORLD.He loves his truck but its shoot. If you could find it in your heart to consider him you just don’t know what this would do, I think he would literally cry. If you could have seen his face when looking at your show, he loves your show.

    Garrett Myers says:

    Hi chip. My name is Garrett Myers, im 14 yrs old. My dad has a 1969 ford cougar, him and my step brother put alot of work into the interior and he had it garaged. When he got divorced with his wife my step brother and my dads ex wife went to Florida. Then he married my mom and when my my brother was born and got old enough he started working on it with him. On his 16 birthday he gave the car to my brother in hopes he would fix it up. My brother just didn’t have time for it and now it just sits in the front yard. It has been sitting in the front yard for years and years now and it just kills my dad to see it rust there when he put so much work into it. He is thinking about getting rid of it and scrapping it and i don’t want to see him throw his dream down the toilet. If you are interested on working on it i would really appreciate it. I would love to surprise my dad
    Thank you.

    Brandi Miles says:

    Hey Chip my name is Brandi, my friend Eric has 1993 ford thunderbird that was his first car and now the car has been sitting for about five years and has multiple problems that he cannot afford to fix. He is 25 and has four step kids and his wife is desperately trying to make it in the art business but just got started so currently he is the only one supporting the family and is very strapped for money big time and has been talking for two years about fixing his car to where he can drive it again. There family hardly ever catches a break and this would be a break that he would remember forever. Everyone keeps telling him he should scrap it or sale it but it would crush him to see his car get used for parts. If you could please help my friend out.
    Thanks

    Hey chip. I need your help. My husband has his truck chevy c1500 year 89. He been Working on it befor we got together. He is going for his disability for his back and it makes it hard for him to do anything. He would help anyone out and a man asked him if he could help him get his tools and equipment back from NJ where he had ben working after the hurricane that hit in 2012. On the way back pulling a trailer borrowed from a near by church loaded and the back of the truck the motor went. Nearly two months later saving every thing we could since we spent everything we had saved for christmas for our five kids. He payed 350.00 for a good running motor. So the man said he allso said he garenteed it to be a good motor. When it turned out it wasnt after a total of six days in 20° weather, from sun up to sun down then the ride home on his motorcycle for like 25-30miles each way. He called the man and told him about it and the man wouldnt make it right. And now it just seems as if the bills are pileing up and there is no light at the end of the tunnel. Can you consider us for your show. Thank you.

    Joe Schappell says:

    I see you have a lot of fans wanting their vehicles on your show. I know my chances are slim to none to have a reply to my email/have my vehicle on the show as is the same for everyone else asking for the same thing. Here is my pitch for my 1988 Chevy Silverado extended cab longbed 1/2 ton pickup. I got it cheap. After driving it for awhile I am seeing why, something breaks on it. I replace/fix the problem, and no that I get that done something else goes wrong with it. Seems like every 3 to 4 months I’m having to fix something on it. At this rate I’ll never get it where I’m seeing after it’s done. Because of all this I felt applying here might have a happier ending. Thanks…..One of many biggest fans

    Chip….HUGE fan. Have recorded and watched all original episodes and was excited to hear OverHaulin’ and the A-team were back. I sent an application about my son’s ’70 Maverick just after your show went off the air back in June of ’09. He searched for and bought a Mav after borrowing one of my friends Grabber for his senior prom back in ’07. He wasn’t able to spend much since time or $$ then due to college (graduated last year) and is planning a wedding for July. I’d love to bring his car to you, or invite your team to come see us in Charlotte, to work with NASCAR partners like Mr. Rousch, Michael Waltrip or Robby Gordon from past shows !! I’ll submit another app on line and hope to hear from you soon, as my son is a very giving deserving young man…..I’d do anything to make his dream come true.

    Sonja says:

    Hello Chip,
    My husband and I always watch your show when it was on TLC and enjoyed. He doesn’t know I’m doing this but I wish I could bless him with one of your overhauls. He has a 1970 Ford Torino GT that his brother gave him when he was 17 and he still has it. He was in the middle of restoring it but his father got sick and what funds he had he sit them aside for helping his dad. His father is now deceased and I wish I could get you to help him with this overhaul. From his notes on his car it has a 351 Clevland with a shaker hood. A eight inch rear end with a Fordmatic 4 speed transmission. I hope you can help and if not I understand. Thanks for reading my request.

    Hello Chip, I am writing in behalf of my husband, Gerald G. Wray. He has been restoring a 1964 Galaxie 500 XL 390 4 speed car. With all his health issues, heart by- pass, 3 stints, copd, atrial flutter, sleep apnea,diabtes, and he is 100 % disabled from Vietnam, his disability is on PTSD. He is unable to finish his dream car. We live in Kingston, Oklahoma, and would be willing to bring the car to you if you decided to use this car as a project for your upcoming show. He is 71 years old and is simply unable to finish it. His goal is to see it finished so he can do the Crusin the Coast show once before he is gone. We also have a 1959 Ford Thunderbird that he bought for me to restore and it has been sitting in the garage for 5 years. I am willing to donate the Thunderbird to you to restore and sell and have the money go to wounded warriors or any other veteran related organization.

    Hello overhaulin. My name is brian Whitcraft and i am writing your show to help my father Howard. He has an 88 chevrolet silverado that has been sitting for quite some time he bought it about twenty years ago and has never really been able to drive it. he is the best dad and friend. not long after he bought it it was totaled by deer. after we fixed it my older brother needed a vehichle to drive to work so my father let him drive it and it was wrecked again. we had it completely rebuilt and painted then i needed a car so once again he let me drive it and i totaled it for the third time. and we have had so much time and money invested in it that he doesnt have the time or money to rebuild it again. he works anywhere from 50 to 80 hours a week and on the weekends he doesnt even have a vehichle to go have fun or even drive and as much as he has done for me and the rest of my family he deserves it more than any other person that i know of. if you could atleast consider my father for your next overhauling program i know that he would be so gracious for the rest of his life cause knowbody has ever done anything for him. thank you for your time

    maryanne hyland says:

    My husband Richard has a 1977 F250 Ford pickup, that he has owned and shown for over 20 years. But ever since 9/11, my husband, a firefighter who was in Manhatten at the time; he has lost interest in it and has not touched it since. The day plauges him every single hour, and he has lost many a friend and colleuge. It is my wish, because i know it would bring him the utmost joy, that his truck can be featured on your show in a 9/11 memorial theme. I think that if his truck is overhauled, he would enjoy showing it off with our young son at the many events he used to go to.

    My dad has a 1967 mustang that has been sitting in his garage, since i was born. That was 23 years ago. I think it would be awesome if it could be restored, as he was, and still is my role model. Growing up, i wanted to be a fireman just like him, and i have. I even went a step further, and joined the marines, having served in iraq. He says he will restore it one day, but he doesnt have the time. I have 4 siblings, and two are still at home, the youngest is 13.

    Hello my name is Tiffany and my husband has a 1972 thunderbird that he has been trying to restore for years. But because he puts everyone else needs before his own he hasn’t been able to. Getting you all to overhaul his car would be a blessing considering that it was in mint condition other than a little body work and the motor when it was stolen a few months ago. We found it a a chop shop. So it needs a lot more work done now. He doesn’t ask for much, if you all could make this happen it would be awesome. God bless!

    Greetings from Texas! I would like to nominate my husband and his ’63 Ford Futura Convertible to be overhauled on your show. He keeps on planning on doing a complete restoration (black lowered, offset big wheels and a 302 under the hood – he spoke out loud in his sleep) but due to economic constraints and set backs he is unable to commence. He is watching your show at this very moment and doesn’t have a clue of what I’m up to! He is a very giving person and never thinks of his needs. This would be a great gift to an ex-Army grunt that works hard all day to keep me and my six year old daughter happy. Thanks for all you do Chip and team of auto artists!

    Dan Thiesfeld says:

    Hi Chip’ I have A awsome brother-in- law that a few years ago got into a really bad wreck and injured his shoulder he was out of work for a long time and he never let it slow him down he has an 1968 mercury monteego that he has had in his storage unit for the past few years hes had this car since he was a young boy he has put it together had taken it apart before he just to busy working and trying to make ends meet to put it back together again he’s always think of others before himself. He is very deserving of being overhauled and also would be one of the most apreaciative overhauled persons to date he is an awsome car guy and has a lot of ideas for this car. he’s even thought of selling it. wich would be a shame since he has had it so long a has the skills to put it back toghether just not the time and money. thanks for reading and hope you choose him to be overhualed thanks Dan in union Oregon

    Jenna Goodchild says:

    Dear overhaulin’ dudes, My new fiance (Daniel McCall)and I are just about to graduate high school (yes we are a little young to be engaged haha), But this boy is the most car crazy kid iv’e ever met. I knew just about absolutely nothing of cars or how to fix one, until I fell for Dan. He has a rare 1970 cloned into a 1969 DODGE CHARGER, He claims to have allot of the parts in his garage, so I don’t think it would/ should be to much work finding parts. He got this car/ his dream car, when he was 12 years old. It was supposed to be a father son bonding project but like the usual economy will change that. Dan is very much interested in keeping it classy and original. Just about everyday i hear about how much he loves his car and how bad it deserves to be restored.
    If I had to classify Dan, he would be the guy to always put others before himself .. he is so encouraging and generousness it would be a shame for him to loose out on an amazing and once in a life time opportunity like this.
    Dan’s friends …. tease him all the time about being a charger lover and not being able to restore his beauty. I think it would be very entertaining and great revenge to surprise his friends with a 450 big block, vinyl roof, black interior and high back bucket seats.
    Dan also had a 1973 dodge charger, but was recently sold because he couldn’t maintain the constant needs of that old rust bucket. Seeing his face as he watched the new buyers take his baby, I could see broke his heart. Since that day he hasn’t stop talking about starting to restore the 1969 charger.
    In out future i plan to be a radiologist tech and he wants to be an auto body engineer and a possible welder. We were hopping to get married in the next two years, and how cool would that be to drive off in his fully restored 1969 powerful dodge charger!
    This would be a great wedding present or an amazing/ bad a$$ graduation gift. Iv’e seen your show plenty of times; Thanks to Dan, and you guys do mind blowing restorations! Please give this boy his dream car.i can guarantee you he will fall on his knees and cry his eyes out *I’m actually willing to make a bet with you chip*.
    Oh, and since surprises are the best kind of presents, I was hoping we could do this as a secret!
    !!!Looking forward to see the lucky winner!!! but please don’t over look my application! it would mean the world and more to me and Daniel.

    Alicia Maciel says:

    Hi Chip my name is Alicia and I am writing to you to see if you could help me. My oldest son Daniel offered to buy our 1970 mustang when he was nine years old. My husband had no idea my son had been saving money for this car so my husband told him he could have the car for $30.00. When my son heard the amount he ran to his room and brought out the money. It was always a dream of his to get the car totally overhauled. He has tried to work on it to get it going without success he is in the Coast Guard and he has a wife and two small boys with all the expenses that come along with that needless to say the car has been sitting in his garage. I would like to surprise him and have the car overhauled for him. A little back ground he is the eldest of five sons four of them serving in the military and the youngest attending the University of Hawaii. Please consider my application. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Chip… Watched Overhaulin and loved the 1967 Mucstan convertable. Great that the guy thought his car was being used in a movie. Would love if you could help me by Overhaulin my husbands 73 Avanti. The car has been partially restored but retirement and helping our son does not leave a lot for “discretionary” spending. This car is his pride and joy and it has taken him a long time to get it put together and running, but it really needs some work. to get it into top shape. It is one of 125 built. and has the origingal drive train. He is a great guy and to be able to have his car chosen would mean the world to both of us.

    Dear Overhaul’n
    Eight and a half years ago my father bought my oldest son a 1978 chevrelet pickup. two months later he was killed in an auto accident. My youngest son, now 22, still has the truck. In readonable shape but runs pretty well since putting in a new motor last fall. He dreams of restoring the truck in a fashion that the older brother dreamed. The biggest problem for you and your team would be coming to Alaska to do the work. We live near the Kenai river, 2 miles away, and the salmon run like crazy in July. Perhaps you could make it an adventure. We would certainly make sure your team got plenty of river time if you like to fish. There is also clamming and ocean fishing and gold panning for your enjoyment. Would love to fulfill my sons’ dream and maybe provide an adventure/vacation for you and nyour team.
    Thankyou for your consideration ,

    Nicole Arens says:

    Dear Overhaulin,
    Hello My name is Nicole Arens. My father Jerry Arens, I don’t know anyone that works harder for anyone besides himself. If you need anyone you can call on him. He helps everyone, we live in South Dakota where snow is very common, he puts his snow blower in his 1992 Chevy Silverado and takes it everywhere to help everyone when they are snowed into their driveways. He really needs it fixed up because he helps everyone with that truck. He has helped me move every time that I’ve ever needed his help. He lives with my grandmother, his mom, and helps her and his uncle who lives there also out. If you can help him with fixing his truck out, its rusty and he really needs it fixed up so that he can continue to help people out everytime they need it. Please think about this. Thank you very much.

    To Chip Foose and the AWESOME Overhaulin gang:
    I need your help.
    My husband has a 1955 Chevy Pickup Truck that he restored about 25 years ago. He rebuilt the truck to make it a street legal race truck.
    He loves his truck but because it has been so long since he did the original restoration, it desperately needs your overhaulin expertise.
    One challenge he has had since the very beginning is installing a windshield. During the restoration, he chopped the top several inches. Because of this, he has been unable to install a windshield without cracking. At last count, it was 15 installed and 15 broken windshields.
    About 2 years ago, he put the truck away for the winter. During that winter, he caught a virus that affected his lungs. After 2 years, several hospital stays and many doctor visits he is finally feeling better. However, unfortunately at 74 years old he does not have the energy or funds needed to do the restoration again. The 55 needs a lot of work.
    My husband has always been and still is THE person family, friends and even strangers go to for help and advice to repair their vehicles, lawn mowers, generators etc. He does the repairs when he can, out of the kindness of his heart. He enjoys helping others and the challenge and satisfaction of finding and fixing whatever was wrong.
    He watches and loves your show. Please consider his truck for overhaulin. It would make him so happy (I think he would even cry!) to see his 1955 Chevy Truck bright, shiny and whole again.

    Dear Chip

    I met my fiancé about 9 years ago and we met at work. I was wait at the roach coah with my brother and I heard this rumble and out came a 69 Camaro with a blonde inside and that is that. Over time we ended up together and found out she has love Camaro’s her whole life. Her x took the one I saw her first in but it was a bondo bucket that he trashed by working on it. Here is the good part her mother order her a 1971 Camaro in San Fernando and drove it for years. Unfortantly her mothers life was cut short so her Grandmother took over the car and drove it til 2009 where she was 91 yrs old. She got hit making a left turn on Hubbard and ended up being ok but her license was taken from her and it wasn’t her fault just age she pasted a couple years later so the is a one family true car and we have it but don’t have the time and tools to do it right. This car put back together would make her world representing her childhood, past present and future. She deserve something like this . A Girl Scout leader for 18 yrs always giving to others. Shuold be her turn now!!. Thanks

    Dear Chip,

    I tried to submit an application on Overhaulin.com but it wasn’t coming up. Anyway, my father is has a few antique cars. One in particular he would like to have restored is a 1960 T-Bird. He 67 years old and has lung cancer. So I think since the car has been restored some already when he purchased it, he is the interior is good but the engine is runs ok has 63k. If it could be restored close to original that would make him feel great while going through Chemo.

    Laura Valdez says:

    Many years ago my husband Max started restoring his 1967 Chevy pick up. It’s a US Arsenal truck and he’s put a lot of time and effort into it. He’s done the exterior but the paint job was not the best for what we paid and the interior is still waiting due to financial issues. Now at 64, his “Maintain” sits waiting for him to finish her up. He’s gone back to work to try and save the money to finish her but I would love to see Maintain finished by his 65th birthday in February 2014.

    Darlena Pike says:

    Dear Chip,
    My husband Richard has a 65 Mustang which he bought about 10 years ago to refurbish. His dream since he was a teen was to own a ’65 Mustang fast back (couldn’t get a fast back but a regular one). He started working on it but because of our financial situation had to be put on hold. I even bought him the “pony interior” about 6 years ago for our anniversary which he had installed. He even put his ‘dream’ aside allow me to realize my dream to go to medical school. After I finished and started in my nurse practitioner practice and making money so we could afford for him to resume fixing the car, Richard was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in Dec. of 2012 and has gone through treatments and recently surgery (May 2, 2013). His still has the dream to get the car fixed up and to be able to drive it in our Back to the 50′s cruise we have every summer at the end of July. I realize that it is probably too soon for this year, but maybe next. During this time we also lost our only son to a drunk driver(pedestrian vs car) in March 2013. It has been a very stressful and basically horrific year for us and I know that getting his car done would be a small consulation but huge for him. He is a very strong man with a huge heart who would give of himself to anyone who needed it. He is yet to totally BEAT this cancer and may have to go through another round of chemotherapy. To have his dream car done would be a tremendous boost to him. Besides, he LOVES watching OverHaulin. In fact, as I write this he is resting and getting his tube feeding watching you restore a Malibu (I think) on the Velocity channel. I don’t know if it is a problem or not but we live in Grants Pass, Oregon.
    Thank you so much just for reading my email and possibly considering helping my husband of 33 years to realize his dream.

    Dear Chip, My husband watches your show all the time, so I would if you could come to Washington and overhaul his old red jeep, he works 10 hour days 5 days a week, he has no time to fix it up and would love to surprise him with a total overhaul, it is his work jeep so he has a dream for it and I would love to see it come true, we will be married 30 years this June and what a surprise that would be for him. He is watching you right now overhaul a comet for a young girl. Thank you for your considering this wonderful surprise and dream come true. Thank you Chip for your consideration.

    I have a friend who has a 1957 Chevy Bel Air that he has had since the late 70′s. It has gone through many motors, eventually ended up slightly wrecked and on jack stands in his garage. I believe it would make a really great episode for Overhaulin, he’s very deserving of the work and would be so surprised if it happened.

    hey Chip, do not know if you remember me, but i may be the only guy ever to give up your spot at the grand national show to someone else. john and i managede to find a good spot for you and hope that made up for my mistake. i would like to submit my brothers car for consideration to be on your show. its a 29 ford 2dr sedan that he recently purchased, shortly before learning that he had be diagnosed with cancer in his arm. the car is in a state of needing to be completed and at the moment he cannot work on it because of his surgery. he is a former marine and has worked on cars and trucks his entire life. always ready to help others, never asking anything for himself, if i could i would just hire the work to be done for him, but i am unable to do that now. if i could surprise him with his car being on your show it would be just the greatest. car is in chino, ca. i have pic’s, just need to know how to get them to you. a possible excuse for you to see the car is that he had to give up riding his harley for his health and it is for sale. you could come to look at the bike and see his car at the same time. all the best to you and your crew. hope to see you at the next gnrs
    thanks, tom thibodeaux

    Dear Overhaulin,
    My dad is 70 years old this year. He has been trying to restore a 1966 El Camino with a 396 4speed.He is always busy doing something for my mom, sisters and myself. He bought the El Camino from a guy who was in the military. It came from California and it sat in a field for 20 years. My dad never goes anywhere. He is always working.But he doesn’t have the time to finish the car. His sons were both killed in car accidents so he has no sons to help him. Please help him to make this car what it used to be in it’s day! He would be so overcome with happiness! He could feel like a teenager again cruising the strip! Thank you so much!

    Janice Brown says:

    Dear Fose,
    I’m writing this letter because my husband of 50 years has his little 52 hardtop Chevy since high school and it has been his dream to get it fixed up. That was the only car we owned for many years and he was very peticular with it.
    As the years went by it got put on the back burner as he served others. He served in the Air Force as a helicopter pilot for twenty years. He served a remote tour in Viet-Nam for a year in helicopter rescue, and then other short term stents. When we finally retired in 1983 he thought he would have time to fix his car that we had hauled all over the country, but again he has spent his time serving as a Board Member at the christian school and elder in the church. Time has never permitted Jerry to seek out his own desires for his car. After becoming a fan of your TV show he has gotten all excited about how he might be able to get the car back in the shape he would like to have it in. So that is why Iam writing. He just had back surgery, fusing his L-3,4 ,and 5. vertabraes and I don’t see how he is going to be able to do the lifting etc. that it would require. His little 52 Chevy sits in the corner of our barn and I would love to see it back in running order for our 50th wedding Anniversary,(August 18, 2013) He has been such a faithful, loving husband and father of our four children and 15 grandchildren. He always put us first and neglects to serve himself. It would bless my heart and his if you could help him fix his car. Thank you. jan

    debra larrieu says:

    Hey Chip

    I am married to the man of my dreams, I am tearing up as I type this because I want to give him the word yet I cant. His name is John and he is a giver, never asking anything in return. He is a mechanic yet never seems to have time to do his own car because he is ALWAYS working on his friends and families cars. He has a car that he calls the car of his dreams in our garage and I’d love to see him be able to drive it instead of just look at it and wish. He spends hours late at night surfing the net just wishing for parts and design ideas, it breaks my heart. We both work really hard yet there just never seems to be enough left over to get him in his car. He has truly hung the moon in my eyes, please help me get his car on the road so he can drive it in the moonlight.

    Thank you so much

    Hi Mr. Foose,
    My name is Teresa. My husband Marvin is the most wonderful man. Anyone that meets him can’t help but to love him. The past two years have been difficult in anyone’s eyes. His brother Larry has overcome leukemia, his mother died and he survived brain surgery for a non-cancerous, thank GOD, brain tumor. He has a gold trans am 1985 that he would love to have restored. It has 27,000 miles on it and has been sitting in the garage for approx. 5 years. He has seen every episode of your show and watches it over and over. Both him and I were particularly touched that you had a sister with progeria. I am a hospice nurse and am sensitive to such things. It would be so amazing if he were overhauled. I don’t expect that it will ever happen but of all the people I’ve seen overhauled on your show there is no doubt in my mind that my husband could easily be a perfect candidate. Thanks for your time.

    Anita R. Ledford says:

    Mr. Foose, My family and I Have enjoyed your show and your expertise with car restoration for years. My husband collects classic muscle cars and has for years. He has a 72′Pontiac Grand Prix, a 75′Pontiac Trans Am, a 79′ Pontiac Trans Am Silver Anniversary,a 87′Chevrolet Camaro,and 99′ Dodge Truck. We also have a 07′Corvette and a 04′Ford Truck. My husband promised my son 2 years ago he could have the Camaro{its blue, his favorite color} but then this year in February, I found out my husband was having a 3 year affair with a woman 10 years younger then me. He left us and took everything. He filed for divorce and lied about his income[we own a lucrative pool business called Wimberley Pool Company in Wimberley,Texas] I’ve been a housewife for 20 years and didn’t get a very good lawyer. He got the business, all the cars and guns and I have to sell our house in 3 years and split the money with him. I was able to get the 87′ Camaro for my oldest son but it doesn’t run good and the rear hatch leaks because my husband smashed it in. We found a replacement hatch and my son worked hard to put it on but it still leaks. I’m looking for work and we’ve replaced the starter, the distributor cap, the computer,and the plugs and wires. It still doesn’t run right. I was going to sign it over to my son on February 11 2014. Its his 18th birthday. Please help me fix his dream car for him. It would show him that there are good people out there and real men he can look up to. My husband is trying to get me to sign the car back over to him so I can get a cheap truck but I’d rather give my son the car he was promised cause I think its cruel to break your promise to your own child cause your new girlfriend hates him.

    Dear Chip,
    My husband and I have been married 17 years….we love your show. My husband Rocky is just a regular hardworking guy who has taken me and my two kids and loved us unconditionally. My Dad gave him a 1969 Ford truck, and I dream for him to be able to fix it up, that just never has come to reality. He never asks for anything…but gives our family everything he can. We have Grandkids now…they call him Bop… :) Could you please find it in your heart to help out one the kindest, hardworking guy I have ever known. He never complains about getting older and not having really anything to show for his hard work…but if he could be Overhauled….it would be a dream come true….thank you for your time and thank you for what you do Mr. Chip Foose :)

    Dear Chip, My husband is a big fan of your show recently my grandpa passed away from cancer but before he died he helped my husband by an old pickup truck which he loves very much but the thing is falling apart he wont dare give it up it means to much to him. we have had a very ruff life though i know many out there do but at 17 years we had our first son and a week following that and a accident he found out he had osteosarcoma bone cancer in his right leg. He beat it and has gone through many many surgeries to extend his leg which is made up of metal. He goes through so much pain everyday just moving around. He is unable to work though he has tried very hard to do but he is just disabled he recieved help to go to school to become a truck driver but could never find anyone to hire him due to insurence problems. he is a great dad of now four children, three of which the doctors told us we never would be able to have because of his chemo. He tries so hard we both do i am going back to school to try to make a nice stable life for us and our children we meeyt when we both were thirteen and now going on thirty so we have been in each others lives for a long time i just know getting his truck fixed would make him so happy and show him life can be good. If you do read this thank you for your time to even look it over i know you get a lot of letters but thank you very much. Colleen.

I would love it you would consider it a project. we have ran into hard times with my sister. She ended up needing to be sent to rehab for severe drug dependence. My mom and dad have diminished their live savings to pay for her treatment. It has been an ongoing battle for the past 7 years. He really wants work to be done on his ride but at this point, financially, its impossible. He really does deserve something special for everything he has sacrificed. Hope to hear from you!

    Chip I know you have heard it all by now, it’s a great show and you have a fantastic talent. 40 years ago I bought 1968 Corvette. I love the car and drove it for year, but as my family grew the car spent less time on the road than it did on the driveway. I would like to give it to my daughter who is serving in the United States Coast Guard, however it is in need of a make-over and I do not have what is necessary to get it done. Please help!

    LaurieJ says:

    We have a 1981 Z28 T-top, that needs tons of work. No motor or tranny. The story goes like this. Our son, now 33, worked with his dad doing lawn work in his teenage years. Saved his money, bought a dirt bike, then traded it for the Z, he tinkered with it and got it running. Then he graduated high school in May of 1998, 5 days later he was off to Parris Island to become a Marine. He left it covered in the yard. Rats chewed the wires. Came home put it in storage for a few years while in Iraq. Decided he no longer wanted it. Passed it down to his brother, he didn’t do anything to it. Passed it down to his sister, she didn’t have the money to restore it. Now baby brother has it. It would be great to have ya’ll work on it. We love the show and ya’lls work. Think about it. We live in Florida. Please choose this car, it would be a awesome restore. Thanks. Laurie

    David Worthington says:

    I would like to start by saying you and your crew are about the best. I have always loved cars, I did some drag racing when I was younger in the early 70′s. I have trying to afford to build my dream car or truck. I recently bought a 1984 GMC long bed truck. I feel it doesn’t need much work, but as you know when you get to the guts of the vehicle there might be some hidden problems. I was just wondering would you your crew be interested in helping me restore it. I do not have any sad stories to tell you. I am a 60 year old man that just wants his dream truck.

    Linda Hamm says:

    Dear Chip, First I would love to tell you how you inspire me as a person. I would love to meet you in person. The reason why I writing is for my boyfriend. He has a 1968 Mustang that is right now in parts. I have help him get this car about a yrear ago, to show him I believe in him. John had a very bad motor cycle accident back in 2008, and almost lost his life. Only by the grace of God is he here. He has a lot of balance and TBI issues. We have been together 2 years and we belong together, got I also have MS and have the same problem. I have a 1981 corvette that is getting redone 1st. He is so good to me in help get my car done and his car sits. It is our dream to both have a really nice car together. We talked about selling the Mustang because we could only do one car right now, so we are doing mine. He really did not want to sell it because he said “if I could see some thing in him, even though he had the problems he does, and I never give up on him. He was not going to give up on the Mustang with all the problems it has. ” kinda like seeing himself. We are very blessed that we have each other to love. We watch your show and I know everyone thinks they deserve their car done. By the will of God, I pray this story moves you to help us. Thank you for giving back to people. god bless you and your team and the show.

    Scott Morse says:

    Hi Chip and the A-Team,

    I have a good friend that has a 66 Dodge Camper special pick up truck that was passed down to him and his brother after their father was killed in a motorcycle accident the same year the both of us graduated high school. I would love for you and the A-Team to fix up the old 66 for Troy and his brother Todd. They have been talking about fixing the truck up for several years now but the family business keeps getting the way. They both work very hard in excavation up here in Lake Tahoe and are working very hard to keep their fathers business afloat.

    Thank you for looking and god bless.

    first of all I have to say I love this show so much seeing deserving people get some thing they other wise wouldn’t get because more important things that come up , like family and friends having problems in life or they have problems them self and you guys give them some joy in their lives .
    I am a father of two sons that i think is the greatest boys in the world in my eyes , my oldest son Jeremy and my youngest son Matthrew where only 18 and 17 when in 2004 they lost their grandfather ( my dad ) in April of 2004 and just a few months later they lost their mother to M.S. they both had signed for the Army National Guard Jeremy had already completed the first half of his boot camp and Matt was going to start his that summer , then their great grandmother ( my dad’s mother ) passed away that Febuary of 2005 , they all passed away before the boys even gradurated of high school , through all of this joining the Army National Guard knowing there was a good chance they would have to go over seas and fight they still joined and did go to Iraq for a short time and losing their great grandmother and their grandfather and most of all their mother they turned out awsome boys , I have had some health issues now in the last few years and they help me and others no questions ask , even when they where having their own problems they would still stop every thing and come help . Jeremy is going through the training to be a linemen , keeps him away from home alot and his wife and him just had their first child a daughter and Matt is working as a roofer and just completed his training as a industrial union roofer and he and his wife two little ones his daughter will 6 in a couple months and son 4 they both have pick up trucks that could use some dependablity back in them love you guys keep up the good work .

    THEODORE RODRIGUEZ says:

    HI Chip love the show ,
    Especially the mustang episode’s I watched every show trying memorize each detail you add every one of the cars. So I could some day have someone try and recreate what you make look so easy. Wish you guys where closer to the east coast it would be a dream come true if you and the A team could get your hands on a mustang I bought close to 13 years ago for my wife birthday. When we younger and before the kids we use to tool around in my 87 mustang. One day after working on the car together I got the idea of getting her something she can call her so I picked up a 69 coupe . But like a lot of guys priorities turned less and less to the cars so I sold off my car a we got a family cruiser. Still with the hope of some day picking up the wrenches and put her 69 mustang back on the road. I been in love with my wife since the day I met her. She’s always had my back stuck by me during good times and bad. She does so much for me and our two boys. It would great to be able to give her something like this love the show guys have a great year.

    Thanks

    Hello to Chip Foose and the whole family, What you do for people is just plain amazing , the heart felt customizing is mind blowing.
    It’s been years since I’ve gotten to see your show in my area (Virginia) Today I thought about you and everything you do. Today I lost a very dear friend , in return he left me his 1987 GMC.
    I wish I lived in your neck of the woods, I would ask you to work your magic on this tired old GMC.

    He loved me as his son, He would always bring stuff by the shop and ask me if I would fabricate a piece or to weld something up, without hesitation I done what he wanted and never charged him a cent. I paid my employer for the materials.

    It would mean the world to me if there was a way to get his truck done. I know since I haven’t filled out the app., it’s not gonna happen.

    Keep up the good work, Chip. , You do so much for others and we like it…..

    Colin Decker says:

    Hey chip, this is a kid talking. My name is Colin Decker I live in a small town where the population is around 800 in city limits. I am 16 and I have a really close neighbor. Were really big dreamers and he moved into our small community several years ago has fixed up his house and has six kids who are great. He is married and he own a corvair hes doesn’t have the knowledge to fix it up the way you do, he doesn’t have the money or the time. he is a nurse i believe and he has a great heart he likes hunting and the outdoors a lot. He has been great family friends and is raising really great kids and providing for his family in these hard times. I know you may not even read this but it was worth a try. I want to let you know that i love the work you do for others. My mom also has a jeep that always breaks down. My mom is a mail delivery women, but she just subs for the real ones who cant make it some days. She doesn’t make enough to buy a new one and its not even worth. she would never make up the deficit I don’t know the jeep year or model but i love my mom and thinking of what you could do would be amazing. My dad is hard working man and works for the huge Morenci mine which is the number one producer for copper in america. Please consider one of these people as a mark or both if you really want. I even challenge you to be able to pull both cars off in a week in the area that i live it would be pretty hard you would have to have some pretty dang good skills so please consider this challenge Please email me something and if you do i could get my dad in on this to help with the logistics.

    Debbie Dolphin says:

    Hey Chip! I would love the opportunity to surprise my husband. He has a truck, nothing fancy a 2002 GMC Sierra that was his dads. It has blistering paint and the engine is getting ready to need some work. My husband Glenn is retiring this year and it would be great if we could save this old truck because his Dad gave it to him. He has always done things for others and never has had the money to fix up the truck. We have raised 3 children and now have adopted a granddaughter as our own and we are starting over, so between her braces and and other expenses I know we could not afford to get this done. He has been in the Marine Corp in his first job and law enforcement in the current job. So please consider him for one of your Overhauln’ Projects. Thanks, Debbie Dolphin 803 646-3103 PS Did I mention it is our 30th Anniversary this year?

    Breanne Leach says:

    My dad has a 1970 mustang. He’s had it for a little over 18 years, and has always talked about wanting to restore it. He’s always worked longer hours so he’s never gotten the time to start. He attempted before I was born, but found out my mom was pregnant and had to put it on hold. Everytime he tries to start again, something comes up. He’s providing for a pretty big household and doesn’t have the money to put into it. I want to help him out with his dream. For everything he’s done for me the past 18 years, and to thank him for being the father he has, and putting everyone’s needs before his own. I believe that by restoring his mustang, I could do that. But I’m going to need your help.

    how inpatient my father is and kinda cheap, well not that he is ! But we all want to find the best deal to get. So my father took his car to a body shop to get its dents fix and body parts to get painted and I dont ever blame people on how to do there job but my father had waited to get his car back from the paint shop for months. So I told to him hey its ok they’re going to do a great job if they are holding onto it for this long . So the day had came and my father picked the car up and showed me some pictures it look good but in person I had pointed out some faults there where lots of theses bubble things around some parts of the paint. So my dad as nice guy as he always is says eh its ok .. so I dont argue if the guy is happy then let it be.

    I have an opportunity for you. I know you have recently been to Australia and wonder if you have considered OVERHAULIN an AUSSIE CLASSIC. You could call it “International Overhaulin” . Problem being getting the vehicle to you. Anyway the subject vehicle is my 1972 FORD XA FALCON COUPE/FASTBACK. Just think ROADWARRIOR/MAD MAX, but better. I have been really slack letting my Pride and Joy sit in the garage. Lack of funds doesn’t help. Anyway Mr FOOSE, it is a dream of mine to have you and the OVERHAULIN TEAM work your MAGIC on this BEAST. As well as having a piece of FOOSE HISTORY DOWN UNDER. If you read this I thank you for taking the time. Keep up the great work you guys do. LOVE the show.

    Hi, my name is Rachelle. My dad has a 1978 cadillac deville and its his baby. The bad part about it, is that it has a lot of problems. For example the altintor doesnt want to work, the seats are all ripped up, he cant drive at night cause hismlight dont work, and the driver side window wont roll up. At the moment its his only way to get around because his other 2 cars broke down as well. Its been a pretty tough year for him and he cant afford to do much to his car. He is now a retired truck driver he got hurt at work. He cant work on cars witnout getting a bloody nose or getting all short of breath. He’s had it for about 8 years now and it sucks seeing him struggle with it. Thank you for reading this. :) love your cars by the way

    His x bought it for his 40th BD. They divorced 17 yrs later. She lied to the Judge saying she had sold it along with all his work trucks and tools. He had to start over in life.

    We met and are getting married.(Pretty brave of him after what he’s gone thru.) His BD is 12/29/49 & he will be 65.
    Please consider him. This car has been the piece of his life that he was able to hang on to. It would mean a lot for both of us.

    Thank you,

    Hi Chip,
    My name is Riley I am 12 and my siblings are 10, 6, and 4. I also have a wonderful mom and dad. My dad is a very hard self employed man, this year he turned 42. My dad has two starliners that are very important to him one is starting to rust and the other rusting baddly on the floor. He would love to work on them but he has no time. every year he says he’ll work on them but he never does this makes me sad. He loves your show and has watched all of the episodes on netflix. I love him to death because he does so much for me. If you guys would help me do this for my dad you would not believe how happy my dad, family and I would be. I need your help. Thank you for taking your time and reading this.

    Hi Overhaulin Team! I would like to surprise my brother with his 64′ Cadillac deVille that is a diamond in the ruff. Ever since he traded one of his previous cars on this deVille for his love of Cadillacs it has sat in the garage wilting away. This piece of history needs to be showcased on the road and who better to do it than Chip Foose and the Overhaulin team! So what do you say… how about we get this 64′ out of the garage and onto the open roads for past and future generations to see a classic beauty!

    Hi, my father Ridel Sr., has a 1986 Ford 250 he’s had it forever ! He started his plumbing company in this truck and has been a hard working man all his life . The truck has been worked just as hard . I remember as a child that truck was always a nice ride but now over time it’s turned into a rust bucket ..I would want nothing more then to have that truck be a example of all you can accomplish if you work hard and never give up because my father migrated from Cuba to America when he was only 15 by himself and built a great life for himself and his family. He deserves to have something that represents that if anything. Please overhaul this truck!

    Dear Chip,
    I would love to have my husbands 94 Mustang GT fixed up for him, Every time he tries to put money away to fix it up something comes up and the car doesn’t get fixed. The transmission is leaking, he need new front seats cause they are broken, and he needs a few other things done to it. We really don’t have the money to put into it but the car is his pride and joy. The car was given to him and every Christmas we give him gift certificates so he can purchase items for his car. Can you please help me or at least refer me to someone where I can have his seats replaced since they are broken. He loves to watch your show when he can and only dreams that some day it would happen to him. Can you please help me make his dreams come true I can’t think of anyone who deserves it more than him. 267-265-2658

    Mr Foose, my mom died when I was eight & my big brother was 12 he dropped out of school to go to work to help our alcoholic father make money as a trim carpenter & has been helping our whole family grow up.
    May17,2013 he had a bad accident & died for about
    3 – 5 minutes before they revived him his dream car was destroyed & the guy who hit him was in a stolen SUV so he has survived the accident but he lost everything & is now disabled!
    He bought a 1966 Lincoln 2dr coupe & tried to restore it but everywhere he’s taken it they have taken advantage of him.

    Yes my boy friend has 08 Dodge Charger , with the hemi motor. He really wants to make this car with an eagle on the hood, he’s a veteran, and wants it painted, with all patriotic pictures. And to run like a bat out of heck. But he is on Disability, from his back. He wanted to have it done himself, but due to lack of money, and no one does anything for free. He is in a really depressed state. He’s wanted a patriotic car since he’s been out of the military. But as I said it costs a lot of money( that we or he doesn’t have) and even after surgery, and gets back to work, he still never be able to do what he wants. Can you help?? Thank You Mary L. Smith
