Misfit Garage is a spin-off of Discovery Channel’s series Fast N’ Loud. The show features Tom Smith and Jordan Butler, along with Thomas Weeks and Scot McMillan, as they go to work revamping a variety of old cars.
If you don’t have cable or can’t get to a TV, you can watch the Discovery Channel via Philo TV, a cable-free, live-TV streaming service.
Not only is Philo the cheapest option among all the streaming services at just $16 per month, but you can sign up for a free trial without having to enter any billing information. You’ll get two days for free right off the bat, then if you enter your billing information after that, you will get five more days free. After signing up, you can watch the show live on your computer via the Philo website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Philo app.
Additionally, if you can’t watch live, Philo also allows you to DVR programs and watch them later. And even if you forget to DVR the show, it also comes with a 72-hour rewind feature, which allows you to replay any show or event that has aired in the last 72 hours.
Misfit Garage stars Texas-based mechanics Tom Smith and Jordan Butler, along with Thomas Weeks and Scot McMillan. Together, the crew works at Fired Up Garage.
In 2016, Hollywood Soap Box interviewed Smith about car mechanics and what was, at the time, a new show.
According to the outlet, Smith developed his love of cars when he was just a child. He was also young when he first started taking machines apart and putting them back together.
Asked how the idea for Fired Up Garage started, Smith said, “I have a sign that I made on the side of my toolbox around 1988 that reads ‘F&U Auto Service’ with the caption: ‘Our customers have been satisfying us since 1973.’ The wife of our executive producer (Eddie Rohwedder) came up with Misfits.”
He goes on to say that he was just 7-years-old and living in Georgia when he became enamored with his first car– his stepfather’s black ’65 Galaxie. Over the years, he began working jobs at car shops; slowly, he learned the mechanics behind, well, the mechanics of cars.
Asked what his car of choice to drive be on any road in the United States, Smith says, “I am passionately in love with a thousand cars! For a daily driver — I am always haulin’ something, so that requires a truck — A 1970, 3/4 ton Ford 427 Tunnel Port Sport Custom Camper Special with four wheel drive! For a Cruiser — a black on black on black 1969 Ford Boss 429 6 — speed, giant brakes, air conditioned with racing seats!”
