Legendary Car Customizer Galpin Auto Sports is Coming to Discovery

The brand-new Discovery Channel series will premiere in winter 2020.

In 1952, Galpin Auto Sports revolutionized the automotive world by becoming the first dealership to ever design, build, and sell a custom car, transforming the business into the most storied customization shop in the entire game. Now, Beau Boeckmann, president and COO for Galpin Motors Inc., custom car builder Dave Shuten, and customization specialist “Mad Mike” Martin, are revving up engines to save automotive history and rescue car culture from oblivion in the brand-new Discovery Channel series, GALPIN AUTO SPORTS (W/T) premiering in winter 2020.

Here are 4 things you need to know:

1. Beau Boeckmann was born for this.

Boeckmann grew up on the showroom floors of Galpin dealerships and is the mastermind behind Galpin Auto Sports’ entire operation. He’s passionate about all things automotive and is notorious in the motor world for doing anything it takes to find rare, historical cars and original customs. Beau has worked with some of the most iconic figures in the industry and will help his crew source everything they need to make a build work.

2. The legendary “Mad Mike” is back.

Customization specialist “Mad Mike” Martin has made a career out of building and wiring outrageous projects and has become a household name when his crazy ideas were brought to life on MTV’s “Pimp My Ride.”

3. Dave Shuten is the master builder to watch.

Shuten created the Galpin Speed Shop with Beau and has spent years restoring classic automobiles like the infamous Pink Panthermobile and constructing custom cars like the Iron Orchid, a one-off period correct '34 Ford 5-window coupe.

4. We’re putting automotive history in the driver’s seat.

Together, these three masters of motor will uncover historic and one-of-a-kind cars to rebuild and reintroduce back into the automotive history books. With a focus on vehicle performance and car culture, the Galpin crew will take part in some of the biggest competitions, test their vehicles on the toughest tracks and unveil some of the craziest, most important cars to people around the world. They’re not just in it for the high-dollar builds, but to spotlight automotive history and restore forgotten car culture.
