  • Your show host Robert and special guest Chuck Palumbo. Chuck is a former WWE wrestling star "The Main Event", an accomplished musician, biker, fabricator and now co-host of Discovery Channel's new hit TV show "Lord of the Car Hoards". Chuck and his co-host, friend and fellow hot rodder, Rick Dore, scour the southern California landscape searching for car guys that have tons of vintage car-goddies nestled and stashed away in backyards, shops and sheds, but not doing anything with it. Their concept is to convince the owners of the old cars to come off the junk in exchange for a nicely redone and running and driving cool set of wheels. Then it is up to Cuck and Rick to figue out how to profit with what is left over. Great idea, not always easy! Tune in to Lord of the Car Hoards and watch the tales, as Chuck and Rick have a fun and challenging time rescuing and building some pretty neat and unusual cars, bikes and wicked stuff.
