287: American’s Brother JD and is wife / girl friend Lexi.

Brother JD is a popular celebrity who has crafted such TV shows as Turn n Burn, Wrench Wars and his traveling adventures he calls Nationwide Danger Ride. His El Rey Hot Rod Shop in Venice California is still operating while he is seeing America.

Brother travels with his wife / girlfriend – Lexi, in a big old travel trailer being pulled by something out of the”Island of Misfit Toys”. The body is an old 60’s ambulance that was once used high in the mountains. The chassis is a heavy duty duly with a diesel pumping plenty of power.

He still produces his popular Wrench Wars where back yard mechanics compete against each other. It’s like a WWE cage match for crazy car guys and gals. With judges watching the two show off the exterior and interior of their builds. From motorcycles to hot rods. The finale is the two must perform such things as fixing a wiring or carburetor problem.

Brother JD is a true American.
