Genre: Reality, Auto, Auction
Premise: Two ideas producers seem to consistently rely on for reality TV programming are shows about refurbishing and ``flipping'' cars, and shows about auctions. (Oh, and don't forget to add ``Wars'' to the program titles ... because it's all about the battle on reality TV!) ``Texas Car Wars'' combines both of those plot points. It follows the risky bidding wars waged at car auctions among four auto shops in Texas, where there are more unregistered, salvaged cars than anywhere in the country. The series then reveals how the shops' employees try to turn the junkers they purchase into jackpots by fixing them up for resale.
