Last Car Standing Premiers April 22, 2013 on Discovery & Contest (Win $10,000 in Canadian Tire “Money”®)By mommakoala
It’s our bucket of bolts, our money pit, or just a plain old piece of junk…call it want you want.
When we had the opportunity to participate in a new TV show called Last Car Standing, we didn’t hesitate. We saw it as a “win/win” situation. Dump the old wreck in style…OR…go for the restoration glory.
Unfortunately we cannot spill out too many details because the show premiers April 22, 2013 on Discovery Channel at 10 pm.
Our 1995 Volvo Turbo Wagon fit into the Mid-Size category and we are pleased as punch that we are the first show out the gate. We were not taped in that order.
Last Car Standing pits the owners of extraordinarily lousy cars against each other in an escalating series of intense driving contests. In the space of each one hour show, we put five drivers through four high-impact elimination rounds until we’re left with the sole car-vivor. The stakes? The driver of the last car standing gets a $10,000 upgrade. Or, they can pass on the ten grand for a chance to compete in our playoff episode for a complete $50,000 automotive resurrection!
And for the losers? Each eliminated beater will get impaled in front of its owner’s eyes on our massive Spike of Shame

The Contest (Starting April 22, 2013)
The Grand Finale winner isn’t the only lucky one!
One viewer will also have the chance to fix up their own wheels – or anything else in desperate need – with $10,000 in Canadian Tire “Money”®. Together with the broadcast premiere on April 22, LAST CAR STANDING and Canadian Tire will launch an online photo contest at LastCarStandingContest.ca . To enter, viewers can upload photos of their own cars for a chance at the Grand Prize: a briefcase containing $10,000 in Canadian Tire “Money”®. Nine secondary prizes – gift packs containing car products – will be randomly drawn and awarded weekly. The interactive experience extends through the Discovery Social Screen and on mobile via the Discovery App; and viewers can drive the LAST CAR STANDING conversation with host Christian Potenza during LIVE chats on Twitter (@LastCarStanding) during each Monday’s 10 p.m. ET broadcast (hashtag #Last Car).
At Discovery.ca, viewers can watch full episodes and video extras, explore photo galleries, and find series and episode descriptions.
