"Counting Cars" (TV show) is a reality series on History Channel that is hosted by Danny "The Count" Koker, who has made frequent appearances on the hits series "Pawn Stars."

Most people in Las Vegas bet with chips. The Count bets with cars. He's a Sin City legend with an insatiable appetite for anything on wheels. Danny acquires, restores and customizes classic cars and motorcycles — and then "flips" them for a profit.

Ever since the first Model-T rolled off the assembly line in 1908, cars

have gripped the psyche. Danny is no different. He walks, talks and breathes American muscle cars, vintage Harleys, tricked out trikes, and dune buggies. When he sees a ride he wants — whether it's on display at an auto auction or parked at a roadside diner — he will stop at nothing to acquire it, often making on-the-spot offers with cold, hard cash.

It's not just a passion for Danny, it's a high-stakes business. With the help of his talented team, Danny must restore, modify, customize and sell these highway gems in a hurry. The more rides he "picks," the more pressure there is at his Las Vegas shop to move these vehicles fast to stay in the black.

Every episode of "Counting Cars" is bursting at the seams with amazing stories about historic vehicles, jaw-dropping before-and-after transformations and wheeling and dealing at its absolute best. From vintage Thunderbirds to classic Corvettes and souped-up sidecar motorcycles, Danny will stop at nothing to find and flip the greatest rides of all time.

Season 2

This season's projects span all eras of cars, trucks, bikes and trikes. They'll be working with Ziggy Marley to restore and customize Bob Marley's last car, a 1980 Mercedes 500SL Euro; and customizing a soap box derby car for a youngster. The Count also takes on several jobs that honor our troops, and tricks out a motorized wheelchair. Every episode features stories behind vintage vehicles, striking before-and-after transformations, and Danny's relentless compulsion to find and flip the greatest rides of all time, at any cost.



Season 4

The latest installments are packed with more high-speed action than ever before. From parking lot burnouts to The Count's signature pullovers, Danny and his team return with a trunk load of new, high octane projects. This season boasts a shop visit from legendary rockers Judas Priest, a run-in with a former NBA star, and blazing fast racetrack laps driven in a Shelby Cobra. From vintage Mustangs and Mercurys to classic Camaros and Cadillacs, Danny and his crew will pull out all the stops to restore and build the greatest rides of all time. Additionally, The Count is asked to build a bike in memory of eight sailors who were lost on the USS Belknap, a project that Danny treats with care and honor.

Season 5

In this season, Danny Koker pushes his team harder than ever to create their greatest rides yet. The new season kicks off with a one-hour special featuring a "his and hers" restoration of a 1970 Plymouth Road Runner and a 1970 Dodge Coronet. The job has Danny over the moon ... until he discovers just how much TLC both cars need; forcing him into overdrive to get the job finished on time. Later in the season, music industry legend Del Bryant turns to Danny to restore his father's 1972 Chevy Blazer as a tribute to his family and the University of Tennessee. Danny goes above and beyond, fabricating the ultimate tailgating party machine for the Tennessee native. Other episodes feature Ryan working after-hours on a secret project behind Danny's back; a Rat Rod restoration road trip that leaves Danny stranded in the desert after Kevin sells The Count's beloved 1972 Monte Carlo; and a second special hour-long episode during which Danny organizes a car show to turn heads with a stunning 1973 Boattail Riviera that features the most amazing paint job ever to come out of Count's Kustom.
