"Vegas Rat Rods" is a reality docu-series that airs on Discovery Channel.

Steve Darnell and his team of rat rod specialists are master automotive fabricators. They work out of a sprawling garage, Welder Up, on the outskirts of the Las Vegas Strip, re-building one-of-a-kind Mad Max-style "rat rod" cars out of hidden treasure for quirky customers.

An expert picker, Darnell finds hidden treasure buried in junkyards, farmers' fields and swap meets. He and his crew assemble his finds into rolling works of auto-art. In each episode of this series, creativity and imagination are taken to the next level as each rat rod created represents the person it is being made for.

From a shotgun gearshift and mason jar tail lights, to death row electric chair car seats and horseshoe gas peddles, each rat rod featured on this series is equal parts discarded treasure, high-tech performance parts and wild imagination from Darnell and his entire team.

Season 2

Big changes are in store for the sophomore season, including more car action than ever before in one of America's best car towns — Las Vegas! In addition to Welderup expanding into a new and improved car shop, Darnell and his crew will take on bigger and badder builds for new clients with even more eccentric needs. But no challenge is too big for Darnell and his team. In each episode, the Welderup team not only has to meet the high expectations of their clients, but also build the vehicle in less than ten days.

As Welderup continues to grow, family becomes more important than ever to Darnell and the team. As the crew settles into its new home, for the first time, Darnell's two teenage sons Chase and Kash are given responsibilities at the shop and the opportunity to learn the business from their father. Additionally, a new crew member joins the Welderup team this season. With 25 years of car experience under his belt, Grant makes the big move from small-town Canada to prove himself in the Las Vegas big leagues. Together with Darnell and returning crew members Dan, Travis, Dave, Justin and Twiggy, Welderup pulls out all the stops to bring ambitious ideas to life and create the most impressive and extraordinary rat rods in Sin City.
