Longtime Autobody News columnist Rich Evans is taking his brand international, having set out in July with a team of nine other automotive experts to Elmsdale, Nova Scotia for the filming of an upcoming episode of “World Wide Car Building with Rich Evans,” a car building show with a cultural twist.
“World Wide Car Building with Rich Evans (WWCB)” is a documentary-style TV series in which Evans collaborates with car builders around the world, engaging the audience in a cultural exchange of creativity, technique, and the universal love for the automobile. In this episode, Rich and crew teamed up with Curtis MacLean of Curtis Customs Designs for a ten-day build in late July. Together, the team built a customized 2004 Hummer H2. Evans also made a public appearance on the Curtis Customs Classic Car Show on July 28 and 29.
Each episode of WWCB begins with a client’s request for Rich Evans to build a one-of-a-kind car. Evans assembles a team of specialists who travel to that country for the build. Working with the local crew, Rich and his team must confront and adapt to challenges as they use local resources, collaborate on technique, and work with a limited amount of time on the build.
Evans is widely known as a car designer and builder ready for a challenge. His unique vehicle graphics, customization and modification are sought by celebrities who want Evans to work on special projects around the globe.
Evans was team leader on Car Warriors on SPEED Channel as an All-Star fabricator, painter and designer. He appeared in 26 episodes of Chop, Cut, Rebuild on SPEED Channel, two episodes of Junk Yard Wars on TLC and once on MTV’s Pimp My Ride. Evans also teamed up with Ebay Motors on Mod Jobs for a custom build.
