Gearz is a television show on SpeedTV that shows viewers how to modify a vehicle to do their specifications. The concept of the show is really a how to guide and it does a step-by-step approach to seeing how modifications are done. The show is hosted by Stacy David who does a lot of work on the cars himself. He shows the viewer what kind of special tools are needed to perform the best work.
Mr. David also interviews a lot of famous people in the automotive industry. He talks to them about their special vehicles and gives viewers a closer look at a lot of rare edition of automobiles. Stacy David got his start in the automatic industry by working as a mechanic even before he could drive. He now works as a custom fabricator and uses his expertise to show viewer at home what they can do in their own garage. The tips and tricks shown on Gearz come from a diverse nature. In one episode, Stacy David shows how to lift a Cadillac Escalade. Other episode shows viewers how to turbo charge their own vehicle.
Stacy David also likes to bring on celebrities to show their souped up machines. One episode focuses on rocker Ted Nugent and his Ford Bronco. Another episode shows more about Nugent's Bronco while Stacy and his team redo the car to resemble a beast. Some episodes focus on pitting cars against each other. The idea is to see if Stacy's performance-enhanced version of a particular model can compete against other cars.
While Gearz focuses a lot on extreme rides and amazing automotive modifications, there is a practical side to the show as well. Stacy and his team focus on showing viewers a lot of "do it yourself" type tricks to make souping up your vehicles possible on a budget. There are several episodes devoted to finding parts at junkyards, for example. The show also devotes an episode to determine the difference between original manufacturer's parts and so-called aftermarket parts. These allow viewers to decide what is best for their vehicles. Stacy David and his team make sure to run tests on all the vehicle modifications that they do.
