For more than a decade, Depp’s wife, Amber Heard, has cherished the ’68 Mustang. Since then the car has been stolen twice and fallen into disrepair. With guidance from Heard’s father, Depp turns to Foose and the team to surprise Amber with a Mustang that’s been brought back to life with the classic OVERHAULIN’ touch.

OVERHAULIN' SEASON 6 EPISODE 4 REVIEW
October 24, 2012
This week's episode of Overhaulin' was a special one not only
because we had never customized a VW Beetle before, but mainly because we
welcomed, Blake, the VW’s owner to come work with all of us at the shop to
transform his ride. He had always dreamed of working with us on his car so,
Chris and Jessi surprised him at his home the day they picked up the VW. Blake was an active child who raced dirt
bikes, but a debilitating lung disease, cystic fibrosis, has slowed him down at his
young age of 25. Blake would work on his VW whenever he had the time,
however, lately the transformation had been moving at a slower pace. With Blake’s tenacity to never give up we
wanted to help him speed up his build process and construct the custom street
racer he had been so diligently working to complete.
OVERHAULIN' SEASON 6 EPISODE 3 REVIEW
October 17, 2012
It was a beautiful day when I took the drive up to
to pick up Bernie’s ’67 Camaro. I have my own 1st
generation RS Camaro that I really enjoy driving, so I was excited to be overhauling this original. He had taken good care of his vehicle, but I could picture a few ways we could turn it into a special hot rod. We quickly hauled the car away before Bernie got home. To his surprise, there was a toy car waiting in its place with a gift explaining that the family wanted to give it a little makeover as a thank you for all he had done for them. Little did he know, he was about to get Overhauled! Bernie was a local pastor who had a fondness for charity, so it seemed fit to give back to him and make his dream car a reality.
OVERHAULIN' SEASON 6 EPISODE 2 REVIEW
October 10, 2012
After an emotional episode of Overhaulin' last week, we found another well deserving father for episode 2 who was was in desperate need of a truck renovation. Chuck, a retired high school teacher and coach, inherited his 1954 Chevy pickup from his aunt, Cathleen, who originally bought the truck brand new. Having dedicated so many years to his family, students and community, it was a great feeling to give back to such a hard working candidate.
