Updated Apr 03, 2020 | Same topic: COVID-19 Updates

You might want to check out these car shows on Netflix.

If you ask anyone about how they cope up with the COVID-19 quarantine, chances are Netflix will be their go-to boredom easer. The American media-service provider has shown great progress over the years with over 167 million paid memberships. So, it’s not a surprise for Netflix to produce different genres – which includes car shows.

We’ve given you car movies you can watch on Netflix, but if you want a list of TV series instead, here’s our list. 

1. Car Masters: Rust to Riches

The casts of Car Masters: Rust to Riches go by the principle, “Upgrade and Trade.” This means that the crew will purchase an undesired car, modify it, and sell the car for a higher value – that principle kept the Gotham Garage going. Mark Towle, the founder of Gotham Garage, definitely made use of the saying, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”
