I enjoy watching episodes of Power Nation on Youtube. There are a lot of really talented guys on the channel and they keep it interesting with a wide variety of projects.
Some projects are done in good taste while the direction for others seems to be driven solely by sponsor products or someones desire to show off their fabrication skills.
I was excited to see them begin the LS swapped G body Regal project but they ruined it for me by putting this stupid Fast and Furious spoiler on it for some "mean downforce".
The factory GN spoiler was "too bland or vanilla" so they "added some flavor". The holes they put in the aftermarket rear bumper are also ugly....What do you guys think?

I think the mods, like the bumper and spoiler, are just to show different fab methods which adds something they have not done on the show...too many times. So it is tech that they can do easily in that shop to fill out a half hour show.

I don't like the mods myself, but I understand why they modded that way.

I'd rather have a clean, no mod car, but that doesn't fill a half hour show.

Could have had the regal done in 4 to 5 episodes, but they need to make about 10 to 12 shows this season. Frame suspension. paint and body, interior, engine and trans, do the little things to get it done and drive it around commenting on the car they built.

The cobra mustang they are building along side the regal has more and different mods. There is more mods you buy and do to a mustang versus a regal.

I can't wait until they run all of the individual header tubes through the exhaust ports in the rear bumper.
