I would like to personally THANK YOU for being a part of Search and Restore’s first build of Season 2. Attached you will find my press release regarding the details of the show. I would like to add that this is the best show yet – I am very proud to say that Search and Restore teams are not building “TV” cars – but real hot rods. The 1955 Handywagon is going to a true car enthusiast, as he will be watching the Premier on May 19 in Tacoma WA with his friends and family – the Handywagon will be on display at the Goodguys Car show in Nashville TN for all the fans to see. This is his “thank you” to all the volunteers and parts suppliers. I can assure you, this vehicle will be well taken care of!

Once again THANK YOU for being part of the build. If you are interested in being part of an upcoming build – Please contact me.

Search and Restore airs on SPIKE TV May 19, 2012 – Please pass it along to all your employees and customers.


Tim Strange

Search and Restore Host & Lead Builder


Franklin TN, May 8, 2012: The focus of Search and Restore is on finding the family treasures and lost causes, bringing them all back to life. From coast to coast, host Tim Strange, and volunteer teams of pros will donate their time restoring rides nationwide to those worthy of a helping hand. Search & Restore is not just a show for automotive enthusiasts, but a great show that dad can watch with his family – there is a story and best of all NO DRAMA.

Tim Strange, award-winning rod builder, BMXer and owner of Strange Motion is the host and Lead Builder of Search and Restore. “The show is a feel-good, give back type of show,” said Strange. “We build projects for deserving people with touching or hard-luck stories. Each project we build gets four half-hour shows. We build four projects each season so there will be 16 episodes.” “There’s no better feeling than helping someone regain that sense of hope after they feel like they’ve lost everything,” Strange said. “Thanks to our volunteer build teams and the hosts of the other PowerBlock shows, we’re able to help someone pick up the pieces, turn a dream into a reality and have fun doing it.”

May 19, 2012 SPIKE TV will run the first build of season two of Search and Restore. It will run as a two hour special, you will see the beginning and end of the build. On Sunday May 20, 2012 SPIKE TV will do a rerun of Saturday’s show. The first build of the season, Host, Tim Strange share’s a common interest with the vehicle owner – BMX (Bicycle Moto X). Tim has been racing BMX since he was 13 years old. Currently Tim and wife Carrie, are very active in the sport and run a factory team, Strange Motion/Kicker. Strange and his crew completely build a 1955 wagon in a month, putting in more than 3,600 hours of labor. A three- or four-man shop, he said, would have finished the project in about a year. After receiving nearly 200,000 submissions from viewers, Search and Restore is PowerBlock’s answer to ignite hope back into the lives of those in need of a helping hand. Search and Restore is not a “How to” show, like the other PowerBlock shows.
