If you've ever sunk a Saturday afternoon watching a Wheeler Dealers marathon on BBC America, we don't need to tell you the show is plenty addictive. A tag team salesman and mechanic snag slightly run-down cars and SUVs, fix a few simple problems and flip them for a profit in the UK.

Now it looks as if the Discovery Channel is set to unleash an Americanized version of the show. Fast N' Loud follows a shop as they seek out classic cars and trucks, customize them and work to sell them at a profit. It looks a bit like American Pickers met Pimp My Ride and Overhaulin in a bar bathroom and this is the fruit of their rendezvous.

We will, of course, tune in if for no other reason than the guys look to have gotten their hands on an early '50s Oldsmobile Coupe. That's one of our favorites. The show premiers on Wednesday, June 6 at 10 p.m. Eastern on the Discovery Channel. Scroll down to check out the teaser for yourself.

      This will be nothing like Wheeler Dealer. It will be a couple of loud mouths showing themselves off and acting stupid spinning donuts in the parking lot.

      this is going to be more about the drama than about the car repair itself. Just like every other american car show... I hope they prove me wrong.

        Pretty much expected. Also, why does 'American Version' have to mean an overdose of teenage testosterone and borderline douchey characters you wouldn't really want to hang out with? Wheeler Dealers has a ton of charm due to its very likable hosts, and it actually teaches you a lot about fixing cars.

      I hope the show does great (the more car content the better) but this is NOT Wheeler Dealers. This is "Pawn Stars wit Carz".

        Exactly... Wheeler Dealers makes me want to buy an MGB 'cause Edd makes it look sooooo easy.

      The fact that you guys compared this to Wheeler Dealers makes me want to cry. This just looks like another stupid "reality" show with big dumb people that will eventually end up yelling at each other in the name of "drama." Cars or no cars... I hope this fails.

        Velocity is a Dicovery Channel, so I can understand the mistake.

      They lost me at 'Loud". Wheeler Dealers is fun because of its smart, steady pace, clear presentation, cheeky attitude and *most importantly* a lack of fake drama. Attention reality show producers: Your commercial to commercial cliffhangers suck. We know the swamp guy doesn't get bit by the alligaor. We know Tanner doesn't get hurt in the car crash. We know the guy at the pawn shop doesn't take a swing at Les. If any of that crap happened it would be on TMZ the day it was recorded. Please stop it already.

      Count me in as a Wheeler Dealer addict. My favorite was the Fiat 500 show when Mike tried to drive the car back from Italy.

      Hopefully it's more "American Restoration" than "Pimp My Ride." God, that show was terrible. Thanks, Xzhibit, but I didn't really need a George Foreman grill installed where my CD player used to be.

      This is nothing like Wheeler Dealers. Wheeler Dealers shows the regular person that they too can rebuild a cheap car and make a profit off of it. This crap you guys posted about is another ridiculous reality show Discovery couldn't wait to get out on the market. It looks as if these guys already have a ton of money and they pour a ton of money into the car to make a profit.

      More garbage from the Discovery Channel. You know, I remember as a kid(90s) watching Discovery & TLC religiously. They had some of the most interesting/educational programming of any channel. Now, well...let's just say that they are the new MTV.

      Douchebags and hot rods. Never fails.
