Motor City Masters pulled off its concept of Project Runway for cars rather well. In the end, the TruTV reality series came down to former Ford designer Camilo Pardo and multi-disciplined designer Bryan Thompson, but Pardo was always kind of the show's ringer as the person instrumental in the gorgeous shape of the Ford GT. In addition to the title of Motor City Master, he won the grand prize of $100,000 and a 2014 Camaro Z/28.
If you missed it, Motor City Masters challenged 10 designers and fabricators to come up with a concept around a different theme each week. The contestants were judged by former Mercedes-Benz designer Harald Belker and Jean Jennings, recent editor-in-chief of Automobile Magazine, plus a celebrity guest. Their final task spread over the last episodes was to first create a clay model of a next-generation Camaro SS, then mock up a full-size version of it.

You can still watch all of the episodes streaming on TruTV's website, and we suspect it'll be in rerun status on the cable network, too. Or if you just want a taste of what the show was like, check out our included show clip.

      Wish it was Darby. Glad it wasn't Jameson.or Doc. Camilo was a ringer though for sure. Even Darby thought so. Wonder if they'll be a season 2.

      Shane sucked! What a chode! Camillo and Darby were solidly talented, Doc a close runner up. Jameson had entitlement issues, I REALLY hope there's a season 2!

      Never saw the show but everyone has a individual tastes in what kind of car they like. There are some custom car building firms out there in the world that(if you have the money)will build your own original personalized car. I love automobiles especially two seater sport cars for the track and street/freeway driving and off roading trucks. The idea of a concept vehicle that you can ACTUALLY test drive instead of a mockup would be better for this show.
