Hotrodders.com gets episodes of "Overhaulin" pulled from the air - YAY !
all pulled episodes are ones that feature a shop called "Gas Monkey Garage" which recently spammed the hotrodders.com forum with their poser "bad ass" image and a thinly veiled advertising scheme that hid behind the guise of "charity"
this got the forum owner highly pissed off .... heres the post about the Discovery's decision

this wouldnt be the first time a company has ditched an entire show over a controversy
in fact, its probably one of the cheaper shows to ditch:
hardly any sets,
alot of the people working on the cars are previous marks who are volenteering
all the parts are donated
the main characters dont make 1mill / episode
there have been million dollar movies that were dropped during production, why not a few episodes of a tv show ?
those be some crazy links - I'd never heard of this guy before but he sounds like a grade-A toolbox. also - Discovery and Overhaulin's logos are still up on the GMG site.
Interesting what a tight nit, focused, serious automotive community can accomplish.
What is that?
