Episode highlights from Season 1 of LASTSTOP GARAGE include:LAST STOP GARAGE: “Skidder-Tow Truck” Monday, Oct. 23 at 9 p.m. ET/ 6 p.m. PT
A local woman loses control of her vehicle and it ends up trapped far down an ice-covered embankment. Collin (owner), Corey (lead mechanic), and Stan (general manager) attempt to pull it out with their shop truck, but soon realize it’s a lost cause – the angle is too steep and their truck is not powerful enough. The boys hatch a plan to use the back half of their old broken-down tow truck and attach it to a giant skidder to create an off-road rescue machine.
LAST STOP GARAGE: “Snow Bus Resurrection” Monday, Oct. 23 at 9:30 p.m. ET/ 6:30 p.m. PT
Collin, Corey, and Stan are asked by an outfitter to get his antique snow bus up and running again. The bus has been left abandoned in a backyard for 10 years and old parts are hard to come by, so it will be no easy feat. The skis are bent out of shape, the gas tank is rotten, and the motor won’t start, but with backwoods ingenuity, the boys give it an overhaul just in time for an old-fashioned snow tour.
LAST STOP GARAGE: “Rink-Making Machine” Monday, Oct. 30 at 9 p.m. ET/ 6 p.m. PT
The town doesn’t have an ice rink, but that’s not going to stop the garage from hosting a charity hockey game. Collin, Corey, and Stan start by attaching two snow-blowers to the front of an ATV in order to clear a mountain of snow off the lake. Then, they attempt to complete their “rink-making machine” by building a homemade ice resurfacer on the back.
LAST STOP GARAGE: “Trail-Groomer Rescue”Monday, Oct. 30 at 9:30 p.m. ET/ 6:30 p.m. PT
Collin and Corey are called out to do some trail-side service when the only trail-groomer in town breaks down. The “snowmobile highway” will be closed until they can repair the trail-groomer and get it back into commission with the help of almost everyone from the garage, including Stan. They have to hoist the massive machine onto a sled, tow it to safety, and fix it up, all before sundown.
LAST STOP GARAGE: “Labrador Snow Tanker” Monday, Nov. 6 at 9 p.m. ET/ 6 p.m. PT
The northern communities are running low on fuel and a local woman is on a mission to deliver a tank of it by snowmobile. The tank will weigh 3,000 pounds when it’s full and her snowmobile doesn’t have enough power to pull even half of that. With an engine transplant on the snowmobile, pontoon-shaped skis on the tank, and some Labradorian ingenuity, Corey designs a super-hauler built for the trails.
LAST STOP GARAGE: “Fan Boat” Monday, Nov. 6 at 9:30 p.m. ET/ 6:30 p.m. PT
A local hunter wants to be able to travel over thin ice and shallow water, so he hires the garage to build him a fan boat. Collin and Corey have never built one before, but they figure bolting an airplane engine to the back of a lightweight hull will be a good start. Safety issues and steering problems ensue.
LAST STOP GARAGE: “Monster Mud Truck” Monday, Nov. 13 at 9 p.m. ET/ 6 p.m. PT
After coming to the rescue of a local trapper who is stuck in the mud, the boys see an opportunity to ensure it never happens again: build him a big, bad off-road truck that can tackle the meanest Labrador terrain. Later, the crew has to negotiate for a suitable truck, fix up a timing problem, lift up the vehicle using unconventional methods, and put on some monster wheels and tires.
LAST STOP GARAGE: “Hot Rod Wagon” Monday, Nov. 13 at 9:30 p.m. ET/ 6:30 p.m. PT
Only in Labrador: An eccentric client hires CRB to build a fast and loud hot rod station wagon for his wife’s birthday. The guys drop a dragster engine and transmission into a beat-up ’69 wagon, top it off with a mean-looking tunnel ram, and scrounge racing slicks and new seats. They get creative in their attempt to meet the client’s needs on a short deadline.
LAST STOP GARAGE: “Hovercraft” Monday, Nov. 20 at 9 p.m. ET/ 6 p.m. PT
When a local journalist shows up with a busted hovercraft, the boys jump at the opportunity to get it flying again. Without time to find or order parts, they have to scrounge an engine and get it un-seized, repair a heavily damaged prop, and build a skirt out of local materials. The job is on track until the eleventh hour when they suffer a potentially catastrophic breakdown.
LAST STOP GARAGE: “Asphalt Truck”Monday, Nov. 20 at 9:30 p.m. ET/ 6:30 p.m. PT
Without any major paving operations in Labrador, a local entrepreneur wants to start recycling asphalt and taking on smaller jobs. The boys have to scrounge for metal tanks and a burner, build a giant asphalt oven, and mount it on a homemade trailer built from an abandoned pickup. The project is destined to overheat before the boys get the novel design figured out.
LAST STOP GARAGE: “Stage Coach” Monday, Nov. 27 at 9 p.m. ET/ 6 p.m. PT
A musician needs a tour vehicle so she can travel to Labrador villages, perform, and build her music career. With a limited budget, the boys build an all-in-one vehicle that serves as transportation, lounge, and performance space. They convert an old school bus, and build a fold-out stage while Leander and Ross scrounge and decorate a comfortable interior. And what music performance would be complete without pyro?
LAST STOP GARAGE: “Construction Barge” Monday, Nov. 27 at 9:30 p.m. ET/ 6:30 p.m. PT
The remote village of Mud Lake was left in a state of disaster after a severe flood. Without road access, the town needs to move waste out, and construction materials in, over the Churchill River. The CRB guys lead construction of a barge, while the community pitches in with materials. They salvage a truck engine, adapt it for marine use, and drop it into a heavy-duty homemade hull.
