- Bristol, TN – Masters Entertainment Group, Inc. (MEG) announced, their TV series “Motorhead Garage” featuring Sam Memmolo, and Dave Bowman, formerly of Shadetree Mechanic and Two Guys Garage. The series debuted on Fox Sports Network (FSN) National Sunday, July 25, 2010 nationwide.

“We were extremely pleased to reunite this dynamic duo. Sam and Dave were the pioneers and originators of the “Automotive How To” programs,” stated Butch McCall, Executive Vice President of Masters. “They developed the concept of step by step “product installation” designed to help the automotive enthusiasts utilize the latest in aftermarket products.”

The series featured “Step by Step” instructions as each product installation was completed. The series is archived on Masters Entertainment Groups Internet Television Network at MotorHeadGarageTV.com.

Two Guys Garage expanded Sam's ability to take on projects that were not possible back at the old garage. He loves building and working on performance machines along with performing general automotive repair. Two Guys Garage Performance Shop gave more room to do all kinds of performance and dress-up projects and use more sophisticated equipment than the shadetree garage, all without bothering the neighbors.
