MotorTrend Group, a Warner Bros. Discovery company, today announced an all-new series, CUSTOM CAROLINA, will premiere Tuesday, November 21, 2023, at 10|9c on MotorTrend TV and MotorTrend+. CUSTOM CAROLINA takes viewers on a journey inside Tommy Pike Customs, a renowned automotive customization business located in South Carolina. With enthralling car builds and jaw-dropping transformations, business owner Tommy Pike fulfills clients' automotive dreams; whether it's a high-end, top-dollar project or a more modest endeavor. Working alongside his wife, Stephanie, and a team of skilled artisans, Pike operates from an expansive 30,000 square-foot restoration shop, dedicated to crafting and customizing bespoke masterpieces.
Pike's passion for building cars began in his early teenage years, and he has since become a celebrated craftsman known for his award-winning SEMA builds. For more than two decades, he has worked tirelessly to establish a shop recognized for exceptional workmanship and warm Southern hospitality. Throughout the series, Pike emphasizes the values of hard work, community engagement, and support for the thriving car culture in the Southeast, all from his home base in Greenville, South Carolina. Each episode of CUSTOM CAROLINA showcases Pike's unwavering commitment to his projects, making it a relatable and inspiring journey for the audience who will be wholeheartedly invested in his success.
In Pike's shop there is always a diverse range of vehicles under his care. Whether it's a late-'70s C-10, a classic '37 Dodge pickup, or a brand-new Porsche, they all await the "Tommy Pike Treatment."
Notable vehicles featured in the first season include:
1967 C2 Corvette
