so there was 2 older OCC shows on just the last 2 hours,, I like the fabricating so I watch it,,

well,, in the first show the Old Man was in one of his rages, well LOL, he complained about the Tools being on the Tool Tray,,

????????,, did I miss something there ????

so the kid says "it's a Tool Tray""

the Old Man says ""I don't care""

yes it was a old show, but I think the Old Man was lucky that every one that worked for him didn't sue him for creating a Hostel Work place

now,, if you watch the new shows on Mondays, you will see the Old Man treats his new Team better than he treated his son's

I used to enjoy that show, but got tired of the old mans "child-like" tantrums. There is plenty of other entertainment out there without having to listen to him.

By the way, I met him and some of the guys a number of years ago. They were actually decent people back then and I actually got them to sign my t-shirt. From what I hear now, you're lucky if they'll even look at you at their appearances.

I guess fame has gone to their heads and can't be bothered with fans anymore.

If it ain't broke, go fly some more!

Me too Jimmy-boy

I watched the first four or 5 years then got sick of the same ole formula.

Now I find myself watching the newest incarnation of Paul Jr. on his own with Vinny--- if they can steal Rick from OCC -- OCC is ganna be hurtin Paul SR. is a "NutCase", all three sons have nothing to do with him.

I think his son Paul Jr is a nut case. He got fired because he could not get his butt to work on time and set his own schedule while at work.

After being an employer for a number of years, I know how that stuff can truly get under your skin.

The guy (Paul Jr) was a good fabricator. But he disrespected his father and his fathers business when he earned massive rewards from it at the same time. No matter how much is scripted. Both those sons have large, expensive homes and very nice trucks and cars.

Thats because of the opportunity their father provided them through his business that he started.

It cuts both ways. They disrespected each other. Pops started the place, but it was the sons designs that got them noticed.

+1 - The stuff the Dad now puts out is no where as nice and creative as it was when the son was involved...

Proud to have over 13 pages of Good Guy feedback.

Dang! I didn't know Vinnie & Cody had their own biz. IMO Rick is the most skilled fabricator of the bunch.

I do know, that I met a guy once that road with the guys, and he said the argument between the boys and the Oldman is real,,

as for the Oldman, even if it is scripted I don't know how he has the nuts to show his face in public or on Tv

Dennis, buddy,, as for Paul Jr not showing up on time, all I can say about that,, is,,

1, Paul is part owner

2, Paul Jr (as he said) he works as much as 70 hours a week

3, if Paul Jr comes in late at 9 and works in the Evening till 10 (4 hours over time) when his father is not there> he will get things done, cause the Old man is not there screaming at him

Vinnie hates the old man, but there was one instance when the old man put a roof on Vinnie's home.

Cody hates the old man but there was an instance when the old man built a bike with Cody and then gave it to him.

Now, Mikey. What a piece of garbage. He expresses the terms by which he will only talk to his father. This kid can't paint, has no job skills, only money he ever had was from dad.

Scripted, yes. Jason steams over to the bike stand and throws frame with motor onto the floor!

If you guys watched the show where the guy who is their filming the show says that if it wasent for the break up the show would of ended.

The show was getting bad ratings and due to the amount of money it was making OCC being on TV OCC knew they had to come up with an idea that would put the ratings back up.

As a business owner myself if I was in that kind of deal with a tv show that helped my sales and the show was about to cancel do to low ratings I would find ways to get the ratings back up, what better way to do that then to show a break up and at the same time double up the sales of bikes in the market, one from OCC and also from Paul Jr designs.

Come on everyone lets all agree its all about the mighty dollar and how to keep it coming in.
I'll bet a million bucks they still talk and find ways to keep the ratings high on the show.
Notice how Paul Jr's wife does no camera time never once do I see her talking to the camera ever.

I dont think the TV show is making it up, I beleive the OCC family is making it up, if its not that way then it would make it to obvious.

I agree, but no way to prove me wrong either.
Nor no way to prove me right.

Unless I was a family friend of the OCC clan.

Before moving to Phoenix I lived up nor'east. I worked for a guy who is one of the top 10 airbrushers on the planet and one of the founding members of one of the biggest airbrushing magazines in circulation. He is close friends with OCC's old painter and talks to him all the time. He explained to me in detail stories from 'that old painter' about what really goes on behind closed doors at OCC.

The short answer to protect the innocent and keep trash where it belongs is that Sr is seriously unstable, disrespectful and has moved now to entitlement. He's lost over half of the folks that helped him get where he is. 'That old painter' no longer paints for Sr and has said openly that he will never work for Sr again. A lot of the drama you see on TV is actually the real ass of Sr coming out in public. He really IS like that. And he will die a lonely man because of it. Sad that his ego means more to him that his own flesh and blood family.

So yeah, it's real. Sad but true. The names referred to above you may know. Please allow them their privacy.
