Stacey David

Stacey David has his own custom shop called The Rattletrap that specializes in engine building, custom paint, suspension work, metal fabrication and everything in between. In the late 1990s he hosted and produced a new TV show called Trucks where he designed and built fantastic rides. That show became one of Spike TV’s highest rated shows. Today his successful Gearz television show is on the Velocity channel and MAV TV. His website and Stacey David’s Gearz Nation is a fantastic place for gear heads and automotive enthusiasts to go and learn tech tips, watch episodes, shop for cool products and have fun in the Gearz garage. Stacey’s favorite catch phrase is “What are you working on?”

  1. After the 1st show I watched, I was hooked. The projects were unlike any other and made me a faithful follower, right until the show went off the air. I really miss it.

  2. I have been watching for years and I believe Stacy has the most hands on helpful car show on TV. My problem is finding his show on TV. Unless I’m missing something I would like to see regular time slot shows that run in succession.

  3. Great interview! Ive been a Stacey David fan since TRUCKS began. I now live in the Nashville area and have hopes of being able to meet a hero! By all accounts he is a “real guy”. Thanks for the great podcast and thanks to Stacey for his work and deceny.

  4. What’s going on Stacey , A better alternative to burning the plastic end, cut the end even with the lock on the plastic tie, a lot of car show judges like them cut even so as you said on the show won’t cut the P@#$ out of you . and if your into burning the end get yourself a Soldering gun with replaceable tips with a nylon rope cutting end ( a flat blade verses a tip, and not a soldering tip, or wand), this will also solve the problem of having a lighter around gasoline, alcohol, and methanol.

  5. I enjoy this show, wish it was around when I was in my Garage. My times were self taught, wiring, interiors, body, paint and mechanics. I’m now in my 60’s living in apartment and retired. No old cars, or hotrods. My heart still craves to be in thier so I’ve built an old tank schwinn and a three wheeler Columbia. I’d love to fix up an old S-10 to take my bikes out to some shows. Maybe even an old Chevy stepside.

  6. Hi Stacey I’m working on my 67 chevelle my dad left to me it has electrical problems that are driving me crazy,i was driving the car and hit a bump and the car list all power no lights or anything trying to find a way outta this mess need some advice.

  7. Hi Stacey; I try to watch you as much as I can when I am not working, I do enjoy the way you mix it up covering alot of different projects. There is one thing I would like to know if you could help me with, I am restoring a 1960 Chevy Impala 2 DRHT 348 3 deuce ,4 speed, Roman Red with red and white Houndstooth interior all factory. I am restoring this car to original. No aftermarket anything. The problem I am having is not being able to find anyone that will restore the anodized aluminum. This is all the interior trim, grille head light rings, eyebrow moldings bumper filler molding, hood lip molding grill badge and some other aluminum pieces. I have found companies that do aluminum anodizing but they will not do restoration. If you know anybody that will restore these and do top quality work please let me know. Keep up the great job with your show. Thanks Ray Kerinbrook.
