Count All The Ways The Reality Show Counting Cars Is Fake

Starting as the car expert on Pawn Stars, Danny “The Count” Koker quickly earned a following and his own TV series, Counting Cars. The History Channel series brings viewers inside Koker’s Las Vegas garage, Count’s Kustoms, where he buys, restores, and flips rare cars for a profit.

As it goes with most reality shows, quite a few aspects of Counting Cars are fake and staged, including the “random” on-the-spot car buys and Koker’s extensive car knowledge. Keep reading and count some of the many ways Counting Cars is fake.

Having rare and custom parts on-site is a trick for many car shows, including Counting Cars. This means Count’s Kustoms doesn’t actually have all of the parts on hand. The fact is, the series tends to use rare parts that might take days or weeks to track down.

So, having them in the shop during filming isn’t exactly plausible. But viewers can’t wait around for weeks while Danny and his crew to get the parts, so the process is edited together, making it seem like everything is right there in the shop.
