Paul Teutul Jr. certainly gave the fans and motorcyle enthusiasts at the International Motorcycle Show quite a shock on "American Choppers: Senior vs. Junior" (Mon., 9 p.m. ET on Discovery). His company, Paul Jr. Designs, partnered with Trans American Muscle and unveiled not a tricked out custom bike, but a tricked out custom car.
"Unquestionably they were expecting a bike, but I think it was good," Teutul said. "But, you know, this is where we're going. Other than the motorcycles, we're going to be expanding into things like this and we felt like this was a perfect first project."
It took the crowd a while to get over their surprise and shock and get on board what was unquestionably a beautiful car. In interviews afterward, several admitted that they weren't disappointed at all to see a car rather than a new bike.
"Our intention is to build 77 of these cars so it's a limited series," Teutul told the crowd, before introducing their partners in the project at Trans American Muscle. It's certainly a bold expansion of their signature line that could help Teutul find a whole new fan and customer base of car enthusiasts.
