Production history[edit]

Counting Cars is an American reality television series, shown on History, and produced by Leftfield Pictures. The series is the third spinoff of the TV series Pawn Stars, following American Restoration and Cajun Pawn Stars. It is filmed in Las Vegas, Nevada, where it chronicles the daily activities at Count's Kustoms, an automobile restoration and customization company owned and operated by Danny Koker, who previously appeared as a recurring expert on Pawn Stars. In a format similar to American Restoration, the series follows Koker and his staff as they restore and modify classic automobiles and motorcycles, and also documents the occasional conflict among the cast members.

The opening title sequence features Koker narrating the following introduction:

Vegas is a gambling town. Most people bet with chips. I bet with rides. And I always go all in. I'm Danny, aka the Count and this is my all-star team. We find 'em, fix 'em, flip 'em and sometimes, I keep 'em. For my crew, every job is high stakes, and we can't afford to lose. This is Counting Cars.

The series made its debut on History on Monday, August 13, 2012, at 10:30 pm ET after Pawn Stars, before assuming its regular time slot on Tuesdays at 10 pm ET, beginning on August 14, 2012.[4][5]
