Car Hunters follows the search for people’s dream classic car. In each episode we follow a new buyer, aided by a buddy or family member, as they check out three unique vehicles from top to bottom and hit the open road for a test drive. We share in the exhilaration and deliberation, but which new ride will they cruise home in?

It's up to Jim to decide which of these thrill rides will join the family.

Which car will come out on top?
