Watch Noah Alexander and his team of master craftsman produce new builds and creations inside their St. Louis based auto shop – New episodes premiering June 13 on Velocity Channel

St. Louis (June 2018) – Noah Alexander and his crew at Classic Car Studio, a St. Louis-based auto shop specializing in building high-performance machines that combine classic lines with modern technology, are revving their engines in preparation of season two of “Speed is the New Black,” airing on the Velocity channel on Wednesday, June 13, 2018 at 9pm ET/PT.

Following its debut in 2017, “Speed is the New Black” has become Velocity’s most watched freshman series ever. Thanks to this popularity, Velocity has renewed the series for a second season to continue to give fans what they crave, the driver’s holy trinity – speed, style and performance.

“We focus on showcasing the technical side of car building,” said Noah Alexander, owner of Classic Car Studio.  “We talk shop, not drama and build cars that not only look great, but run great too. We enjoy producing legitimately awesome restorations that keep our clients coming in and fans inspired.”

This season “Speed is the New Black” will feature all styles of custom restorations. In the first episode, Dale Stewart, bassist of the internationally-loved rock band Seether, will bring Classic Car Studio the shell of a 1931 Model A Ford. Stewart wants to turn the Model A into a mean-looking, open wheel hot rod with a big engine that he can cruise around in when he’s not entertaining millions on tour.

Additional highlights for season two include a diverse selection of projects. These include a 1957 Chevrolet Nomad Wagon built to rival the performance of modern day sports cars, a 1965 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible modified with a five-speed transmission, a 2005 Chevy SSR with a Nelson Racing Engines twin turbo GM Performance LSX and air ride suspension, a 1970 Ford F100, a 1953 Chevy Truck, a 1970 BMC Mini Cooper, a 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle and a 1986 Chevrolet C10 Truck.

Asylum Entertainment and NoCoast Originals produce “Speed is the New Black” for Velocity. Peter Neal is executive producer and Robert S. Scanlon is executive vice president and general manager of Velocity and Automotive Content.

Headquartered in the North American Midwest, Classic Car Studio is centrally located for nation-wide, as well as, international transportation purposes and has among the greatest access to top condition American classics and special interest collectibles of any retailer in the United States.
