What about Post -Junkyard Wars-Contestant Withdrawal Syndrome?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

Sure, Art Attack is still Flying High. Second Victory, rumors of "Time Magazine", Even if they win the final, in a couple of weeks, maybe a little more, they'll be "Jonesin'" just like the rest of us, their defeated comrades, the Metal Medics. Some Ambulance show will have taken over the time slot. No more cool e-mail, radio spots, naked teenage girls screaming "Stop it! Stop it! Let me go!"...sigh...Was it all worth it? Was it worth the anticipation? The trip to England? Being on worldwide Television? Meeting all those crazy people? Having to face defeat in an eternity of re-runs? Would we do it again? Sure..It's the only thing that keeps us going..sigh, (again) Silly Later,,,,,,Alex Metal Medics

Perhaps they will find consolation in fixing toasters and using potatoes to remove light-bulb screws from electrical sockets. God only knows, their wives will find innumerable challenges for them. }=]

It's funny Alex, I was thinking of that same thing. This show gets under your skin! After you do it, you want more.....I imagine all the teams must want to get their hands on some more junyard wars building. There will have to be an alumni show....Pitting teams who had never went up against each other....

I haven't had time for withdrawal yet, I don't know if I'm the only one that is having this problem ( it's not really a problem ), but, i am getting about 60 E-mail letters a day off the boards. The first 48 hours after our show I had over 600, besides the boards. We are ready for a rest. Would we do it again absolutely, without question. We would prefer to go to England, that was part of the attraction for us and part of the attraction of the show. Since I have 3 grandchildren in LA they would like it if I came out there to do it again.

Take me for another round too, no matter where it is, and thank goodness, junk is junk anywhere you find it. "Mind the gap" was a big part of the excitment for me as well though. I have also been answering a lot of email, and have been in the local spotlight everywhere that I go, with everyone that I know and a lot that don't know me talking about the show. A "new" swamp buggy built from 1930 Ford parts, and a home built steam engine (most likely air operated) are next on my toy box want list. I have never had so much fun in one week and with so little sleep. I feel honored to have been chosen to be among the FEW,the BRAVE, and the JUNKIEST!

I know what you're saying. I am now obsessed with this stuff from just watching!. Imagine what it's like playing with all that cool junk and then suddenly having to stop!!! Wow!!!
