Miller Partners with Discovery Channel for Motor City Motors

Discovery Channel's new show Motor City Motors matches a team of automotive builders with Miller welding, cutting and fume extraction equipment, testing their creative ingenuity over a five-day custom build in competition for $5,000 in tools.

Miller Electric Mfg. Co. partners with The Discovery Channel to bring you the newest extreme automotive TV show Motor City Motors. The show follows Dave and James Kaye, a.k.a. The Detroit Brothers, as they showcase Detroit’s finest metalworking specialists in a five day contest to transform an old vehicle into something unique and powerful. Each team is equipped with Miller welding, cutting and fume extraction equipment to complete the challenge in five days.  

Vital to each build on Discovery Channel’s new show Motor City Motors, this Millermatic 252 MIG welder is a regular performer around the Detroit Brother's shop.
The prize package for each episode’s winning team includes five Millermatic 211 Auto-Set MIG packages OR Diversion 165 TIG packages, along with a Miller welding helmet, welding gloves and combo jacket. Challenges include transforming a Chevy Suburban into a pothole filling machine, and combining a military truck with a combine to create the ultimate corn processing machine. Motor City Motors airs Monday nights at 10 p.m EST/PST, 9 p.m. CST.

“Motor City Motors gives us an opportunity to showcase our craft while also stimulating the industry and the city that we love. It’s not always easy, but we take great pride in every custom vehicle that comes out of this shop. We’re excited to share that with other designers, metalworkers and artists. We rely on the Miller welders and equipment to make that happen.” — Dave and James Kaye: The Detroit Brothers

“Motor City Motors exemplifies the ingenuity and work ethic that makes Detroit the center of the automotive industry in the U.S." said Vickie Rhiner, brand manager, Miller Electric Mfg. Co. "We’re excited to help showcase the talents of skilled craftsmen and stimulate the imaginations of custom automakers everywhere.”
