Cameras roll on Last Car Standing for Discovery Canada

The car competition series, an original format from Proper Television, follows Discovery finding a popular hit in Canada's Worst Driver.

Proper Television found the country’s biggest road hazards as part of its popular Canada Worst Driver series for Discovery Canada.

Now the indie producer has started production on Last Car Standing, also for Discovery Canada, an elimination-style car competition series to find the most atrocious cars on the country’s roads.

Each of the eight one-hour episodes ordered by Discovery pits the owners of five atrocious vehicles against one another to see which car is best.

After each race, one driver is eliminated and forced to watch as their favourite jalopy gets impaled on the “spike of shame.”

The last-car-standing gets a $10,000 restoration, along with the bragging rights for its owner.

The series, an original format for Proper Television, will be filmed in Ontario through September, with Last Car Standing to bow winter 2013.

The series is executive produced by Guy O’Sullivan, with Blair Ricard producing and Wayne Moss and Joey Case as the series directors.
