I know the show canceled in 2012 but they made a new show. The new show aired until a few months ago, then the show disappeared again. I miss that show. What a great show that was even if they argued a lot. Really sad they can't bring back the show and focus on both Jr and Sr building bikes, but separately. It was an awesome show.

I talked to Vinnie in Birmingham back in 2012. Quite the conversation. Hes a CTSV fan. Been a while since I talked him last now that I think of it.

I think out of all the so called stupid reality shows the last 17 years as they started this type of show around 2000, OCC was the best I think. It's sad the show is no longer on the air. One has to wonder if OCC can generate the same income as they did on the show. If I recall Discovery paid them very well, like around $10M annually plus profits from independent bike builds and other bonuses.

After growing up in that town, the shady shit they did caught up to them. They pissed it all away.

They weren't exactly well liked. I believe they still have their facilities in Newburgh, NY. Just no tv show.

Please enlighten me. I had no idea. Everyone on the show seemed like good people. Family business is not easy so the bickering and yelling is normal. I really miss the show. Reality shows are garbage but OCC was the exception.

I don't understand this..... I knew a few people on the show, not naming names. Granted there was a ton of problems within the family, but shady shit?.... I know nothing of this.

I never cared for Vinnie. Dude seems like your typical NY Guido and if it were not for Paul Sr. hiring Vinnie back in the day Vinnie would prolly be working at a Gas Station. Just saying. Everyone hates the boss in small business, this is normal, so everyone hates Paul Sr. Blame it all on Paul Sr. This make a lot of sense alright.

Rick and Paul Sr. seem like the only top level guys at OCC today and I don't blame Paul Sr. for firing his son Pauly.

Doesn't seem like Vinnie does much with Bikes anymore, mostly works on Trucks!

I always liked Rick, he did nice work and tried to stay out of the Drama!

Was at the OCC show-room a few months ago. It's still there, definitely quite the place, and you have to wonder how they continue to fund it.

It's a shame father and son couldn't work together. I definitely think Paul Jr. had the creative edge that really pushed things to the level they reached at their peak. Definitely some wrongs on both sides of the fence there.

Rick was one super cool Cat ... Paul Sr. I like also. Paul Sr. is demanding sure, but what small business owner isn't? Have you ever owned and operated a small business today? NOT easy!
