Mat Mershimer is a straight 'A' high school student, volunteers in search and rescue and is an Eagle Scout. He also drives his grandfather's old '88 Chevy pickup truck that's seen better days. Mat's dad, Jim, contacted the Overhaulin' A team because ... (more)he would like Mat, who is always doing nice things for others, to have something nice done for him for a change. But we can't make it that easy for Mat. And we need to get a hold of that truck! Our host Chris Jacobs poses as a tow truck operator who comes to Mat's house to tow away the truck because straight-as-an-arrow Mat has too many parking tickets. Eagle Scout Mat has never gotten a ticket in his life but with some help from his father Jim, as our insider, away goes Mat's truck to our Overhaulin' garage. And little does Mat know but we've got Nascar driver Robby Gordon helping the A Team out, too! Chip Foose, our Overhaulin' A Team leader, starts designing the plans for one amazing search and rescue vehicle while we continue to play a few more tricks on unsuspecting Mat. It seems that tow truck guy who took Mat's truck is actually the leader of a car thief ring! Mat thinks he's never going to see his beloved pickup truck ever again. But what does Mat see in the garage when he's invited to take a tour of Robby Gordon's Speed Shop? No way can that be his old truck! Will all the pain, and pranking, that Mat's endured be worth it once he sees his new search and rescue vehicle?
