    I'm not a car guy but I really enjoy the show. Anyone ever been? Is it worth it? How long did you stay? What did you do/see?

    I've never been, but count me in as wanting to know as well. Been thinking about going during next trip. I think it's right off the north strip just past the Wynn. So, it appears to be an easy trip.

    There isn't a lot to see there if you aren't into cars or bikes. There is no guided tour, just a self-guided wander around the areas of the shop you are allowed in. It was free, I enjoyed it, spent maybe 20 minutes there. But, I'm a car guy. YMMV. Here's a detailed writeup I did a couple months ago: http://LasVegasOffStrip.com/counts-kustoms-the-reality-tv-tour-continues/

    I'm not really a car guy...but I do enjoy the show. Thanks for letting us know how much time to give for it (approx 30 minutes).

    I do enjoy to see different sights, even it it's not my 'thing', so I am strongly considering checking it out.

    Other reviews I have read mentioned that you should call in advance because there might be filming happening and you might have to wait. Did you experience that?

    I went in Feb and seen Scott the shop manager. I enjoyed the "tour" and they actually encourage you to take all the pics you want.

    No, I have been twice and I never experienced a wait. I suppose it's possible, but the place is not that far out of the way from either the strip or downtown so I don't think it would be a bug deal to chance it.

    In addition, I gathered from the show that Count owns/is affiliated with Vamp'd bar. Looked it up and it looks like a decent place. I am not sure if Count is ever there. Anyone been, it seems like they have a lot of live music.

    If you go see Vito77 at Vamp'd, then Danny will be on stage. Hard to miss him then. :)
