Johnny Depp, Amber Heard and a 1968 Ford Mustang Will End Overhaulin’

Johnny Depp  has many talents beside being one of the greatest actors in Hollywood, such as rocking the hell out of that electric guitar he sometimes plays. It does come as a surprise, however, to see 52-year-old actor involved in the restoration of a classic Ford Mustang. Sure, that muscle car is his much-younger wife’s first ride and yes, he will have her father’s help with it.

As the title of this post points out, we are referring to the final episode of Velocity’s automotive reality TV show Overhaulin’. Throughout its 11-year journey, people saw their beloved vehicles brought back to life as the car tuner Chip Foose would take care of the work. All things petrolhead-related have an end, and this car show is no exception.

To make sure they get out in a proper way, they built one last great scenario that features a classic American. According to Yahoo TV, the show will premiere its final season on November 4, with an epic build for the mark, Amber Heard, and the 1968 Mustang she bought when she was a teen. Believe it or not, her father, David Heard, serves as the "insider," along with the husband, Johnny Depp.

For those who haven’t followed the show, you should know that the show’s concept is similar to MTV’s West Coast Customs, as in there is a car that eventually gets restored and customized. The difference here is that they play a good cop-bad cop game that regularly nominates an unknowing “victim” - the mark - to be “Overhauled” by his or her family or friends - the insiders.

They also have a soft spot for old and tired antique cars, which is also the case with the last episode of the series. The restoration of the Stang took one year and judging by the photos taken on set, the outcome clearly amazes Amber, who can’t stop smiling.

The final season of Overhaulin’ premieres Nov. 4 at 9 p.m. on Velocity.
