“Find It. Fix It. Flip It”. That’s the motto that Jeff Allen and Perry Barndt, stars of CNBC Primetime’s first reality show “The Car Chasers” live by. They travel the country looking to buy and sell cars. Their business, Flat 12, is all about buying low and selling high. Highstakes automobile gambling at it’s best!
“Whether it’s a rare Shelby Mustang or a vintage hot rod, the key is buy low and sell high, something that doesn’t always happen. Selling cars is a dangerous business…but perhaps there’s no greater danger than negotiating with your own dad. Tom Souter, Jeff’s dad, runs a classic car dealership right around the corner from Jeff’s shop in Lubbock, Texas. They are not just regular trading partners; they are trading partners hell-bent on one-upmanship”.
Here “The King Of Kamelot” sits down #InTheLab with Jeff, Perry, and “The Brains” of the operation Meg, to talk about their unique operation at Flat 12, what’ it’s like to be one of the first 2 reality shows that CNBC has ever rolled out, the role that each one of the members plays in the business and on the show, working with Jeff’s father Tom on deals, selling which car made Jeff almost tear up, and soo much more! Enjoy Kade Nation.
