The Discovery Channel announced it is currently seeking American classic car restorers to be a part of a new unscripted television series to be filmed in Cuba.

On the show, a team of fabricators, mechanics and painters will travel to Cuba and work with local restorers to find, restore and sell the island’s one-of-a-kind vintage vehicles that have been frozen in time for decades.

Per the casting call, “It doesn’t matter if you specialize in routine auto maintenance or full-car restoration. As long as you have an outgoing personality and experience working with classic and muscle cars – including body repair, paint, mechanical and interior restoration – we want to hear from you!”

The ability to speak Spanish is not required to participate in the series.

The Discovery Channel is also looking for auto brokers who can work out of their U.S. offices to help place, sell or auction off restored classic vehicles.

If interested, email [email protected] with your name, phone number, a recent photo and a brief description of your experience working with classic cars.

To join the Cuba-based cast, you must be at least 18 years of age, a U.S. resident and available to travel to Cuba for approximately five to six months starting in the spring/summer of 2016.
