The final episode’s challenge is building a “completely out-of-the-box, over-the-top” exhibition car based on a 1941 Willys Coupe. The customized vehicle is described as being able to “make tracks like no other car.”

Cain arrives for a visit as do the show’s top 3, “Show Us Your Ride” finalists.

ToyMakerz is broadcast on the HISTORY Channel and FYI, in partnership with A+E Networks.
