In a small town, he’s a business mogul fueled by hard work,

family values and the Great American Dream…




New Series Premieres Monday, July 8 at 10 p.m. on HISTORY®


New York, NY, June 3, 2013 – Seven years ago, a stranger pulled into a sleepy farming community somewhere along the Kansas-Missouri border and bought himself a rundown car dealership.  Before long, he was king of a business empire built out of adrenaline, family values and red-hot patriotism.


GOD, GUNS & AUTOMOBILES, a new half-hour series premiering Monday, July 8 at 10 p.m. on HISTORY, follows Mark Muller and his brother and business partner, Chicago radio personality Eric “Mancow” Muller as they run their throwback auto dealership, Max Motors.  Located in the tiny rural town of Butler, Missouri, Muller makes car deals the old fashioned way.  A true American Original, he’s fueled by a larger-than-life personality and turbo-charged attitude.


Mark Muller lives by three rules: Do the Right Thing, Let’s Make a Deal, and Live Every Day Like it’s Your Last. He’s been known to blow up cars and stage a fake UFO landing to drive sales…but he’s just as likely to cut a break for a cash-poor farmer in need of a car.


Joined by an oddball staff that work the deals and his wife Amy and sons, Max Motors embodies the values and spirit of the heartland of America.


GOD, GUNS & AUTOMOBILES is produced for HISTORY by Zone3.  Austin Reading is Showrunner.  Michael Kronish, Isabelle Anouk Bourduas and Michel Bissonnette are Executive Producers for Zone3. Tim Healy is Executive Producer for HISTORY.

    Every day I ask, “Please History, can we have just one more ignorant reality game show?”

  • cra

    History should really changed it’s name. There is very little history on History any more.

  • JFC

    Once again the phrase “just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse”, comes to mind.

  • Ray

    Unfortunately I don’t think people watch regular History documentaries anymore. Discovery just had a WWII special that had basically 0 viewers… I can’t blame History. I blame society.

  • CCBaxter

    If you are intersted in docs, you can watch H2, Military History, or Bio network. That stuff is all out there.

  • BS

    I think History Channel hired the same people who ruined MTV. How long before we get History Teen Mom and The History of the Kardashians? Way to completely destroy a once great channel.

  • Gunnergoz

    You have to be kidding me. The History Channel is now providing a bully pulpit for the far right’s birther/truther/comspiracy lunatics like Mancow? There is nothing less historical and more hysterical than the ranting and raving that this guy loves to put out. Why give him the platform to spread his hate and fear? Why, History Channel? Because a few thousand midwest crazies will watch this to pick up on the latest fantastical made-from-whole-cloth ravings this guy pulls out of his Whatever? Have you no shame, History Channel?

  • TFB

    I thought Mancow was an idiot. His brother Mark is a way bigger idiot than him. This show is a joke. I agree with everything Gunnergoz said above.

  • silas

    This show is not for the history channel in fact it’s not for any channel.Who wants to see a bunch of rednecks acting like a bunch of fools.Oh im sure some Budweiser redneck will love this show they will laugh at some idiot blowing up a car will love this mindless show but history come on people what are you thinking need i say more.

  • MachinegunJesus

    I never thought it would be possible but History pulled it off. Congratulations, you managed to pinpoint just about everything that is wrong with America. Although I am against gun control in any form it is people like Ted Nugent and this guy that makes me question my very own viewpoints on the subject. In my opinion guns and Jesus just seem to be at odds with each other and if he truly loves America as much as he says, why does he show such a great disrespect towards his environment and the laws in place?

  • Robert

    I live in Butler and know Mark personally. Honestly, he has an incredibly poor reputation and is considered pretty odd. I will admit that he is a lot of fun to be around and you can’t help but like the guy. Mark is your crazy Uncle that is fun to be around for short stretches before you go back to your normal life. Erich is a bit of a whiny ass too consumed with his own ego.
    The town of Butler is quiet, beautiful and full of God fearing people that don’t want to draw attention to themselves. Mark definately stands out. I watched the show and all of it’s overblown drama. It’s entertaining but has little to nothing to do with how average Midwesterners feel or act.

  • John C

    I watched both episodes last night and thought they were great. All of these self appointed guardians of television should lighten the hell up.

  • Cam B

    I haven’t even watched this show and I know it will be a big one with the folks around my town in St. Louis, unfortunately since they all like duck dynasty.

  • The Anointed One

    “… connect viewers with history …”

    Evidently, “truth in advertising” doesn’t apply to networks.

  • dickey

    now I see that Mancow’s BS is genetic. Is he even on the radio anymore? Used car salesman fits his personality perfectly. Did anyone notice if there were black helicopters following him on the show?
