Mike Musto's The House of Muscle Comes to Motor Trend OnDemand

New YouTube-Influencer-Hosted Show on TEN’s SVOD Service Will Cover the Past, Present, and Future of Muscle

LOS ANGELES, CA – December 1, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  TEN: The Enthusiast Network announced today its new Motor Trend OnDemand show, The House of Muscle, will premiere December 1, 2016. The House of Muscle takes a deep look inside the world’s continued obsession with muscle cars. Each month, the show’s host, YouTube sensation Mike Musto, will travel the U.S. and beyond showcasing how these automobiles—and their die-hard owners—help shape the face of today’s automotive culture. Every car has a past, and every owner a story. From homebuilt customs to priceless rolling works of art, Musto not only profiles the cars and their place in history, he takes these amazing machines on a no-holds-barred testdrive.

“We have created a show for muscle car fans around the world that showcases old and new muscle cars and what they mean to their often-fanatical owners,” says Musto. “I’m excited to welcome viewers to join us as we explore The House of Muscle.”

The first few episodes will take viewers on a 2,500-mile road trip from Los Angeles to Detroit via lots of Dodge muscle cars—and one very special van. Then, Musto will introduce you to a one-off private fleet of Chevy Novas before getting behind the wheel of an old-school Plymouth Belvedere, which just may be the world’s greatest Q car/street sleeper.

The show’s host, Mike Musto, rose to fame as the creator of his own muscle car show, BIG MUSCLE, on YouTube, receiving more than 50 million views to date. As host of the SiriusXM Radio show RPM, Musto gained a following for his no-nonsense style and straight-talking attitude about automobiles. Musto is also an automotive journalist and marketing consultant with more than 2,500 articles to his credit pertaining to automobiles and automotive culture for both online and print publications. Elsewhere, he is a high-performance driving instructor with the National Auto Sport Association and has been featured on such TV shows as Bullrun, MAVTV’s Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational, as well as Discovery Channel’s Fast N’ Loud.
