MIAMI, Oct. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- MEXICANICOS, returns to Discovery en Espanol with new restorations and exclusive creations by the talented mechanic Martin Vaca.  MEXICANICOS (#mexicanicos) will air on Discovery en Espanol Mondays at 10PM E/7PM P starting November 9 as part of the 'Lunes de motores' programming block, and on the Discovery Channel in Mexico starting November 10.

Whether it's repairing, transforming or building a brand new limousine, hearse or hot rod in his Guadalajara workshop, no project is too big for this authority on motor vehicles and his team.  "Cars are my life and I'm always trying to outdo my previous creations," Martin Vaca acknowledges.  "Some people think I'm crazy when I get ideas like building a car with a pool inside or converting a Boeing 727 into a limousine, but that's what makes us unique.  If it has wheels and an engine, we'll take on the challenge."

Season Two of MEXICANICOS features a number of special guests, including regional Mexican music legend Lupillo Rivera.  A classic car aficionado, Rivera travels from California to ask Martin to restore a 1954 GMC pickup truck he covets for his extensive and sophisticated collection.  In another episode, charismatic Chivas de Guadalajara soccer player Angel Reyna visits the workshop with a project as eccentric as he is: personalizing his pickup to look like a luxury car.  Both challenges will put Martin's skills and creativity to the test.

Two new team members also join the show this season: Martin's daughter, Isabel, charged with coming up with a new, more modern image and business model for 'Vaca Limousines,' one of Mexico's largest conversion workshops for customized hearses and limousines; and a new designer, David Hernandez.  They lead a team of 60 employees who work on 30 vehicles at a time each day, turning out some of the automotive world's most innovative creations.
