Borderline Customs in Tex Mex Motors: Is the Shop in El Paso, TX?

The Tex Mex Motors crew initially name their shop, Borderline Customs, in the season finale. However, no shop by the same name is located in El Paso, TX. Matter of fact, another shop by the same name is located in Brownsville, TX. Thus, we assume they were unaware about it and changed the name of their shop later.

Thanks to Netflix, car enthusiasts now have a new reality television program to binge-watch. Tex Mex Motors, the streamer’s most recent show about car restoration, has become an instant hit for Netflix as it ash already entered the Top 10 TV Show list not long after it premiered.

It follows a team of automobile specialists who operate out of El Paso, Texas, and have a four-month profit target of at least $250,000. They buy older, vintage cars that have been abandoned to rot in Mexican junkyards, transport them to the US, restore them, and then sell them.

On the other hand, we have recently discovered that many people have been curious to know where their shop named Borderline Customs is located. Well, we’ve got you covered.

In the eighth episode of the show, Rob Pitts aka Rabbit gathers the group as they are almost ready with the restoration of cars and sell them. He tells everyone that their shape has to have a name. Rabbit himself starts suggesting the name for their shop saying Nachos’ Garage.

Has Tex Mex Motors Been Renewed for Season 2?

If you’ve watched the eight episodes of Tex Mex Motors that are now available, you undoubtedly want more. In case you have been wondering if the show has been renewed for Season 2, Netflix has not decided the fate of the show as of this writing. And we can say it is not surprising at all.

After all, Netflix’s decision to renew or cancel a new series might take weeks or even months. However, Tex Mex Motors has had a successful start. Tex Mex Motors season 2 appears possible, thanks to a good launch that placed it in the Netflix Top 10 and its low cost as an unscripted series. The fact that there aren’t many automobile series on Netflix helps, so that might make this one stand out.

We will surely get back to you as soon as we get any further updates about the future of the show.
