Courtney Hansen spends her weekends on SpikeTV's Powerblock, hosting two solid hours of back-to-back programming. Hansen hosts Spike's "Powerblock: HorsepowerTV," "Trucks!," "MuscleCar" and "Xtreme 4x4." Coming May 7, 2011, RTM Productions adds a new neighbor to the automotive how-to block—"Search & Restore."

Hansen can be seen promoting the new show in a trailer appearing both online and on SpikeTV. In the preview, the network declares that "Search & Restore" resurrects the power of performance. In this new addition to the Powerblock, the focus will be on family treasures and lost causes, all brought back to life. From coast to coast, volunteer teams of pros will donate their time restoring rides nationwide to those worthy of a helping hand.

Exclusively seen on Spike TV, "Search & Restore" is a show for automotive enthusiasts, produced by RTM Productions. RTM is a full-service television production company specializing in automotive, outdoor and entertainment programming. The company employs a staff of 42, including executive staff, administration, sales, producers, writers, talent, videographers, editors and graphic artists.

Custom rods, rock crawlers and A-list celebrities, including Chip Foose and Mario Andretti, have all appeared on SpikeTV's "Powerblock." Stay tuned to Spike for new episodes of your favorite automotive programming, and watch this spring as "Search & Restore" takes the dream of auto restoration and makes it a reality.
