History Channel reality show to feature a Four State business - KOAM TV 7

History Channel reality show to feature a Four State business

Updated:

On Monday at 9 p.m. the History Channel will air a show entitled "God, Guns and Automobiles", which features a man and auto dealership in Butler, Missouri.

Seven years ago Mark Muller moved to Butler to start Max Motors.  A few years later he made the national news for offering a free AK-47 with the purchase of a vehicle.  Now Muller, along with his radio personality brother, are stars of the History Channel's latest reality TV show.

"Everyone thinks of car dealers as crooks and we've earned that, in the car business," Muller tells us.  "But it's a show about doing the right thing, about treating people good, about redemption, and most important of all, about the American way."

Though Muller says some misconceptions about the show include that it's only about what he calls 'hillbilly antics and guns' he says his show is really about four things.

"God, country and family, my business comes fourth, but first has got to be your God and then your country, and then your family," says Muller.  "I want them to put their family ahead of the dealership and then from there we just try to sell cars and have fun."

The new reality show wrapped filming last week and had film crews following Muller and his employees four months prior.  In a town the size of Butler word travels fast and the locals have mixed feelings about the new publicity.

"Great news to hear that a little town like this can have something happen that is so exciting and to kind of make us a little more well known," says Butler resident Carri Appleby.

"Telling people, you know, that Butler used to be a small rinky-dink town until he got here and things started getting bigger, and I don't honestly see how him having a car dealership in Butler makes Butler all that great," says Butler resident Cody McCully.

Though Muller says he has only seen clips of the edited show he plans on watching with the remote and family only, no Hollywood style viewing party.

Though Muller says he was originally glad to see the back end of the camera crew, he says now he thinks he's ready to sign on for season two.
