Default Car SOS TV programme

Does anyone else watch this, I cant believe the extent they go to on some of the cars they are doing over, lasts nights BMW 2002 Turbo which was rotten but they rebuilt it to what looked like a

very high quality restoration. Must cost a fortune to make the entire series. Really enjoyable to watch especially the reveals.

Yes a regular watcher of this program, got it on series link so I don't miss any!! Tim Shaw is a bit of a pain at times, however Fuzz is pretty good at the actual mechanical/body restoration work.

Yes best car resto program on TV knocks socks off WD. The reveals are sometimes quite emotional and bring a limp to your throat. I agree the level of restoration is astonishing sometimes where anyone else would just give in and admit defeat but not these guys if there is a will there is a way seems to be their motto.

Agreed. Watched the r33 reveal at the NEC Classic on tv yesterday - not a dry eye in the house

Default car sos

my mates 62 tr4 is on soon,28 feb on national geographic.he lives close to bruntingthorpe where they filmed the show and had no idea what was going on as his lads had kept everything secret and kell thinking he was on the way to a track day.the car had been in a barn for many years and was rotten.i recently visited him and the car is immaculate ,they left as much of it originall as possible but still a ground up restoration.there is a good scene of kell sat in his car stroking the wheel looking totally overwhelmed ,good show.

Strange episode last night - a bit too "top gear" but interesting seeing other parts of the motor museum you don't normally see.
