First aired in 2013 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2951514/
Quest Channel at 6pm, repeated following morning at 10.00.

Watched the first episode and thought it was quite good :)

Hi Andy,
Thanks for the heads up. It's good that classic car programmes seem to be less niche programming and more mainstream these days. That's good for us car fans. 8-) If only there was a programme that broadcast reports/reviews from classic car shows. That would be good.

:agree: From what I have seen of classic vehicle shows locally, they are pretty much family events and a T/V programme may be of interest.....

Great series and top quality work, with a good insight into the repairs and restoration etc.
Hardly any of the episodes show them going out and about hunting for or refurbishing parts, and there's no p*****g about.

IMO, Car SOS should be like this......

I really like this show. Some fantastic cars and really top notch builds. I know it's in Dollars but how the hell do people afford to throw the sorts of money at thier cars. Some good stories and really like the people involved. Dan really seems to care what he does and about the people. Very good show if people haven't seen it.
