There’s another classic :ford: on next weeks second episode. Unusually there are 2 buyers & the smiles per mile are obvious. Elo is still full of :turd: but he found a stunning hot hatch. Worth a look for this car only 8-)

In that case I won't give the game away. I will say that it's one of those episodes where they seem to do a lot of unnecessary work that will limit the appeal of the car at resale time.

Thanks for the heads up, Andy. I've never heard of this show, but I'll give it a pop to see if it's any good. :D

I stayed up to watch F&L. Unfortunately, the Lotus Cortina was barely mentioned in the show, however, the main focus was a Shelby Mustang, so it's not all bad! :)

Usually I watch it Saturday, but watched it last night too.
Lotus Cortina in original condition with 18000 miles :o

It's on Travel Channel at 4pm most weekdays, they have some nice cars :cheers:

Not my cup of PG!
The only new paint Brewer has never rubbed his hands on :doh:
I feel that I have seen the paint job before.....Maybe I saw it on Youtube sometime ago :?

No way was that a real buyer :roll:

I was thinking the same. Then I thought, if it was a fake buyer from the production crew, would they have chosen somebody who looked more like a typical 4x4 off-roader buyer? Then I asked myself if it was a double bluff.....

:agree: For me a bad episode except for the Jubilee Clip and bush trick :D

So they made £700....But after MB went to Germany to get the tyres, the flight, rental car etc they would probably have lost money :deadhorse:

That was a good little tip from Edd.
It was one of those episodes where they seem to go off on a tangent from the original brief of buy-restore-sell and spend money on needless modifications. Would the Panda really have appealed to the hardcore 4x4/ greenlaning crowd that tend to use traditional off-roaders? I don't know if it would. A bit of research on the internet reveals that there is quite a dedicated following for this car. Perhaps would have had a better chance of selling it (for real) if they'd restored it to standard.

Each to their own, but I just don't get off roading :? It would kill me to take a clean car through all that mud to then wash it only to find scratches and dents etc :crying:
