Judging by what is shown on the trailer, it focuses on buyers who have to decide whether to buy a classic or modern car. It's called Modern Wheels or Classic Steals, the first series has twenty episodes and starts on the 17th at 8 PM.

Andrew.

I saw that advertised a couple of days ago....Will give it a go and hope the 'Presenters' aren't too annoying :?

9pm tonight on Quest, new series of Fifth Gear!!

The presenters seem OK, but whether they start to grate after twenty episodes remains to be seen....

Thanks for the reminder for Fifth Gear. :)

Well the woman on there is really starting to look her age as my wife told me but I said it’s because it’s in HD shows the lines .
I had a cup of tea with some ginger cake what was on offer in Sainsbury today .
Then I let the dog out for a piss and it was over . Fantom works was good and you missed a good show almost like car sos tonight .

It might be, as the Mark 2 in JPS colours was known as the "Le Cat Black" in the USA. Also available was the much rarer "Le Cat White".

Quest sometimes play a longer trailer now. The programme looks good, but the cars featured aren't classics for the man in the street, more like high-end stuff. I'll still give the show a try though.

Did not know that I love the 1.6 JPS we both have seen at the CCI meet as many people think they were all 3.0 and in black .

Talking about a white 1.6 JPS, I saw one out and about a while back (as in not at a show). I was very pleased as there can't be many in existence now.
