Is it as the name suggests, all JL's own personal cars featured on the programme?
I had heard that he does have an amazing car collection.

A gearhead as the Americans say. It doesn't have the same ring to it as petrolhead, in my opinion.

:agree: There are some interesting cars still to come in this series, although next up is a Fiat Panda...
Nice Rover, I like the P5B although I prefer the slightly sleeker look of the coupe.

Caught the last 2 minutes of tonight first MWCS episode, and worked out straight away she would choose the BMW....Women of a certain age will always pick mod cons over a classic :roll: :sleepy: :sleepy:

I can't believe that she had any intention of buying a classic in the first place. She just didn't seem the type.

I started watching it today. I don't know if it was a particularly bad episode or not, but I switched over after 10 minutes as it seemed to be all about tanks...

Had something else to watch so missed it.
Sounds like you may have picked a rogue episode if you don't like tanks :?

I hope so as I'm going to give Jay another go next week. It's his last chance, so he'd better come up with the goods! :D
