So was that the one Andrew we saw at the CCI last year ?
That's it, yes. Hopefully they will show it being sold later in the series. That S will look superb once it's finished.

Just watch that Bangers and mash some nice capris shown but not sold thought the RS Escorts went cheap .
Imo, this is by far the best car programme that has been on T/V for a while :cheers:
:agree: Am really enjoying this series, nice family business, great to hear the stories of past & future owners as well as seeing the cars themselves. :applaud:

I see the flipping bangers boys are up to their old tricks!
I can't see the logic of spending money on new bumpers and other items, and also getting the wheels powder coated, once they'd made the decision not to finish the Beetle and to sell it as a project. I wouldn't have thought that they'd recoup what they spent on those bits.
I know they're working at the budget end of the market, but I can't believe they still don't inspect the cars properly before buying them. Maybe that is further evidence that it's all just make believe for the telly?

:agree:
Again, they had already made their minds up to buy it before they got there :? Maybe spending a little more on a better cars would make more sense.

I can understand why the did what they did but financially it didn't work, and it looks like the usual Ebay messers were at play again :doh:

Not one of their better episodes :( I wouldn't give up a day job to do it :lol:

I'll be sad to see the end of this series.
It's a pity that we didn't see any Capris featured, but it was a brilliant series nonetheless.

Not their finest hour, hope the series gets better, they're a really likeable pair but I wouldn't buy shares in their ventures just yet ;)

:agree: Rob,
They need to buy better cars to start with. Don't believe much of it anyway, MOT always pass with no mention of how much that cost and sure the 5 day thing is rubbish too.

Still watchable though :cheers:

Yet another car show to set your recorders for:
Thursdays at 10PM on Quest, and it's called Iron Resurrection.
I don't know much about it, it might be good, it might not but it's probably worth a try! :)

Flipping bangers, Yet more TV Bullshit. They'd be better off buying a barbeque and start flipping burgers - they'd probably then break into a profit.
