I`d be genuinely interested if anyone could actually try to compile a list of ALL the shows, inc. American, related to modding/restoration, which are currently on air (or have been in the last year.) I honestly can`t keep track of them now, there must be 20 odd at least across a dozen channels? Compared to a decade ago = TG and 5th gear.
Car SOS, Wheeler Dealers, Flipping Bangers, Strippers Cars For Cash, Bangers and Cash, Find It Fix It Drive It, Lazy Boy Garage, Yanni Super Car Customiser, Fantom Works, Sin City Motors, Overhaulin, Counting Cars, Chasing Classic Cars, Car Chasers and I know there are more I can't think of....
Oh, Fast N' Loud

WOW, thanks for that Andy, it`s unbelievable really, seems to be an endless source of material. What was the one with the 5.0 Capri - Goblin Garage that`s another!

What was the one with the bald cockney and the Canadian, is that in the list? That IMHO, was one of the most contrived things I`ve ever seen.
Oh, there was one used to be on in the afternoon, an ex-pat in Spain `The Garage` And another one with the lesbians.... Oh no that was a dream.... :D

Steve is definitely correct when he says that in a few years we've gone from having only two fairly dire car shows to a situation where we're spoilt for choice. I'd go as far as saying there are too many now, and we have to be selective about which ones we have time to watch.

Must admit I`ve always fancied a Midget, very, very nice little car, and you don`t see that many on the road: MGBs onthe other hand have never really appealed, though Deb loves `em. MGAs - YES!

JUst a couple more: Mike Brewer had a trading show before WD, offered 3 used cars to punter, (maybe Edd had small part tarting up their PX???) What was that called?
And, recently the one with the *** girl and the weird, one name, ex model guy Modern Wheels Classic Steals/Deals?
That`s 22 I think.

What did you say this time? :xd:

The missing posts are probably a result of the recent forum upgrade that Beakster mentioned in another thread.
