New Car Programme on TV Soon

Post by Andrew 2.8i »

Hi,
There's a new Wheeler-Dealers type car show starting on Friday 6th April at 9PM on Blaze.
The first episode features a Triumph Spitfire, but you never know, there might be some classic Fords involved somewhere in one of the future episodes. Apparently, the run is for 10 programmes.

Thanks Andy,
I forgot to mention the most important bit! :doh:
Perhaps it might be like the older Wheeler Dealers where they had small budgets and bought cars that were within reach of the man in the street.

Yes, it's down the dusty end of the TV listing pages......
I only saw the trailer for the show as I happened to be watching American Pickers.

Hi Jason,
According to Wiki, it's been around since 2016.

No problem Rob. New car shows are always worth a look, they might turn out to be good.

I quite like Cop Car Workshop. Find it quite interesting how they kit out the various vehicles for their duties. The amount of smashed up nearly new BMW's is quite thought provoking too.

Did anybody watch it? I watched the start but fell asleep before the end. For those that also missed this episode, it's repeated tomorrow at 9 AM.

That's what usually happens to me :doh: I wish they would put these sort of programmes on earlier around 7/8.00.

I thought it was good and quite informative,without the usual bull :turd:.
The buyer part could have been a bit better, but with so many adverts on these channels :roll: they are probably pushed for time and edited it :?:

Mk2 Golf GTI next week.

:agree:
Staying awake until 10PM is usually a big ask for me.
I might have to dust off the Betamax to record the next episode.....
