New series starts tonight at 9pm on discovery, be interesting to hear the vewiers opinions of the new mechanic.
Having already seen the first few episodes I’d vote for Ant.

At least they start off with a car we know, not some yank tank that we’re unlikely to see on our roads.
I remember being a passenger in a reasonably new one many years ago, the owner minded it so much that you nearly had to take off your shoes before getting in it.

Found another show on Dave HD tonight, James May’s cars of the people. Nice show without any drama , tonight’s episode was about four wheel drives, everything from a WW2 Willis Jeep to a Lamborghini aventador and back down to a 4x4 fiat panda

On the subject of motoring programmes, any of you guys with netflix?? Check out a series called " Roadkill" , Not for you if you don't like gas guzzlers, but if you enjoy road trips......

And in a similar vein " Wrek Trek"...This is particularly addictive as it charts a group who attempt to drive junk yard purchases from Berlin to South Africa..

Haven't seen either of those shows, John - but they sound right up my exhaust pipe kinda programmes!

And Pops, yes, ice seen the James May Car of the People show. I thought it was well worth a watch.

Yeah Roadkill is pretty good, plus all their off shoot shows on the motortrend channel on youtube. Another on the same channel worth a watch "Dirt every day"

Give skid factory a look if you like mechanics and Aussie V8s ;-) You've been involved in some of the MCM builds in the past.

Another car show on Netflix....."Fastest Car"....in each episode, 3 "sleepers" are pitted against a supercar in a 4-lane drag race, each episode winner then moves to a grand finale on a lake bed for a 6 car drag race...intersting mix of characters and vehicles...
