For the love of cars - Sunday, Chan 4, 8pm

Post by deano » Sat Apr 25, 2015 4:20 pm

A quite enjoyable program about the restoration and resale of classic cars..

This week it features a Rover... No not an 800 but very close.... SD1 Police car



Gotta be worth a watch, if you miss it it`ll be repeated later in the week etc.. :shock:

Rumor has it that he is going to be the next Top Gear presenter. I do like Phil Glenister as an actor and presenter of this program. He was also superb as Gene Hunt in life on mars.

Check out Fuzz Townsend on car S.O.S on more 4 straight after on a Sunday evening.

Think the SOS program are repeats...
But also an enjoyable show.

Fuzz knows his stuff....

I watched his on a repeat last night. i wonder how much that restoration really cost. They seemed to be giving it the full works.

I would rather had seen more of the `rebuild`
and not so much fannying around driving like Lewis Hamilton
