I need to fog my car as well. My water leak is getting bad!

I'm not sure what they used to do it.

That short guy is such an annoying fuck. 1500 pounds for a Boxster S??! Props for scoring it for a grand, but I'd have just given 1500.

True driver's cars have been on the decline ever since they started making cars in which the driver no longer had to advance the ignition timing manually on the fly.  It's been a downhill slide of ever decreasing driver involvement and control ever since.

I like that "cheeky" little bastard ;). I kinda want to get that guy into an English pub and talk Doctor Who, Torchwood and Top Gear over a couple of pints.

Though ridiculous (they don't make money on ANY of these) I really like this show. Ed has got to think the short tubby fella is a colossal douche.

ABSOLUTELY Edd has to think Mike is a colossal douchebag (in reality the show is surely completely staged though). Just watch that most recent TVR episode. Mike bought a TVR with a chassis that was literally rotting away.

Nah, I agree with that.

He comes off as incredibly irritating, to me.

I stopped watching it because of that asshole. Maybe I'll watch the Boxster video but god damn he gets under my skin.

Why are used cars so much cheaper in the UK? A decent Boxster S here would cost at least $15000.

Aren't older cars kind of MOT/taxed/inspected off the road similar to how most cars in Japan are?

I'm guessing because nobody can afford to insure them. Colin, any insights?

I've been watching all the old shows where Edd did a little more bodywork then in the modern ones. It's painful watching someone try and do bodywork when it's obvious that being a mechanic is their first job. His welds and way of fitting things are difficult to watch and his filler spreading technique is painful. Nice guy but I wouldn't want him fixing my car unless it was the engine or something no body work related. And you can see pin holes in some of his work even without the show in HD. And don't get me started of the rattle can paint job he did on one car.

The fat guy on the show is a wanker.

Obviously most of you people are confused, maybe it's the location(UK) but it's the same all over the world.

This guy, mike?, is a USED CAR DEALER. Of course he buys rotted worn out shit and slaps a few bandaids on them. The other guy, the painter/mechanic, is a typical used car hack. Sure he's slapping mud on and slapping paint over shotty bodywork. It may be staged, but these guys grew up in that industry, and obviously embrace it. Same exact thing happens here.

I know people like that. And I don't have too much of a problem with it. But they should never use the word "restore" when they talk about the job they do.

I feel like my dad is sitting on a gold mine.





It's quite possible that the problems with my dad's car would make a NCRS judge vomit with rage and then die of a heart attack. The entire fiberglass front end is fucked, the frame is rusted out, the original engine has been replaced by one from an Impala, the paint is not original, the rear wheel arches were cut, and the dashboard is blue (correct) while the rest of the interior is black (incorrect).

I still think it's worth $20,000.

Probably a lot more than $20k. All those things are relatively easy to fix - even a rusty frame.

I enjoyed the one on the Urraco. I helped fix one of those up & drove it round London back when I was yoof.  Good times. Great way to get women 8)
