Over at Streetfire someone has uploaded episodes of Wheeler Dealers, a great UK show “keeping modern and iconic classics on the road.” The premise is this: each week the hosts find a beat up old car, fix it up, and sell it for a small profit. Along they way they talk a bit about its significance, meet with a dedicated owner that has a mint example, and show you how to do some basic resto jobs.
Well that doesn’t sound so different from any slew of shows available on American cable TV, you might say. But wait! This being England, they aren’t obsessively focused on muscle cars and, as a result, feature cars like this AW11 Toyota MR2, another 1984 contender. All are gobs of fun to watch.
And here we were thinking Top Gear was the only car show from across the pond.
