Classic Car Rescue
Season 1 Episode 1 of 6
New series. Bernie Fineman and Mario Pacione scour scrapheaps, wastelands and backyards to find classic cars in need of restoration. As well as tracking down the parts that can bring the vintage wrecks back to life, they learn about the stories behind the machines and reveal why they occupy an important place in automotive history. The duo begin by working on a Jaguar E-Type, a sports car that set new standards in design and performance during the 1960s. The programme also features a chance for viewers to win the restored car


Sounds like it could be an interesting watch.

I was looking forward to it until you said that! Chop Shop was easily the worst car based show I've ever sat through!

Why do people let their cars get into such a bad shape?

Not bad so far on the programme though

+ a good few more!

...and what's this? A left hooker for £12,000 - would have been better off with the other car for £14,000.
