Get in, sit down, hang on! Mike takes a trip down memory lane for this episode. His Dad owned a Ford Pop and they used to go to custom car shows together when Mike was still in short trousers.
SPEECHLESS: Edd is speechless. He can't believe how much Mike has paid for it and Mike still has to break the news to Edd about all the work he thinks it needs. And, let's face it, it will always needs more work than Mike thinks...
DANGER MONEY: When Mike takes the car on a test drive the steering and handling is dangerous. As soon as Edd gets a look under the car he can see that the front wheels are pointing in different directions.
CUSTOM CAR: The car is fitted with new custom made wheels by a company which also makes wheels for Formula 1 racing cars. It is one step nearer getting back on the race track.
STEER ME IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION: The interior is cleaned up but the real work is on the mechanics and the paintwork.
STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD: Edd moves the exhausts and lights into the rear wings. Edd also goes to a custom paint shop to see if he can find a colour to make the Pop stand out from the crowd.
REV IT UP: Mike can't wait to get this car back on the race track and get that rev counter spinning!
RESCUE ME: Mike knows that there isn't a huge market for a Ford Pop hotrod so he thinks their finished car needs to make a big statement.
BLOWN THE BUDGET: The V8 Chevvy engine is cleaned up and Edd fits a new Jaguar subframe and a fireglass front end. The Ford Pop is ready to go but can they make a profit after blowing the budget on the restoration?
