Citroën HY Van

Posted on September 22nd, 2015 by

Mike goes to the south of France in search of a retro-cool Citroën HY Van.  The moth-eaten vehicle he comes back with doesn’t impress Edd, but Mike has a plan and he’s confident that with a replacement engine and an overhauled body, it’ll be easy to find a buyer who wants to use it commercially. […]

MGA

Everyone has heard of the high-selling MGB but the car that came before it – the MGA – is the one Mike wants to track down for the U.S. workshop. Why? Because it looks great, goes around corners well, and sells for high prices. When Mike tracks down a California car for restoration he thinks […]

VW Corrado VR6

Posted on September 22nd, 2015 by

Mike is ecstatic when he snaps up a cult VW Corrado coupe with only one previous owner for a bargain price. But cheap cars can bring expensive surprises, and his smile soon vanishes when Edd uncovers a worrying leak which could signal a broken engine. Oh, and an ABS issue which could cost as much […]

Ford F1 Pickup Truck

Posted on March 5th, 2015 by rapidz

A pickup truck is a stateside icon and Mike is keen to get into the booming classic truck market. He manages to find a 1950’s F1, which is an unfinished project. The bodywork has already been stripped of paint and this patina gives Mike an idea – give this down-at-heel Ford a vintage rusted look. […]

Honda S2000

Posted on September 29th, 2015 by

Mike and Edd take on their first ever Honda, but finding a cheap S2000 is tough. Mike takes a big gamble on a car that’s already had over £4000 spent on it, and still has major engine problems. With very little money to spend, it’s going to take all Edd’s workshop expertise to find the […]

BMW 2002TII

Posted on March 5th, 2015 by rapidz

The BMW 2002tii was better handling and more driver-focused than its contemporaries back in the early 1970s, attributes that have made it a desirable classic car today. Trouble is good ones are starting to go for big money. To stay in budget Mike has to take a real punt on a car that hasn’t been […]

Noble M12 GTO 2.5

Posted on October 6th, 2015 by

Mike heads to Italy to grab a genuine junior supercar.  The British-built, right hand drive, Noble M12 GTO may be a fish out of water in the Italian mountains, but Mike hopes that it’ll make much more sense back in the UK. He has a plan for Edd to upgrade the car and bag them […]

Pontiac GTO

Posted on March 5th, 2015 by rapidz

The team knows a rust-free GTO would be a great car to kick off the new U.S. workshop. But these cars are rare, and Mike has to travel all the way to Chicago – almost 2,000 miles – to find one. When he does, he discovers this great time-warp muscle car isn’t all it seems. […]
