Trust me to get the start date wrong :lol:

She informs me that there wont be an MGB on the show which is a pity because I love taking the mick out of those.
When you hear a rorty engine and it crawls past flat out at walking pace it can only be an MGB! as the yanks say "if it don't go polish it" explains why most MGB's are polished :twisted:

Surprisingly entertaining show, there's been some great cars on so far. Amazed to see that a 21 year old recent graduate. living in London had a budget of £25K to buy a BMW 1 series MSport thingumy as her first car. I shudder to think how much the insurance would be.

Rebecca is good, but the classic advocate is a bit of a dimwit, fancy offering a 6 cylinder automatic Mustang to someone who wanted a quick and good handling car! That 'Stang is neither, though TBF, he probably couldn't find a V8 one in budget!

One of my customers had a 6 cyl auto 67 notchback just like that one (well not as tidy) Calling it gutless was being KIND to it! One of my Bro-in-law's buddies has a real nice 68 notchback in dark blue metallic with a 289V8 and 4 on the floor, he would sell that for £12.5K! It's that cheap cos it's a converted 6 cyl car, not original, but all factory parts.

Out of curiosity, does anyone know where they film this series? That test track looks awfully familiar.
