    anyone been watching this? 2 episodes in and I’m actually quite enjoying it. Little more gritty and true to life than Wheeler Dealers I think....

    Blaze, 9pm Friday evenings, or +1 of course, I think it repeats on a Sunday but I have it recording to watch at my leisure.....
    1st Episode was a BMW Z3, last Friday was a MG Maestro would you believe!

    There seem to be a host of these types of programme these days, Car Chasers, Lazy Boy Garage, Find it Fix it drive it etc.

    I dont have loads of time for TV, what's worth watching?

    Wow , I actually like that ! I've also just seen an advert on the "box" for a BMW i8 , so I guess they are going mainstream :D

    Another program I have really enjoyed is 'Bangers and Cash'. It is about a family business headed by a guy named Derek Matthewson who runs a Classic Car Auction in Thornton Le Dale. :)

    I have enjoyed it more because I knew Derek before he moved up there about 30 + years ago. Nice easy watching and he gets to handle some interesting Classics. Un-fortunately it's about halfway through the series but the whole series so far is on catch-up. Next showing is at 8pm Thursday on Yesterday. Worth a viewing :)
