I've been watching this series but can't help thinking they are missing a trick.
In each episode they buy a wreck and restore it, mostly iconic models such as a series 1 Landy. The work is done to a very high standard and it could be a really interesting prog. The problem for me is, too much time is spent on the back story of the vehicle being restored instead of letting us see the work being done and how they do it.
Always a bit disappointing that these programmes always go for "The Usual Suspects". A bit like Practical Classics was in the 80's! Watched a few of the equivalent "Wheeler Dealer" (is it?) programme that runs on one of the satellite channels - and they've followed pretty much the same pattern. As has Channel 5's "Classic Car Rescue".
Still, can't grumble too much I suppose - Classic Motoring was once a "No No!" where TV companies were concerned.
