We love Car SOS in the Classic Car Weekly office. It’s proper petrolhead telly – and it keeps the forced drama to a minimum.
There’s a new series starting tonight and the opening episode’s restoration of a Volvo P1800 has an added draw – the legend that is Sir Roger Moore, who drove one in The Saint, makes an appearance to give the work of Fuzz Townshend and Tim Shaw the thumbs up! I saw the finished car when it was revealed at last November’s NEC Classic Motor Show and it looked stunning, so I can’t wait to see what restoration wonders the team worked on it.
There’s also an AC Aceca, a BMW 2002 Turbo and a Datsun 240Z to look out for later in the series, so if you love classics with a good tale behind them it’s well worth tuning in.
Car SOS starts tonight at 8pm on the National Geographic Channel.
