    Default Anybody watch Wheeler Dealers on Discovery?

    I have always been a fan of this show as im natrurally a DIY motorist in some aspects :eyebrow: so always like to see how other people fiddle with things.

    As ive been of work for the last 2 weeks, I have been watching it everyday and what a superb show it is.

    if you watch it, you will know what its all about, but one thing that really bugs me is that they nearly always turn a profit in the end, but realistically they dont, because they NEVER take into account Ed's labour charge's? Is the man working for free?

    Anyway, just thought i'd start a thread and see what car's other memebers think should be restored and sold for a profit.

    I reckon the following:
    • Ford Escort Mk1 or Mk2;
    • Astra GTE MK2;
    • Cavalier SRi Mk2;
    • Ford Capri;
    • VW Golf Clipper;
    • Maybe even a modern neglected Vectra-C???

    They done a Capri few years back, they made a right mess of it. I would like to see a mk1 escort done though.
