    Having heard what I've heard about it, I'll be avoiding it. Those two are bodgers extraordinaire. I wouldn't let them near my car. Paul

    I wonder if Mario really pranged the back end of that Jaguar the other week by accident , after it " Apparently " had just been resprayed .

    or was it just for so called entertainment purposes ?

    Yes ........ i agree the arguments and so called accidents ( e.g. = last weeks axle falling off on the ramp ) are a bit staged and the terrible acting does not help .

    One way to gauge how genuine the accident / argument is i have found ............... Is to not look at the people concerned with the incident but at the surrounding mechanics / bodyshop people , as i have found them trying to hide their laughs / smirks , while trying to look shocked or serious .

    My lass laughs when on Top Gear , Jeremy's car door falls off for no reason and i tell her that doors " Just don't fall off " , they would have to be loosened for entertainment purposes .

    Even on The Only Way is Essex , there is a sort of disclaimer notice put up with the titles saying ,

    " Some Scenes Are Set Up For Entertainment Purposes "

    So do the Clairvoyant programmes and Dynamo Magigian have a sign that admits that the items on the show are for " Entertainment " purposes .

    At least they are honest , maybe Top Gear & Classic Car Restoration should warn viewer that it's not all true too == L.O.L.

    Does anyone watch that new car show called ...

    " Strippers : Cars For Cash " on the Nat Geo channel .

    http://natgeotv.com/uk/strippers-cars-for-cash


    It makes a change for a car programme to break down cars instead of fixing them .

    Two teams ( each team has one mechanic and one car dealer ) buy similar cars for £ 3,000 or less and have to sell the parts for a profit and obviously the one who makes the most wins .

    One of the car dealers is called Frankie Oatway and he acts like he thinks he is a cheeky chappy geezer type with his rhyme and slang and turn of phrases ,

    but ends up looking like more like a stupid wally .

    The programme has a voice over by Boycie from Only Fools & Horses .

    ================================================== =====

    By the way this programme is about as good or should that be bad as Classic Car restoration ......... ......

    Including the fake set up scenes .......L.O.L.

    ================================================== ========

    P.S. == What ever happened to Leepu ?

    Watched that MGB one too. 2 weeks to restore a total rust bucket? FFS some people would spend 2 weeks restoring the wheels. No way they spent 2 weeks restoring that, I dont care what anyone says.
