    Thumbs up Bangla Bangers

    Channel surfing on sky tonight I spotted a prog on the discovery channel (250 from memory) called “The Global Garage – Bangla Bangers”.

    It was absolutely amazing to watch – a Old Brit mechanic went over to India to help the Indian chap make a super car from a banger. If you remember the advert where the guy makes a Peug 206 or 306 from an old motor, it was just like that.

    The donor car had metal sheets welded on it and they attacked it with small hammers to make the shapes. The whole process of getting the car and going to an Indian engine supermarket (they refurb blown units from Japan) was amazing.

    Health and safety was non-existent
    They had to test drive it a 5am because that was the only time the roads were quiet - ish
    And the steel plate they use would last a week before it was a brown pile on a drive in this country

    BUT the final car looked like a supercar

    Defo worth a watch next week Sun 19:00 – 20:00 (At least I think it is weekly)
