FANCY buying a restored second-hand car that looks and performs as good as new at less than half the price? Wheeler Dealers on Discovery Turbo every Wednesday at 8.30 p.m. is the ultimate place to find them. From the sixties Volvo P 1800 super series to the fifties Lotus Elan, the funky Citroen, rare Jensen Interceptor, Land Rover Defender, Subaru Impreza and more, vintage buffs will get everything. Buying rundown old cars and meticulously restoring them to their original beauty are auto engineers Mike and Edd (Mike Brewer and Edd China), who work like artists to re-piece motoring classics to their retro glory, sparing neither money nor creativity in their effort. Mike has spent most of his 43 years selling thousands of motor vehicles. No-one knows what to look for better than him when it comes to buying used cars. Edd is the quintessential madcap engineer with a passion for cars who not just restores jalopies but is also a creator of a number of extraordinary and wacky vehicles, several of which are in the Guinness Book of Records. The two also give expert tips on buying, and selling used cars. NF
