Wow, the Isetta ending was surprising.
And I did not know the Isetta was sold in even less stable trike form in the UK.
But I guess Brits are used to being unstable.

They did another hairdresser car.
When Mike said they wanted to fix EVERYHTING (on his pig in a poke purchase) for under 800 quid.. I lol'd.
Most surprised by the "house call" body and paint man's work for the price.
Do we have those in the US?
Don't forget to watch a cycle is born, chopper is born, plane is born and how to detail your car. All epic as well even if not specifically automotive.
And yeah- it was nice to see them working with realistic budgets again.
Buying classics that need work and then counting all labor as ZERO makes it easy to buy and resell for a profit.
But buying a modern car for way under retail that needs work and then stripping parts off a wrecked one to bring it back to life is more what the average person would be doing.
I can't imagine what a base SLK 2.0 drive like since it is a rather heavy car compared to say a Miata.
I'm guessing the dealer gets a discount b/c of repeat/bulk business.
LOVE THIS SHOW!!!! My favorite! Better than UK TG, I'm not a fan of US TG yet...
Also don't like chasing classic cars, the main guy (wayne?) seems all about the money and seems like a miserable SOB, never cracks a smile.
The WD guys seem like car enthusiasts and the kind of guys you could have a beer with. I like the cars they pick too, although I do cringe when I see the amount of work that Ed has to do to fix up the cars... Poor guy. When you think about the tiny amount of profit they make on each car considering the man hours involved I wonder how they survived before they got a tv show!
A body shop near where I used to live would have a line of brand-new BMW/Porsche/Audi/VW cars from a local dealer.
A shop near us here services the local VW dealer and he always has cars in the lot.
Came across this new show, called "Strippers. Cars for cash" which runs on National Geographics.
It is basically an East Enders meets Wheeler Dealers with more than enough of VERY strong East Enders accent.
Lots of fun but good luck, trying to understand this character, called Frankie.
