'Classic Car Rescue' TV Show on CH5
#1
I have copied part of the CH4 filming thread into a new thread for the 'Classic Car Rescue' series on CH5. In the main because it has been getting mixed in with the CH4 one and partly because they are also doing a programme on the DeLorean so is probably worthy of it's own thread!

Starts Monday the 14th April on Ch5 @ 8pm starting with Porsche 928. Just to remind everyone we have had nothing to do with the episode on the DeLorean, it was restored/worked on in Canada.

I'll have to make this disclaimer also. I must have shot around a days worth a footage for just a small portion. As I found out from my magazine feature, they will always try exaggerate things and pick out certain bits even when you ask them not to. Hopefully it turned out as well as I remembered it going.

Other than, I really do hope they put a different front caliper back on the 928 after smashing the *rap out of it with a lump hammer I have nothing else to say regarding last nights Classic Car Rescue on Ch5. Except that some one has sent me this link for the series:
http://www.express.co.uk/entertainment/ ... -supercars
From reading this bit though it does seem there going to make a big thing about the doors :roll: :roll: :roll:
Not only that but the steering, brakes and interior had to be overhauled as well as the corroded front headlights. Then there were those doors.

“If you didn’t hold them they would slam down and probably take your head off,” recalls Bernie.


Oh dear!

I must be mistaken. I believed this to be a car show, not a comedy. My bad..

i'm now glad I declined to be involved…that wanted to use a load of my archive photo's, but ended up buying some cheap video instead……jolly good luck to them.

I only ever watched half a programme from the last series and thought it was DIRE!


Mind you, i'm not too sure about the title of "our" new channel 4 Delorean programme……" for the love of cars"…sounds a bit Naff to me.

I watched that programme with interest, having seen the previous offerings-I can't believe they also put the caliper back on without even giving it a lick of paint!
Very poor imitation Wheeler Dealers I think-parts are almost predictable,especially the shouting and walking out,hardly the good example of classic car restoration........ :lol:
#10556 'Ol Stainless' running surprisingly well,Audi A5 2.0T Quattro smug as usual,Wenault Slaguna stationary for the mo',the R.V.Enterprise clocking the U.K.miles up,new fleet addition-Jessica the Daewoo Matiz,silly but 55mpg....!

Like yourself I watched it (as probably did most) out of the interest in classic cars and cars in general. It's always nice to see our hobby on the telly! Though I note at the beginning of the programme they put a disclamer about 'some' parts being staged (or something like that) I don't recall this being on the last series, to many complaints perhaps? I'm really surprised that the caliper didn't break with the amount of hammering it got, I would have thought it would just be a thin casting unless those are machined?

Is anyone else enough of a car geek to have noticed that the rear tyres on that 928 were on backwards for the session at the rolling road?!

my uncles red 928 was the one used in the driving shots at the start of the show, and
he was also in the line up of owners interviewed at the Porsche Club meet up.

I also noticed a continuity issue, when they were having the 928 driven at the track at the
end, in some shots it had a bonnet badge, in others it didn't Wink

They had also spliced in clips of 944 and 968 models to pad out the 928 montage...
