Over­haulin’

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Tues­day, 8.30pm, Turbo Max In which cars are, well, over­hauled. But wait, there’s more. In this episode, Car­los, a US Marine Corps vet who has come back from two tours of Iraq and is in fi­nan­cial straits, not least be­cause he has a new baby to feed, thinks he is sell­ing his beloved 1950s Chevro­let Im­pala to pay for nap­pies. Af­ter con­spir­ing with Car­los’s broth­ers and un­cle, and swear­ing them to si­lence, the Over­haulin’ team gets to work on the jalopy. What Car­los doesn’t know is that the team is go­ing to fix up the car, then give it back. Aw. It’s Back­yard Blitz, with cars. The re­veal, when it comes, is ev­ery bit as emo­tional in a blokey, dis­be­liev­ing way. Host: ‘‘ You’re on Over­haulin’, man.’’ Car­los: ‘‘ No. Are you f . . ing se­ri­ous?’’
