Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

1 Mercedes-Benz 230 SL Town­shend and Shaw take on a fa­mous Ger­man car be­long­ing to a petrol­head who bought it as a restora­tion project. Un­for­tu­nately when he suf­fered a heart at­tack the task of get­ting the Mercedes back into shape was too much for him and the iconic car was left aban­doned. 2 Fiat Dino Fuzz and Tim at­tempt to get a 1971 Fiat Dino back on the road. The restora­tion was put on hold when its owner was di­ag­nosed with a rare type of cancer. Now it’s up to them to bring the rusty Dino back to its best. 3 Jaguar Mk2 A race against the clock to se­cretly re­store an owner’s beloved Jag. Ne­glected for two decades, it’s a tough chal­lenge. Can they fix it up with­out him know­ing? 4 As­ton Martin DB6 Tim and Fuzz meet an en­thu­si­ast whose health prob­lems have left him un­able to re­store his beloved As­ton Martin. Can they sur­prise him by se­cretly get­ting it back on the road? 5 Re­nault 5 GT Turbo Fuzz and Tim take on this leg­endary 1980s French hot hatch. The car’s owner was part way through a full restora­tion when he was struck down with se­ri­ous or­gan fail­ure, mean­ing his beloved GT ended up as an un­fin­ished project. 6 Fiat 500 Tim and Fuzz tackle an Ital­ian icon: a 1967 Fiat 500, their small­est car maybe, but one of their big­gest chal­lenges. A se­ries of fam­ily tragedies meant that the car’s owner could not bring him­self to re­store the car and that’s where the Car SOS boys come in. 7 Sun­beam Alpine This car’s owner is a for­mer me­chanic who bought it specif­i­cally to re­store dur­ing his re­tire­ment years. But af­ter suf­fer­ing a se­vere brain in­jury he is now se­verely dis­abled and un­able to con­tinue work­ing on the car. Tim and Fuzz use all their mo­tor­ing knowhow – and not a lit­tle shame­less parts-blag­ging guile – to get the car back on the road for one of Car SOS’s most de­serv­ing own­ers. 8 Cater­ham Seven The car be­longs to a de­voted hus­band and fa­ther who of­ten took his Cater­ham on track days to ful­fil his need for speed. But when his wife was di­ag­nosed with cancer his pri­or­i­ties changed com­pletely. Car­ing for his wife and three chil­dren took up all of his time and his beloved two-seater track car was left alone to de­te­ri­o­rate in a garage. 9 Austin Util­ity Truck Fuzz ad­mits that this truck is his favourite. But can he get away with tak­ing some­thing so large away from its owner with­out him notic­ing? 10 Mazda RX7 Even by Fuzz’s own ad­mis­sion in last week’s How Stuff Works, the ro­tary en­gine is a com­plex beast. Has this one bested him? *sub­ject to change
