Mike & Edd’s finest mo­ments

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

1903 DARRACQ

Mike and Edd marked the show’s 100th restora­tion by tak­ing on a cen­tury-old Darracq, with the aim of en­ter­ing it into the 2013 Lon­don to Brighton Vet­eran Car Run. De­spite hav­ing to deal with parts that had been ob­so­lete for decades, the duo suc­cess­fully made it to Madeira Drive.

1998 MAZDA MX-5

The Lan­caster In­surance Clas­sic Mo­tor Show wouldn’t be the same with­out the duo racing against time to com­plete a restora­tion on the NEC’s live stage. You’d think that by start­ing with a car that ran Mike and Edd had it easy in 2015 – but their race to turn a tatty MX-5 into ‘a prize worth win­ning’ for a show­goer went down to the wire.

1965 LAND ROVER SE­RIES IIA

Even a re­lo­ca­tion to LA for the last se­ries couldn’t stop Mike and Edd from tin­ker­ing with Bri­tish clas­sics. Edd’s work on the chas­sis in­clud­ing re­mov­ing sur­face rust from the chas­sis and sand­ing the paint to give it the look of a sur­vival ve­hi­cle, help­ing the pair to make nearly £3k in profit from the pre­vi­ously tired Landie.
