Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

thurs­day 22 June @1PM, Na­tional Ge­o­graphic

This provoca­tively-named TV se­ries may con­jure up nos­tal­gic me­mories of a mis­spent youth, but the premise of the show is ac­tu­ally far more provoca­tive than that – it’s about scrap. In this Na­tional Ge­o­graphic se­ries (the same chan­nel as Fuzz’s Car SOS) two teams choose a car to break, then see who can make the most from sell­ing the parts. A wide se­lec­tion of cars can be seen dur­ing the se­ries, but in this episode, (se­ries two, episode two) Bri­tish clas­sic lovers may wince be­cause the cars be­ing bro­ken are an Austin 1300 and a Ford Cortina. It might seem like sac­ri­lege, but both are rot­ters, and at least the parts are be­ing re­cy­cled. Nar­ra­tion is by ac­tor John Chal­lis, best known as Boy­cie from Only Fools and Horses. And if you want to find out more about the se­ries, please be care­ful what you type into a search en­gine… Mur­ray scul­lion
