Porsche 911
Bernie said whilst looking inside the distributor cap on the Porsche 911 that the distributor rotor spins at engine revs per minute ? It’s a four stroke engine so the distributor will spin at half engine speed because a four stroke engine needs to rotate two compleat revolutions for all of the cylinders to fire so the distributor rotor will rotate at half the engine speed.

Outrageous
Trying to provide history lesson to my granddaughters. Tuned into this program...bleeps, yelling, arguments,they even threw a car off a trailer. Sorry, I will not expose my precious grandkids or myself to these immature, sociopaths.

911 and XKE
Aside from the plainly staged arguments and "accidents" in the shop, Take a close look at both the 911 and the XKE in the "before" condition. The primer spots and multicolor paint splotches are so hopelessly FAKED. An insult to anyone with half a brain or even basic knowledge of body work.

restoration project
The guys really do a great job on restorating these cars and give a great bit of history on the cars as well. Really enjoy the fun British humour as well, My only hope is that they restore a Triumph TR4A or TR5

Shame could be good
I do hope the producers read the comments made here. A great idea for a show but so poorly executed stupidity is not that interesting and they seem to be putting more and more into the show. SHAME. Lets see more of the work on the car and less of the bull poo.

Fake
Everithing is fake. those last minute stupid crashes to add some drama are so dumb that is almos impossible to happens. The argue is always the same and a long list of etc. The valuable thing of this type of show i reality, but this is 98% fake so I see no point in watching it.

Garbage
Who wants to watch a stupid show like this where they argue and fight all of the time. This could be an interesting program witout all of the stupid drama.

Crap
Always same argument the two monkeys arguing about the choices and its more than obvious they are very bad actors. Besides that the whole thing is very poor in every aspect of a series show. Well nothing to see

Fictional
I restore old cars as a hobby and no matter how long you do it you can always learn a trick or technique from somebody else. But you won't learn a lot from this show, it is painfully scripted too make it seem more dramatic.

Garbage
This show is unwatchable, each minute will make you dumber than you were before.

What a terrible show
Not at all what I had hoped for. A programme about arrogant egos. Car restoration is secondary. Now cancelling my series link record.

Excellent
I like these guys all the arguing etc a good laugh and entertaining keep it going makes a change to have some interesting tv

Utter nonsense
This show is a joke.

Entertaining Show
I like this show, it's a million times better than "Bangla Bangers" and "Chop Shop" and i find this show very entertaining. Yerp the arguments are staged and purely for the sake of entertainment, but the restorations are great (what they show of them). I guess the people who have negative comments for the show want a show more like "An MG is Born" or something less entertaining that wouldn't do as well on TV.

Looking forward to new series
I really enjoyed the last series. It took me back to when I was able to restore beautiful old vehicles myself. Bernie makes me laugh he's such a card... he reminds of some of the guys from my past.

Polish
For all those that believe in the old adage, "You can't polish a turd", watch this & let Bernie & the cowboys prove you wrong.

Anyone that has said it is crap! Well you must be insane!! this show is the above^^^^

TOTAL CRAP!
What a load of crap! These goons don't know a thing and are damaging the restoration industry that strives to rebuild peoples dreams in a safe, sensible and reasonably cost effective way. What these clowns are doing is downright dangerous. Whoever gave the go ahead to even film this crap? Should be pulled off air at once!

Brilliant
Probably the funniest thing on TV at the moment. Watching these two incompetent bodgers making faux Silk Purses out of Sow's Ears has me in stitches. In stitches, casts, and bandages is how I expect most people who drive one of their tarted up death traps end up.

Appalling
Please remove this from your schedules or, at the very least, replace the presenters and revise the format

Awful Rubbish
Gives completely the wrong impression of how much it costs to restore a car, comedy script. The 'Mustang' screen thrown on the floor was a modern tinted one and since when did a rotor run at engine speed - a wasted opportunity.

Completely fake.
But what else would you expect from Channel 5 now that Dirty Desmond owns it. He's paring costs to the bone to prop up his failing newspapers.

mgb
Obviously 2 cars used in this one.Plating a roof with flat metal, please.But then when the time comes to work on the engine it a different car.Covered in the script by "fitting a new rocker box".This was on the "original car" when bought.TOTAL CRAP.Watched no more of them after this drivel.

Here we go again
Oh maweeeoooo what have u bought this for? What a load of wubbisshhh

Rubbish
The production team should be lined up and shot,

Rubbish.
What a shame!!! This could have been a good show! Except from 1 major flaw. THE PRESENTERS. What a set of idiots.. We must look like right jerks abroad.

Who are they trying to kid? Absolute rubbish.

Absolutely the worst classic car programme I've ever seen.

unwatchable
horrible programme with a potty mouth presenter.

Another Joke Renovation show
Doesn't matter if it's a car,house or a garden.That amount of work can't be done in that short amount of time, and why do they always have a deadline?
Wellingfan 11:25am Wed 17 Oct
 
   
Remember Bangla Bangers and Chop Shop
Even the title theme is similar. Having painted many cars over the years I was not impressed by the finish on the Mustang. Plus who is that valuer fella, he could be anyone. He asked if the MGB had a bare metal respray and based his final figure on that plus what about all the background team which obviously did all the work with just those goons in the limelight, I am sure it is all a set up and does anyone actually win any of these cars and what are they really like i wonder, will we ever know

Just waisted another hour
These two twerps don't understand car restoration. Please take the show off air now, it's embarrassing.

Rubbish fake
It's the same every week terribly scripted! Just watched him "accidentally" drop the windscreen! What rubbish

TV car programmes
Car programmes on TV are so dire they hardly show the cars it's reality rubbish. It seems to be more about the presenters and don't get me started on American Hotrod/Chopper!

Pure garbage
Puts us real mechanics in a bad light what a load of tripe.

Just Awful
Demonstrates just how low TV has sunk in the last few years. Contrived, scripted, banal rubbish.
flaspol 7:59pm Wed 10 Oct
 
   
WHAT A JOKE
WAY BEYOND REALITY, HOW MUCH DO THEY PAY THE STAFF 50p PER HOUR ? WHAT ABOUT OVERHEADS ? PRESENTERS WOULD NOT LAST 5 MINUTES IN REAL GARAGE !
TROJAN 7:21pm Wed 10 Oct
 
   
Scrap it and the cars they 'rescue'
If you can't do any better just buy wheeler dealers.I Wouldn't want to win any car Bernie fixed

Watch Nat Geo instead
Watched the Strippers thing on Nat Geo. Bit of a shame to see cars getting broken for spares, but it was bloody funny
rpm 12:47pm Wed 10 Oct
 
   
inaccurate
cars are overpriced and the repairs time are under estimated
Gav 8:13pm Tue 9 Oct
 
   
POO
Very poor rubbish with two lousy "presenters"
Ray 7:24pm Tue 9 Oct
 
   
POO
Could have been a brilliant program but not with these two presenters - what a couple of useless bastards.
Ray 6:47pm Tue 9 Oct
 
   
!!!!!!!!!
Utterly disgraceful rubbish !
dodge 3:15pm Tue 9 Oct
 
   
Terrible
As the title suggests this is painful to watch! Cars are bodged, it's very staged and the "restored" car at the end is massively overvalued.
Blah blah 11:32pm Mon 8 Oct
