    TV Car Shows

    With so many channels it seems I find a new car show every week. Some I've flicked by as the title sounds cra but actually turn out to be okay and vice-versa. Started watching Bitchin' Rides recently and although it was one I'd gone by it is actually okay. Not one mention I don't think of a 'dead line' format so far so that's nice. They make the car, owner likes it and that's it. Any others lurking out there??
    '32 or '34 3 or 5 window wanted.

    Because a deadline adds some assumed stress leading to "comical" interactions between the presenters. This is in addition to the usual "if this part doesn't fit then the whole project won't be finished on time" announcer over-dub that is typical of these shows. It's total ******** and just allows the producers to pad out a 35 minute programme to an hour. The other thing I hate is the numpty summary at the end of a segment before the ad break "this is what you just watched" and the inevitable recap "in the last part this happened" as the adverts end. If you can't remember what you just watched after 5 minutes of adverts you should stick to licking windows...........

    The only decent, real engineering and playing about with cars thing I watch is Project Binky on YouTube, and that's a video blog for two guys in a shed building a car.

    Whatever you do, don't watch Carjackers. It's like Pimp my Ride, only much, much ****ter.

    Don't watch TV, but Roadkill and Dirt Every Day are great on Youtube.

    if you look in the background you can see the other cars that feature on the show in the process of being restored, so there can't be a three week deadline

    I always liked the Overhaulin series. They still did the week long build but they actually show the team of builders it took to make the goal and it was usually nearly 40 skilled people. and they explained in several episodes that they have to buy new engines and such because rebuilding the existing in most cases would have taken to long to complete.
