i have been asked by a friend if i was interested in a little tv thing/job, i have told them i am too stupid to be any use but said i would pass the invite on to here, so here goes.

TV Expert Needed.
A television company is looking for an expert car restorer (see the message below) if you are or know an interested person please contact Gary Coley, at ****** and he will forward their contact details to Steve Evans.
Hi there
My name is Steve Evans and I work at a television production company called betty. We specialise in factual entertainment formats (Betty - Television Production Company). We have been approached by Channel 4 to develop a new idea all about car restoration. We are looking to produce a series for prime time Channel 4 featuring iconic cars as they get restored from rust buckets to a show cars.
For the moment, our searching for restoration. We want to meet people who have a genuine passion for rejuvenating cars that have been left on the scrap heap. But also have a passion for all things mechanical, which is why I'm contacting the institution of mechanical engineers. I'm hoping you will be able to point me in the direction of some potential experts who would be willing to share their knowledge with us on screen. Our expert figure can be anyone, as long as they live and breathe motoring and know everything there is to know about reconditioning a car to its former glory.
I'm contacting you in the hope that you will be able to help me with my search. If you know anyone who you think might be a suitable restoration expert then please don't hesitate to get in touch. We are casting the net as wide as possible for this search- so there are no age limits or specific types of people that are more suitable than others. Just a genuine passion for engineering and the willingness to share their knowledge.

If you are interested and wish to contact them through Gary Coley then can you PM me as i don't have his sayso to pass on his details.

Maybe this could be a chance to make some money AND put us lot in the limelight in a good way, maybe Kev has some spare time:lol::lol::lol: or maybe Steve Lang etc

Anyway have think about it

Hi there a quick reply as i was at work earlier and the boss is funny about "chatrooms" (his description Simon not mine).
anyway Finton/lance i am more than happy to get tham some attention but i would really need their permission, the other thing that has come to mind (after the comment about Henry) there is one or two of the "old cars" coming out of the woodwork maybe Ch4 would look into a documentary about restoring one of them after all a 70's/60's rod is just as old as an old cortina or MGB and would i guess require as much engineering experience as say a 20's/30's car that you can't get bits for either.
by the way i know where Finton is etc but "Lance" i think i have heard the name somewhere but (forgive me Lance) i don't know him
