A quick web search shows a list of cars, no Mustang, but they do tackle a DeLorean. The DeLorean will be interesting given the brushed stainless bodywork.

Hey Gav, we need a sticky or some sort of tv schedule for motoring related items..


I can make a sticky post called "Must watch tv" if you think that would work?

Including the word 'motorsport' may stop the inclusion of all sorts of TV programs?

There is a DMC getting around my area, it makes me happy to see it on the road. Very cool car, I think they are going to get mad money soon! Once my generation (80s kids) start getting some cash together and get nostalgic for Back to the future I'm sure values will soar. So about 20-25 years away haha.

Hey Gav,
            The Aussie author Matthew Reilly lives in Sydney and drives a DeLorean. May have been him. For anyone after fast action books try Matthew Reilly. Scarecrow series are great.  I have read all of his books and am eagerly waiting for the next.

Could be, I've never seen who is driving it. I've just seen it parked outside a restaurant in Drummoyne and near Concord a couple of times. They are quite a wide car and it's still a left hooker. I'm just glad to see it being driven about, but if I get a chance I'll see if I can talk to the owner.

Restoration Garage - TV Show

https://www.youtube....7ikIs5NOl5XX_NQ

Just watching the first episode now. No idea if it's any good but looks interesting so far.

Edit: Looks to be in the same vein as American Hotrod if you've seen that show. Mostly shop drama around big dollar builds.

Not a bad watch at all.
Personally I would have preferred a little less of the "waffle" and a little more detail on the rebuild.

Will be watching again next week  :)

The next episode "Land Rover" is on channel 2 tonight.

Haha

Yep my Mrs is the same, but I like it when Offspring comes on, its my cue to head to the shed.
It's one of the only times I get no complaints about heading to the shed "again"

Now I'm thinking about getting a nut punch from the Mrs. Mmmmm is that wierd?

I had to quit watching that program, the hack jobs they do upset me too much. No finesse in anything they did, just a geezer!

Same guy had a previous TV program called: Chop Shop, where his so called designer Leepu churned out some of the worst automotive abortions I've ever seen!
