    Exclamation New Series of Wheeler Dealers for 2013

    A new series of Wheeler Dealers is being made, as we speak, for showing next year. The format of the program leads you to believe that after they "restore" the car, Mike Brewer gets on with selling it. Well, this might help you understand how they in fact do it.

    An advert was placed in the Aston Martin Owners Club by Attaboy Productions last month asking for someone to allow their pristine car to be filmed as an example of the car they are going to be featuring. They said the car would be filmed at the end of November down Sussex way on an airfield.
    The car that Mike Brewer buys is in the link at the end of my post. I am still trying to find out how much they paid for the car from an Aston Martin specialist dealer! So, after the restoration, Mr Brewer does not actually 'Wheel and Deal' as the program implies by the format. Use the link to see the car:

    "The car is in Bracknell. We’re looking to arrange viewers ASAP.

    Please note that any potential buyer may be filmed for the television programme."


    So, if you want to be on the telly, now's your chance

    I don't like that bloke who does the buying and selling, he is too much "in your face" and gives out the impression of being jack the lad, crafty cockney sort of thing.

    You are not the first to comment on the wheels. Don't know if they were already on the car or not yet, we'll have to wait for the show I suppose.

    That's how I feel, smudger. To me, he represents the type of guy we all hear about on the forum, who posters advise to keep well away from.

    When he first started on the telly, he had his own show where a customer would go to his garage and have to decide which of 3 cars they preferred. He is a typical 'wide boy' made good as they say. At the NEC Classic car show last month, he was on stage with his wife doing "Play Your Cards Right". His style is to bombard you constantly talking like the double glazing salesman.

    I only watched one of these programmes, where they used an abundance of body filler, and a hodge-podge of odds-and-sods to 'restore' a 1979 model with bits from a 1977 model 'to make it look more original', as opposed to trying to lash up a common, undesireable model to make it look like an older, more desirable one.
    Who sacks his workforce and then goes down the pub to hire them all back? All absolute twaddle for brain-dead couch potatoes.
