EPISODE 17 - NEWS, VIEWS, PICTURES & LINKS FROM THE SHOW
Jason Dawe and Penny Mallory

Jason Dawe and Penny Mallory present another episode of the Used Car Roadshow ably assisted by ZoŽ Hardman and Rob Hallam.

In tonight's episode Jason and Penny meet buyer Jenny Gow, a radio DJ from Ascot, who has to drive something reliable for those early morning broadcasts. Her current car is a Ford KA but with £7,000 to spend she's hoping that the team can come up with something that's a little more stylish. Jason and Penny pull all the stops out to find her dream car but will she have a change of heart when they are revealed?

ZoŽ Hardman and Rob Hallam are back down at the auction to see if fortune fears the brave or whether a dose of Auction Fever will grip this week's buyer.

Ever so Gentley Bentley

And back out on the road Jason relives a Teenage dream in the shape of an immaculate Ford Capri. But its no ordinary Capri as Jason gives us the low down on why this Brooklands model has become one of the most desirable second hand Fords that money can buy.

We've also got a dose of Free Motoring to share with a very practical Volvo estate that will give a Porsche a performance run for its money. The T5R was a bit of a beast a decade ago and still raises the pulse of those in the know but best of all, the Used Car Roadshow Team think that if you can buy one for the right price you can run it depreciation free for a whole year.

And star of this week's Body and Soul is the Chrysler PT Cruiser. The owner fell in love with its retro American looks but decided that it still needed a bit of personalising. The outcome proves he achieved just that!
