EPISODE 22 - NEWS, VIEWS, PICTURES & LINKS FROM THE SHOW

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 Colin Lewis, a self-confessed classic car nut. Despite owning a healthy collection of classics already, he wants Jason and Penny to find him his next dream motor. With a budget of £14,000 it should be straight forward but Colin is fussy, very fussy, and when he buys a car he wants it to be perfect... even if it is nearly 20 years old. Will they be able to rise to the challenge?

ZoŽ Hardman and Rob Hallam travel down at the auction with Stephen Hoskins, a doctor with a passion to own a Mercedes Benz. He has plenty of cash for the right car but will one turn up on the right night for him to bid on? ZoŽ and Rob keep their fingers crossed.

The UCR workshop

In regular feature Body and Soul we find out just what you can do to a regular car if you have enough imagination and a splash of cash. This week's Nissan 350Z was more than a handful before it was tweaked and teased but the owner Paul Patterson did not let that stop him making his Nissan even more extreme.

And of course it would not be the Used Car Roadshow if they did not come up with another suggestion for depreciation free car ownership in the 'Free Motoring' feature. This week they travel to Croxley Green to show case a lovely Alfa Romeo Spider that would look as at home on the Cote D'Azur as it is on the North Circular.

Look into my eyes...

Nice wheels!

Lovely interior
