Spring 2015 sees the airing of the Discovery Channel show's 12th series eagerly awaited by a growing fan base around the world. This heavily illustrated manual highlights key restoration procedures for each of ten of the show's most popular project vehicles, and allows Mike and Edd to provide additional specialist advice and insider hints and tips for those contemplating a restoration project. Essential and entertaining reading for Wheeler Dealers fans, classic car enthusiasts and would-be restorers.
First airing in 2003, with a twelfth series being broadcast in 2015, the show follows the adventures of Mike Brewer and Edd China as they buy, restore and sell classic cars, and has almost certainly been responsible for inspiring enthusiasts across the globe to emulate their adventures.
It all started in 2003 with the restoration of a Porsche 924, and no one - least of all Mike and Edd - knew just how big the show would become. Its budget was tiny, with just £1,000 available to buy and restore the car, and while that might seem laughable now, until Wheeler Dealers came along no one had attempted to film the restoration of a car for a TV show.
Over the past 12 years, and more than 100 episodes, the show has featured some amazing cars, from those that are familiar to just about every car enthusiast to some that are more than a little unusual and unique.
From sports cars to luxury cruisers, from off-roaders to cars that float, and from the most vintage to the truly modern classic, there has been something for everyone.
The Wheeler Dealers Car Restoration Manual is essential reading for all Wheeler Dealers fans and classic car enthusiasts.
