Default Anybody watch wheeler dealers

Just wondering if anybody has ever watched wheeler dealers on velocity that show cracks me up.There terminology for car parts is funny they work on some strange vehicles on there. Good show and watching ED that is almost 7ft tall fit into a lotus is pretty funny.

Very entertaining. Did you see when he traded up going around the world?

Velocity has some good shows, Chasing Classic Cars is great as well.

I like how the British care a lot about accessories and options.

The Impreza one is my favorite.

Love it, watched it for years now.. it's comedic and very informative. Ed is really "smart" with the "spanner"

It's a nice alternative for the tattoo'd up drama queens on Discovery.

I swear I have watched every episode!

You should read a little bit about Edd China.

He is from my Mom's hometown in Bracknell, England.

Quite the tinkerer.....https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...1T7jt3wj7p_4lQ

I like it. I have been watching it for years.

I love the way they quote how much they spent, not taking into account of Ed's labor. If you figure in labor, they lose money on every car, but they love to save them from the crusher.

I love how they figure they made a profit by not figuring in any of Ed's labor at all.

Great show, Ed is one hell of mechanic he doesn't back off on some of the POS cars they buy. I agree the Texas asshole who thinks he is the greatest has become just plain stupid with his worthless acting.

I rarely do my own repairs, but do enjoy listening to Edd describe exactly how he goes about some of the more complex ones. A recent rerun had Edd explaining his repair of the innards of a manual gear-box on a 15 year old Audi.

Interesting terminology, they lift the bonnet to get access to the engine. And the metal used on some of the parts is pronounced Al-you-minny-um. The transmission is pronounced Gear-Box.
