Car SOS
27 October 2015 | by spezzano1See all my reviews

A real Honest Car Restoration Show Helping people in Need of a Hand, A well oiled Team of Tim Shaw a very Sharp witted Parts Shark who bends the truth to get a Discount, and love to offer fuzz help but magically disappears And Fuzz Townshend a hands on Mechanical god who gets little help from Tim and a lot of Help from Phil the hidden master, but Fuzz and Tim have a real chemistry and you feel but the show is really fun and educational,They also take us on a tour of the amazing Small Craftsmen all around UK still restoring parts for the likes of Austin Martin, Jaguar,Morgen Mini McLaren

So with all the Super Fake and Tacky Car Shows Car SOS is a breath of fresh air !

Car SOS is really refreshing and entertaining car show Great Job Guys !!
