New Salvage Hunters classic car TV series
Salvage Hunters' Drew Pritchard and Turbo Pickers' Paul Cowland launch new classic cars TV series
A new classic car series is on its way from the makers of Salvage Hunters, the huge antiques-finding programme from Quest TV that's now into its 11th series.
Salvage Hunters: Classic Cars, will be fronted by Salvage Hunters star Drew Pritchard and former Turbo Pickers front man and restorer Paul Cowland.
The format will follow that of Salvage Hunters, with the pair seeking out cars that they can repair, restore and move on – as long as Drew manages to part with them. One of the first episode previews shows them arguing over the best colour for a classic Mini that Drew has taken a shine to. Paul's response, 'I haven't got the time or the crayons to tell you why that's a bad idea', sets the scene...
Other previews include a visit to a collection of some of the most unloved cars in history, which Drew refers to as 'car hell/nirvana/disaster area'. The pair discuss a Renault 19 Chamade, which Paul thinks is 'cool', and Drew refers to as a 'dreadful thing'.
Or there's the disagreement over which front grille a Mk1 Golf should have, four-lamp (Drew: 'Essex Boy') or two-lamp (Paul" 'your nan'). We're on Drew's side on this one – let us know which you'd choose via Facebook.
Here's more on Drew Pritchard and Paul Cowland's favourite cars and best moments from the show.
The first episode of Salvage Hunters: Classic Cars will be aired at 9pm on 17 January on Quest.
