Episode 13: Veteran Car

Summary

To celebrate their 100th car, Mike Brewer and Edd China restore a Darracq Type L. However, it remains to be seen whether they will be ready in time to face the famous London to Brighton run.

Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Dealer Mike Brewer and mechanic Edd China have seen 99 wrecked motors come through their workshop and emerge brand spanking new, but would you trust them on the road with a 100-year-old, £180,000 bespoke car?

To celebrate a century of salvaged motors, the pair have got their hands on a classic 1903 Darracq, and intend to drive it in the smoke-belchingly fun London to Brighton veteran car run. At first it doesn’t look like they’ll get further than the museum car park, but these two have a real affection for the car’s veteran foibles. Unlike their American counterparts, Mike and Edd never worry about lingering over the greasy mechanical details, and petrolheads everywhere will rumble with envy when Edd declares, “It’s like driving a thunderstorm”.
