A TV show which has just finished, featured a Z as the main character's car...

I think they were at Cars & Coffee at Irvine, a gathering that only lasts until 9.00am ish. The idea is to get the use of the carpark before it fills up with "regular" customers. So, by the time Mike returned it would have been much quieter.
Go to Youtube for videos of these events. I now understand the Irvine meetings have stopped because of complaints and traffic problems. Google might give you some info on that.

Edd China has now left this show due to the fact that the American razzmatazz that now surrounds the show is now too far removed from the original concept. Good on him for sticking to his principles. The show was far better when he was working on some old beat up mini or golf than some yankee station wagon. Edd and Fuzz show anybody?

Fair play to him. I can't say I've watched many of the US-based shows - maybe a couple (the Z one of course). As he now says, it's too far removed from the normal hobbyist on a budget which, let's face it, most of us are.

I'm pretty sure Roadkill's Rotsun isn't doing us any favours:

Show won't be the same without Ed in my opinion, he and the cars made the show for me.

I really liked Ed getting his hands dirty as lot of people don't realise what it takes to repair older cars and a lot of car shows don't show enough of the preparation it takes.

Now that would be a good watch plenty of greasy spannering with far less faffing about on stupid joke elements
