    I saw this last night.
    Oh my God this has to be the worst car programme I've ever seen. So false I was left cringing.
    It's really quite insulting that they think the public can't see through such a sham of a production.

    £9500 for an imported LHD 280z wreck , spent £15,500 on it and sold for 30k..... Good to know the 240z became the 200sx and then the GTR , learn something new every day!

    I think this programme is the biggest load of bull**** around.

    This car was on eBay last year around September and they hadn't even managed to complete the car as the side windows were still missing and various other bits and pieces. The old obeyers must of thought it was a load of crap as well as it only just managed to reach just over £10,000. Then in November the car turned up at the NEC Birmingham show on the Quest stand which they were touting the car for sale.

    I honestly recon these so called buyers who turn up and pay them with seems to be large amounts of money are all put on for the show. I have seen some poor t.v car shows, but this one takes this biscuit.

    Watching it now. God it’s pretty painful.

    Lots of TV hyperbole, body kit beyond hideous, 9.5k for the base car - they were ripped off! Better cars have gone on eBay for half that.

    Interesting seeing that workshop full of import projects though - looks like SJ Classics (the guy with loads on eBay).

    Sean, it takes about a week after a show to appear on you tube. I tried to capture off the tv but my battery died so i only got a front view.

    I hate these programs, I would love to find something that wasn't so fake but still documented a thorough rebuild from purchase to sale. MightyCarMods is about as close as it gets for me.

    I only watched a bit of it, then had enough and changed channel. These guys are selling themselves as car 'designers', so why did they fit that brick of a front spoiler? Surely they didn't think it looked good? And the crappy mesh grill? I am guessing they did not have the time in the schedule to do anything nicer, so just stuck it on. Shame really...

    Just forced myself to watch this till the end...... not impressed and as mentioned above, horrendous body kit, and that spoiler! :eek:

    The only good looking thing about it is Mr Dezart's shiny manifold :D

    Suspension was hilarious on the front end - lets remove all that weight from the front and not lower it o_O

    Wonder if they cut the back arches out?

    They really copied one of the guys from the US with that body kit and the gulf colours. Its literally identical but no where near as good a build.

    Wasted 45 minutes of my life, but I've seen worse, and the harnesses over the top of the seats :eek:
