  1. Hi Everyone, You may remember me posting in here last year looking for nominations for an upcoming car restoration programme. Well I am delighted to announce that Car SOS series 1 will begin broadcast at 8pm on Thursday 7th on the National Geographic channel. The basic premise is that we find owners of classics, who due to some adversity in their lives, have been forced to take their beloved classic off the road. With the help of their friends and family we then secret the car away, fully restore it and then return it without their having ever known it was gone. It's all about love for classics and realistic recommissions rather than bling and fake valuations. I hope you will give it a watch and find it more enjoyable than certain C5 productions which I shan't name The advert has started running on Sky and the website should go live on monday http://www.natgeotv.com/uk/car-sos Plenty of old Ford's to whet your whistle, in this series we do a Sierra Cosworth, an Anglia 105e and a Mk 1 Zodiac. Hope you will be kind enough to give it a watch and spread the word if you like it. JBRP
  2. Hello my name is Josh Bloom and I am a Producer at Renegade Pictures (www.renegadepictures.co.uk). We have been commissioned by Nat Geo (The National Geographic HD channel on Sky) to make a programme in which we take people's old cars and secretly restore them to their former glory. Let me explain more.... We are looking for someone who owns a much loved older car that has fallen into disrepair. Friends or family of this person, knowing how much this car means to them and that they will never get round to doing it up themselves, nominate them as potential candidates for this programme. Our plan is to then secretly take this car away, and service, paint and repair it until it's as close to original condition as we can manage. We then present it back to the very appreciative owner. This might be an opportunity for you to give something back to a generous and kind soul or someone who has fallen ill and needs cheering up? Maybe somebody who started a project but no longer has the funds to complete the job? Or perhaps somebody whose car failed its MOT 10 years ago, is locked away in a garage, has particular sentimental value and it would bring huge joy into their lives to enjoy it on the road again. The car will need to be from the late 1950s until the late 1980s and can be anything from an old Mini to a Ford Sierra, and while we do wish to work on interesting cars, time and budgets mean we won't be doing up any Maseratis or Bentleys I'm afraid. If you have somebody in mind and would like to give a gift to a deserving member of your family or community please contact me either by phone or email. BUT PLEASE REMEMBER SOMETHING VERY IMPORTANT Our goal is to keep the recommission secret from the owner so if you have somebody in mind please don't mention the show to them at any stage! If you are successful in your nomination we will then tell you more about how it will all work Please call or email any time.
