Dave thinks all we are going to do is clean it up and polish it a bit - so he gave us is his aftermarket spoiler and wrote in to us originally having never seen the previous video in this series................ I think Dave's expectations may be a bit off

, my dad has a mk2 cortina and has left it in his back garden rotting away for around 6-9 years but he keeps talking about refurbishing it but what puts him off is the price it will cost him, he believes it will cost him around £6000 and that’s a lot of money for my dad, he really loves the car and it’s worthless to him (many people have offered him money for the car and he always has said no) work causing him to be busy meant the car had to sit there as it can’t be used and parked out front as there very easy to steal as he has said to me so he uses the back gardens drive area to keep the car, really hope you see this as I believe it will be a really fun episode as a mk2 cortina is something from the past. If you was to do this the joy and happiness he would gain back would make me so appreciative. Thanks boys

Why is everyone comparing to Pimp My Ride, its obviously more Car SOS-ish which is a great initiative. No negative energy from me. This is awesome

As much as I'm jealous as I applied, this guy deserved it a lot more than I do as I've had a shit year like many people, but didn't almost die at any point. Plus his car is more interesting than my boring old shitbox. Good job as always CT.

Hi mate what amazing video, so nice to see someone get such a lovely gift, car looks amazing, I've had horrible year, and as single dad off 2 every days a struggle, I thought was such a great story I've emailed Alex and the team, asking if anyway could help me and my 2 littleones with our car to get back on road, would be amazing to get some kind help and have some luck for us other the bad luck, take car and hope enjoying car :)

Enough with this kind of content, the good vibe thing only goes so far for ratings. Time you balance it out with some mildly racist-sexist comments and exotic road trips with unobtainable supercars. #actuallyreallyawsomeanddomoreofthisplease 😃✊🏻

Had covid last September, not so bad I had to go to hospital, but the fatigue STILL hits me, but the worst still is the sense of smell, anything that's a bad smell just smells of gas to me, and sweet food just doesn't taste the same. Can you fix my car? 😄

Good and careful job done by Gareth, Alex and Jack. Wish Dave a good health and motivation! The wheels guy though simply sprayed the pefect light silver colour OEM wheels with that gray paint- those should be sanded and powdercoated to be durable.

Man caught media driven disease panic and couldn't afford to pay for maintenance on his old Mx5 because he got another loan and bought a newer Mx5. My heart bleeds
TheTerryTurbo123 преди 2 месеца
@DSS199 Well, I'm big enough and ugly enough to own my mistakes. So I apologise for my assumptions and am glad for you and your Dad as enthusiasts who both share an interest. I hope your Dad's ill health isn't permanent and I apologise that my cynicism about BGpost influencers led to me putting 2 and 2 together and come up with 5
DSS199 преди 2 месеца
@TheTerryTurbo123 no coincidence, it was there by design. You realise hours of footage was edified down into a smaller episode. There isn’t time to explain every little detail. The car is my fathers, he was there to assist due to my ill health at the time of filming. Simples.
TheTerryTurbo123 преди 2 месеца
@DSS199 Well from my initial assumptions, that only leaves an uncanny coincidence then. Vid felt about as real as a £23 note but fair play on getting your car done up out of it all

Looks fantastic. I'm jealous. This car is pretty much exactly what I plan to get. NC2 sport in black,soft top. I plan to get wheels done in gun metal grey sort of colour and want to fit Meister's! Let me know if you're selling! But I know that's not going to happen 😁
