OUT of the UK comes a plucky, scrappy, bulldog of a TV show that seems to cross a bit of Top Gear with American Pickers. It’s been on air since 2003. Alright then, you ask, what’s the premise? Two gents look to earn a few pounds from buying, fixing, then flipping a cheap classic – all with a budget of £5,000 ($7,900). In this episode from Season 6 (2009), host Mike Brewer finds an “unsung hero” – Jaguar XJ-S for £1,000 ($1,500). The fun is in watching him haggle for it.
