ISSUE 239: We have learnt that next year will see another new television series focusing on our hobby being released. ‘The Classic Car Show’, which will be presented by Quentin Wilson and Jodie Kidd (yes, she’s the one who’s been on ‘Masterchef’ recently), will run for 13 episodes, with the first airing in January. We wrote earlier in the year about the various programmes aimed at classic car fans and how some (‘For the Love of Cars’ with Philip Glenister and Ant Anstead, plus my personal favourite ‘Car SOS’ with Fuzz Townshend and Tim Shaw) are better than others (‘Classic Car Rescue’ and, in my opinion at least, some of the more recent episodes of ‘Wheeler Dealers’). First impressions are that, sadly, this new series may fall into the category of the latter: High-end cars at high-end venues seems to be the order of the day, and sections on the oily bits of the cars which will be featured have been ruled out. However we’ll reserve final judgement until we’ve seen it.

CLASSICS BACK ON TV
‘The Classic Car Show’ (TCCC) is the latest old car programme to soon take to our screens. Taking the meteoric rise of classic car values into account, ‘TCCC’ is an unapologetically high-end production, borrowing many elements of its format from ‘Top Gear’.
