Classic Car Rescue
Classic Car Rescue is a British reality television series produced by Blink Films and aired on Channel 5 for six weeks in 2012, as well as on Discovery Networks affiliates in international markets. Each one-hour episode documents the work of Cockney mechanic Bernie Fineman and his Canadian business partner Mario Pacione, as they purchase “shameful rust bucket” classic cars from scrapheaps, wastelands and backyards and restore them to their former glories. Having bought the “bargain wrecks,” the pair must then source the parts needed to return the cars to the shiny, desirable motors they once were. At the end of each episode, the cars are appraised by automotive valuer Dylan Miles before being given away in a viewer competition.
