I would like to thank Tim and Fuzz along with the team behind the scenes, but more over need to thank Ric Wood of Ric Wood Motorsport and of course his team too, for producing what can only be regarded as a modern day miracle in the RW3100. Eternally grateful guys.
Car S.O.S is a petrolheads delight, featuring some incredable cars and even more incredable stories, its a must for all car fans. The seriese produced by National Geogrphic Channel and aired on both NatGeo and Channel 4 and Disney Plus.
In this Rover Metro 6R4 episode of Car SOS, releasing on the 11th March 2021. Tim and Fuzz take on a lucky owners scrapyard find which just happens to be the winning car of the 1987 British National Rally Championship driven by Scottish Rally Driver David Gillanders. The Car SOS team for the third time seek out the help of the team here at Ric Wood Motorsport.
Originally planned for the end of Season 8 pre-covid, the project as a whole was left on hold for a while. However the car was thankfully finished around the end of July 2020, and has been kept as a secret ever since! Therefore it has been dubbed ‘the missing episode’ for many months by Car SOS’s Fans.
In another episode Car SOS’s Tim and Fuzz worked with the team at Ric Wood Motorsport to revive what the owner Helen originally thought to be a Ford Capri RS3100 into something even more special and unique, a RW3100.
Master mechanic Fuzz Townshend and parts-blagging petrol head Tim Shaw set off on a mission to save decaying
classic cars for their unsuspecting but deserving owners. The car is taken to the Car S.O.S. garage and carefully
restored to its former glory, leading to the big, surprise reveal!
Just a warning these reveals have been known to make grown men weep…
Car S.O.S is a truly brilliant show. Few car shows have ever been able to get the balance right between, story, education and entertainment.
However, these guys get it right time, with every episode. We at CNC Heads, love to hear peoples stories,
see the obstacles they are able to overcome, their journeys through all and how cars connect them together.
We are genuinely very privileged to be a part of something so inspiring.
If you haven’t already watched Car S.O.S please check it out through the National Geographic channel or on Channel 4.
