Scooby Doo taught me otherwise. If it wasn't for those pesky kids, etc.

When you say "white"... Was that the colour, or was it appearing from a cloud of steam?

BTW I saw an MG the other day. I followed it for a while and was convinced it was a Midget, until I got closer, then I realised it was an MGB. Dang those things are small!

Local dealer has one for $7k. Very tempted.

Has anyone else seen Wheeler Dealers on Velocity channel ? Flicking around the channels we came across it, good show where each week they revamp a car and sell it for a profit.
They were showing old episodes the other day and did an Aston Martin DB7 bought for £12K put a bit into it and sold it for £18K.

Velocity has a load of decent car shows on. They also show 5th gear (new series shown here a few days before the UK amazingly).

Yep - I saw that episode. They only made 500 GBP off of that deal. Nice looking motor, though.

I would quite happily buy a car they had up for sale.

I've been watching a lot of car shows on Netflix. Seems most are more about drama than cars. I think 'Desert Car Kings' is OK, and have been watching 'Carfellas'.

That's quality. I hope it was their car and not stolen. That'd teach them!
