Phil Glenister and internationally renowned car designer Ant Anstead are on a mission to find and restore six unsung but heroic British cars. These cars are on a regular basis classics. They are the cars our dads drove, cars that we loved as kids, cars that make us smile. They will not be super cars but they’re national treasures and they desperately need saving. Having rescued them from barns and lockups Ant will undertake the ultimate bare metal restorations on each car: the Ford Escort Mexico, Land Rover Series 1, Mini Cooper, MGTC, DeLorean and Triumph Stag. Even as Ant is on the spanners , Phil will meet the people who find themselves married to their motors. For these people their car is a member of the family. He’s going to also discover the touching, funny and ceaselessly hard to imagine stories that make each of these cars more than just metal and rubber. The series culminates in the finished cars going to a public auction to see if the entire blood, sweat and tears have been worth it.
