MG MGA - Celebrity Antiques Road Trip
|For those of you UK-based enthusiasts, Friday's edition of Celebrity Antiques Road Trip on BBC2, featured 2 'celebrities' I had never heard of (apologies to fans of Janey Lee Grace and Tim Smith) driving 2 classic cars which I certainly had heard of, a 1960 red MGA and a 1962 Austin Healey. Worth watching on BBC iPlayer for the cars alone! (ref Series 8 Episode 7)|
|Nice MGA, shame about the steering wheel!|
|I certainly would never consider lending my car to that programme. The car handling of one or two of the experts beggars belief. Charles Hanson comes readily to mind.|
|The two so called celebrities are Steve Wright’s side kicks on his afternoon BBC Radio 2. I recorded programme and watched it last night.|
Only comments are about seat belts. Do people really have MGAs without any seat belts these days? The Healey did have belts when 2 experts arrived wearing them. BUT when Janey was a passenger in it later in the programme she wasn’t wearing a belt, unless it was somehow hidden under clothing. Very naughty and bad example on BBC.
|I can only see a few episodes of Series 12 on the bbc iPlayer?|
No sight of Series 8.
|Ah. Found it now. Another episode where the antique experts make a loss for both teams - seems to be the norm.|
