This will be interesting.....I wonder how they'll comment on the styling and the performance. IIRC the US federal variants had less bhp than in Europe and Californian spec less than federal?

With a 7 are they going to be fixing the basics or possibly dropping in a V8? Compared to some of the stuff they've done, it wouldn't be difficult to convert a dry state car to V8. Even I was able to do it.

Ant Anstead is in the HATE camp and to this day still says it is a horrible car, even after the show has been done.

Not sure about Mike, so i don;t hold up much hope. :?
If it's not broke don't fix it.

The old blokes prejudice continues then...

Ant had close association with Robsport restoring an SD1 during the Channel4 series a few years ago. We'll see what he says to the camera about our plastic fantastic dashboards. :D Any other inside information?

On the way to meet up with a few of the local TR Drivers group last night, (socially distanced and compliant) I had a couple of shouts of "cool car mate!" from under 30 year olds whilst crawling round the Watford ring road.

If I remember correctly, when Ant Anstead was doing the Love of Cars programme with Phill Glenister, they were doing a Stag and he openly stated how much he hated Stags but when it was finished he said it had grown on him and he quite liked it :D :D just maybe he will change his mind on the 7, oh blimey the pigs are flying again ha ha

There was a list in Classic Car Weekly listing each episode and what car was featured, so I hold my hands up to starting the rumour. :P
