I would much prefer if they visit celebs car collections (Leno’s garage , jay kay etc) or just regular folks with interesting vehicles?

Great idea, as the only bit of that I like is when you find out they are a proper petrolhead who've had some nice cars.

Really enjoying the new series, actually look forward to it every week now, haven't been like that since late 80s early 90s when Chris Goffey etc did it pre internet days and it was all about the cars and only place you got info on what was new.

Even Mrs Alfie enjoyed it. Admittedly she said it wasn't really a car show, just some friends messing around which is probably where they're pitching it :)

That felt like me (I own a couple of Matras) versus Smull (he loves Allegros.) :D

Anyone else jealous of the adventures these guys get to go on?

:)

And of course, you lost....Allegro wins :D

Must be awesome to do these trips with all the backing that goes with it so yeah, ‘well jel’ as the kids say :D

Had to a agree about the Cullinan too. At best it’s dull and at worst it’s obscene.

They’ll probably sell thousands.
:rolleyes: :D

Was enjoyable to watch and great to see the wee Allegro doing so well, loved it with all the offroad kit (reminded me of a Corgi safari landrover I have).
Absolute sin to destroy that matra especially though, the guy who sold it must be gutted watching that! They could have wrapped them in vinyl or something easily reverseable (maybe they used waterbased paint but looked like they were rollered with gloss) Not a car I like..................…..I'd probably have had the 1500 allegro over it...….but appreciate the rarity of ithe Matra!

Ohhh yes. In a Mortimer type accent. Me and my Mrs always thought it was Bob.
Paddy should have got a Matra,..................... Rancho, remember them? I always fancied one when I was leaving school.
