Car S.O.S presenters Fuzz Townshend and Tim Shaw have opened a new exhibition at the British Motor Museum featuring cars from the popular National Geographic motoring TV show.
Featuring seven cars that have been rebuilt by the team behind the show, the display at the museum in Gaydon, Warwickshire, includes three from the most recent series.
Now in its sixth series, the car makover show has brought more than 60 cars back from rusty wrecks to their former glory, including a pre-war Austin ‘Tilly’ truck, a vibrant yellow Lancia Delta Integrale with a touching back story and a rare AC Aceca sports car.
What to expect from the exhibition
Graphics and clips from the relevant episodes run alongside each of the cars in the new exhibition detailing the many technical dilemmas Tim and Fuzz had to get the cars back to their best. They will also give an insight into some of the personal stories and challenges faced by each of the cars' owners, many of whom attending the exhibition to see their cars unveiled again for the display.
Stephen Taylor Woodrow, series producer, said “The Car S.O.S team are over the moon with the exhibition. We get so many requests from viewers asking where they can see our cars so this really is a perfect opportunity.
“The fact that the exhibition is at the British Motor Museum makes perfect sense – having been at the venue for two of our reveals – we have built up a good relationship with the team there and knew the cars would look amazing.”
About the museum
The exhibition is now open until the end of February 2019 and is included within the Museum entrance fee. There are more than 300 cars on display at the museum, from the classic and vintage to more modern vehicles and well-known cars and trucks from films over the years.
