Edd China on leaving Wheeler Dealers
I am very sorry to say, that after 13 years on the show, I am leaving Wheeler Dealers. Wheeler Dealers is a great car show, reportedly the biggest on the planet at the moment. It is broadcast in about 220 territories around the globe and apparently has several hundred million viewers worldwide. This success would not have been possible without the huge collaborative effort put in by the production team over the years but most of all because of the loyalty and appreciation of our fans who have kept watching, in ever increasing numbers around the globe. Because you kept watching it; we kept making it. So thank you all for that. Making Wheeler Dealers is no easy task and every episode requires a massive effort from a dedicated team of people. We started, all those years ago, on a niche channel in the UK with just a small production: Michael Wood and Dan Allum; the founders of Attaboy TV and originators of the show, one production manager, a camera man, a sound man and Mike and myself. One hundred and thirty five cars later we have grown to a production team of over forty five staff, and we are now entertaining much of the TV watching planet. It’s been quite a ride. It was exactly the worldwide popularity of Wheeler Dealers and sheer size of the audience, coupled with the lack of product placement and brand endorsements within the show which meant that Discovery US and Velocity Channel saw an opportunity for further exploitation of the brand and so, after season twelve, the show commission was taken over by Velocity Channel in the US, who decided to replace Attaboy TV with Discovery Studios in California. Unfortunately, on Velocity’s first attempt at producing the show they found Wheeler Dealers ‘too difficult to make’, ‘at least in its current format’. In particular, the detailed and in depth coverage of my fixes in the workshop; what I consider to be the backbone and USP of the programme, are something Velocity feel should be reduced. The workshop jobs are certainly the hardest part of the show to make and reducing their substance and role in the show will save the production considerable time, effort and therefore money. However, this new direction is not something I am comfortable with as I feel the corners I was being asked to cut compromised the quality of my work and would erode my integrity as well as that of the show, so I have come to the conclusion that my only option is to let Velocity get on with it, without me. Wheeler Dealers has been an enormous part of my life since 2002, a real roller coaster of demanding challenges and triumphant moments. It has been a privilege to meet and work with so many great people and, from the workshop to the joy rides, to be allowed to experience so many fabulous cars and amazing locations. Leaving the show at the height of its success has been a really tough decision to make but I believe the time is right for me to spread my wings. Sometimes you’ve just got to break free from the confines of your rut and head for the far horizon. I would like to thank Attaboy TV, Mike, our incredible crew, and everyone who has contributed to making such a great programme for all of these years. A special thank you must go to every one of our fans for watching these past thirteen series, it has been great having you along for the ride, your appreciation means so much. Mike and Velocity will continue to make Wheeler Dealers, apparently with Ant Anstead taking my place in the workshop, so new episodes will be on your screens in due course. Being the new boy is never easy, so please give Ant your support, I wish him the very best of luck. It will certainly be nice to see Mike turn up at the workshop with yet another wreck knowing I don’t have to do any of the work! As for me, I am already working on some great new projects which will expand my world in new directions and, as I will have a bit of time on my hands, I’ll even start to put some things up on my youTube channel, so keep an eye out for that. Right now though, I just feel relieved and exhilarated with freedom and I can’t wait to get cracking on the exciting opportunities that lie ahead. For years Discovery have been encouraging everyone to: ‘make your world bigger’ – and that is exactly what I am now doing.

Jaguar Mk 2 - Very High Specification - JD Classics
If you want an example of the absolute ultimate JD Mk11 Jaguar - the Willow Green example we have here is probably a pretty good starting point. This Jaguar Mk11 3.8 was built by JD Classics without any consideration to cost - the final build total was well in excess of half a million pounds and the brief was quite simple from the client who commissioned the car - "build me the ultimate modern interpretation of the iconic MK11 Jaguar." The full specification list of extras applied to this car is too long to list - but highlights include: Full spec 4.7 engine on Throttle bodies - advanced engine management - every component balanced - and hand assembled in our race engine shop on site. We have a hard won reputation for building the most powerful XK race engines in the world - the same race engine builders built this engine as a showcase of what probably represents the ultimate road/race Jaguar XK engine. To cope with the prodigious performance increase and to keep things cool - additional oil coolers for engine and transmission were installed under the front bumper in custom made shrouds, a custom made alloy radiator was fitted, the bonnet features custom louvers and in the engine bay - we installed extra inner wing engine cooling vents. We fitted Solid billet brake/clutch Reservoirs on the bulkhead and the car featured a hidden large capacity windscreen washer reservoir. This engine was paired to a bespoke 5 speed close ratio JD Gearbox, and this power was tamed by race specification Dual Circuit Brakes, Remote control Shock Absorbers, with Full electrical power steering and the car sits on Custom 16 Inch stainless steel period wire wheels. Other custom features include - a Wiring loom to F1 standard with old fashioned original style covering/Braiding and following racecar practice - the Battery was moved to the boot for better weight distribution. A neat idea was the use of a Photo cell on rear parcel shelf to enable constant charging of the battery! Naturally both front and rear screens were heated. The interior of the car included: JD custom seats with Hidden Rear inertia seat belts. Derrington Steering Wheel, with Period custom Switch gear to the left of the wheel. Custom Pedals, Ipod Dock Custom made in the centre console with Sat Nav above Radio and incorporating Hidden Speakers. Custom made Air conditioning fitted in the bulkhead with the switches in the Ashtray, Foot well lighting - Fully retractable Umbrellas fitted to front door pillars. For use in today's busy traffic conditions - Rear Headrests were fitted with Brake lights, Parking sensors were added, LED Fog lights in the rear brake light cluster were incorporated. Twin outside fuel fillers were fitted and for security - Central Locking including the boot and an Iso fix child rear seat fixing were incorporated - just in case you had to transport small precious cargo... Perhaps the most appropriate extra which is highly relevant to a car of this performance was the fitment of Radar in both the front and rear Number plates.... Whilst it would be naive to suggest this car did not suggest it had something a little "extra" under the bonnet - the discreet exquisite hand built body of this classic Jaguar belied the tremendous real world performance of this very fast and refined GT car - much to the astonishment of other road users who have been passed whilst driving their modern "performance" cars... JD Classics reputation speaks for itself - we build the best bespoke Jaguars in the world - and our wealth of experience, success on track, - together with our endorsement by Jaguar Cars Ltd as their worldwide Jaguar Heritage Racing partner - means that - when you ask us to build your ultimate specification classic Jaguar for use on today's roads - we confidently assert we can build the best and meet or exceed your expectations.
