Car SOS | Season 2 episode 3 | "Cortina Conundrum"
We Brits love our cars but, just like any relationship, sometimes things can get a little rusty. Meet master mechanic Fuzz Townshend and radio and TV presenter Tim Shaw, a petrol-head pair who undertake dramatic automobile interventions across the UK, hoping to return some much-loved motors to their former glory. With a tight deadline to turn each job around without the owners knowing, find out how these neglected classics fell in need of a little loving care – and what Fuzz and Tim can do to get them back on the road.

Mk 3 Ford Cortina GXL full restoration
From swamp to show winner, this video gives you an insight into the whole story of PNO 922K, 1971 Mk3 2.0 Manual Cortina GXL.

I hope you enjoy the show, sit back, dim the lights, turn up the sound, get some popcorn or pizza and go for it.
