Wayne Is Famous!

Mike Brewer stopped by Pelican on last night's Wheeler Dealer episode and briefly chatted with Wayne. Way to go!

Also, have been impressed with the new Wheeler Dealer with Ant doing the wrenching. All those horror stories when Edd left about less tech content have proven to be false.

I thought the same thing watching the show last night.
Hey it's an old Porsche in CA, where else do you go?
I also agree the tech/how to aspects are still there
Ant also can fit into the cars Mike buys

I really like that show, was worried about the content too initially. The new guy is very knowledgeable, seems to be a solid mechanic.

So why did Edd leave the show anyone know?

I agree, Version 2.0 is great.

After the outcry when Edd left the show, it is clear that the producers back-tracked on their original plans to remove much of the shop portion of the show.

I loved the old show with Edd and was apprehensive about the new version but I like it. Edd does have his own new show as well:

Thanks for the link, I assumed it might have been a rif over money. Glad he held his principles, kind of sad though to leave after 13 years.

I like the crack about the meat heads yelling! I watched that show just to see finished cars, but i like the wrenching aspects more of wheeler dealers.
