After Top Gear, one of my favourite automotive shows is Wheeler Dealers. Broadcasted out of the UK (as expected), it starts Mike Brewer and his trusty mechanic Ed. They buy cars cheap, do some work on em, fix em up, and try to sell em for a proflit. They pick up some pretty great stuff. Makes me jealous of the UK used market!
In this episode, they get the rare-in-the-USA BMW E30 Touring for 900 quid!
