video of the day. A310 on Wheeler Dealers.

I had read several months ago what the UK show Wheeler Dealers was going to do an episode about the Alpine A310—–and i’ve been looking very forward to it for a while!  A couple of reasons why:  (A) there really isn’t too much in terms of videos, information, or documentation of the A310, at least not in english anyways, (B) the A310 is on my list of cars I want to own in the next 20 years, so i’m super interested, and (C) because I usually enjoy Wheeler Dealers anyways, and putting an Alpine on there is just icing on the cake!

Here’s the full, nearly 44 minute episode!

Wheeler Dealers: Lancia Fulvia

I was hoping for a full episode about the Fulvia, but this seems to be a short summary of the Fulvia and some advice on buying one.  I’m not a huge fan of the S2 headlights on this one, i’d much prefer the Series 1—-but i have heard/read that the Series 2 had some mechanical improvements so they may be onto something.  I am staggered by how cheap these sell for on the secondhand market in the UK.  Unfortunately here in the US, since the Fulvia was never officially sold, even raggedy 1.3s have sold for around $10k.  Good ones tend to reach higher into the $12-18k bracket.  I won’t get into the gory details of an amazing one that really slipped away from my own pawing hands several months ago….

wheeler dealers: BMW E30 325i Touring

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!

(PARTS 1 through 5).
