National Geographic’s top-rated car restoration show with a heart, Car S.O.S, returns to screens for its tenth season on Tuesday 26 April at 7 PM with ten unmissable new episodes. One of these episodes includes a special anniversary show featuring the 100th car to be made over on the series. Also, expect a stack of celebrity faces popping up throughout the run.
Each new episode features a different heart-warming and inspiring story from owners who deserve the chance to have their treasured classic motor fully restored to its prime condition. Parts-blagging car enthusiast Tim Shaw and master mechanic Fuzz Townshend return, joined by special guest stars. These include ex-England football legends Bryan Robson and Wes Brown, who are on hand to lend their time, energy, and moral support to a very special Car S.O.S reveal at Old Trafford football stadium. Other celebrity Car S.O.S fans who make cameo appearances in the series are David Beckham, Sir Paul McCartney, TV mechanic and motoring specialist Edd China and Emmerdale actress Natalie J. Robb.
The much-anticipated tenth series begins with an incredible makeover of a Fiat Uno Turbo, which was once the pride and joy of Gerry, who recently discovered that he was suffering from a rare form of blood cancer, leaving him unable to fix up his car. Gerry underwent several months of chemotherapy which initially helped – sadly, his cancer still spread to his spine. The Car S.O.S team battled through a series of setbacks to get the car back to its former glory, and the result of all their persistence and hard work will leave even the most hardened of petrolheads amazed.
Later in the series, in what promises to be one of the most moving episodes in Car S.O.S history, we follow the story of the Howe family. Contributor Steve’s daughter Darcie was at the Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena when a bomb tore through the lives of those there. Darcie survived, but her mother, who had come to collect her, was sadly killed. Before the tragic blast, they wanted to restore their 1963 Citroen HY Camionette into a milkshake and coffee van. Car S.O.S have stepped in to make it happen. This reveal is one of the biggest Car S.O.S has done, as it took place at Old Trafford Stadium, with the help of ex-Manchester United legends Wes Brown and Bryan Robson.
Also featured in the series is the story of Ash, an electrician from Huddersfield. Ash owned a 1992 VW Corrado, which was his pride and joy. However, after being diagnosed with testicular cancer and then being close to death from sepsis, Ash was left too weak to be able to keep the car in shape. It ended up rotting away behind an industrial estate. His wife Kristina knew how much the car meant to Ash and wrote to Tim and Fuzz to see if they could help get the car back on the road and bring some much-needed joy into Ash’s life.
Details of the 100th Car S.O.S renovation are currently under wraps, but audiences can look forward to an incredible makeover of a classic car brought back from the brink to live out a new life as a top of the range eclectic car.
