Well, what do we watch now?

With Edd China announcing his departure from Wheeler Dealers, some people seem to be in mourning at the moment. Doubtless, repeats of shows with Edd in will continue on channels in the dark depths of the Sky and Freeview, but where can those of us who enjoy watching proper spannering take place from the warmth of our sofa go to get our fix? YouTube, of course, and here are my top picks...


Mighty Car Mods

Sure, it can get a bit Fast & Furious at times (okay, quite a bit of the time), but Marty & Moog have a huge back-catalogue covering everything from tinting windows to engine-swapping a Legacy or two. Some seasons are better that others, but they're always watchable and may well inspire you to get off the sofa and take on a small project of your own. If Roadkill annoys you with their "just bodge it together" attitute, then MCM is the opposite with the guys making sure they show you how to do it right...


Project Binky

Nik Blackhurst and Richard Brunning of Shropshire-based Bad Obsession Motorsport are an accomplished rallyist and co-driver who also happen to run a race and rally car preparation business. They decided that a fun project would be to shoehorn the running gear from a Celica GT-4 into a 1980 Mini and Project Binky was born. these chaps are of the "we can fabricate it faster than we can go buy it" school of engineering and the slatherings of sarcasm and tea drinking make this as British a watch as, well, sarcasm and tea. I'm looking forward to the end when they make a replica Binky out of all the cardboard templates...


HubNut

Friend of Motoring Podcast (he's been on Rear View, so that's good enough for us!) and magazine editor Ian Seabrook's YouTube channel is an assortment of road tests, fleet updates, collection capers and working on cars. Think of it as the Anti-Carfection...


So there we go, 3 options to fill that enormously tall Edd-China-shaped hole in your viewing habits (unless you're happy that Ant Anstead is plugging that particular hole, but only time will tell on that). These chaps are all on YouTube, so don't forget to watch the pre-roll adverts, like and subscribe from time to time - it helps them all create new content for us to enjoy.
