Wheeler Dealers Mike Brewer and Ant Anstead return with a new series

Published 30 January 2020

Wheeler Dealers Mike Brewer and Ant Anstead are returning to our screens in March. The pair plan to save a host of classics from the crusher as they restore the retro rides from their LA-based workshop.

Always on a tight budget, Mike and Ant aim to turn a car's fortunes around and make a tidy profit. It’s never easy, and it rarely goes according to plan – but Wheeler Dealers is always top TV.

Season 16 will see the crew tackle a 1972 Fiat 124 Spider that needs a bare metal re-sprays and a gearbox swaps to bring it back to its former glory. Elsewhere, the boys get their hands on a fifth-generation Ford Bronco.

Also passing through the Wheeler Dealer workshop this series will be a 1973 Toyota Celica, 2002 Mercedes Benz E55 AMG, 2004 BMW M3, Volvo Amazon 122, Toyota Land Cruiser, 1985 Merkur XR4Ti (that’s a Ford Sierra to you and me) and a 1982 Porsche 911 SC.

Keep up to date with all Mike and Ant's shenanigans when Wheeler Dealers returns to Discovery on March 2 at 9pm.

I prefer "Flipping Bangers" recently aired on the Blaze TV channel.
Real old school mechanics buying and restoring cars for a living.

Where's Ed ????

Fair enough Discovery bought the programme and decided to aim at the more lucrative American Market by dumbing-down and dramatising the concept in order to compete with all the other car shows: fair enough. But would it not have been possible to run a British version alongside it, in the same vein as the original first five or 6 series? Just Ed, Mike (or someone else if he's too - ahem-' big' to bother with such small fry these days) a bunch of spanners, and a budget of a few grand? The recipe was simple and phenomenally successful because of it. Ant, with his permanently open mouth, 'look at my biceps' t-shirts and weird boots just isn't the same, despite his enthusiasm.

It was a sad day when Discovery showed 2 fingers to the original audience, and killed an original and fun programme.

BTW, HJ, in this country we say "series", not "season". Please, you aren't going the same way as WD are you?

The original format was the best Restore a car and run a competition to win it. Really good fun and the limited budget need not be a problem.
Restoring all the gas guzzling USA stuff has no interest to me.

It’s now a big turnoff. Stuff the US market. British series was very good.

These were all aired on Motor Trend between April and May last year (2019), almost a whole year before UK gets it !!!!

Ant is great! And so is Wheeler Dealer’s Mike Brewer. The show teaches and entertains people like me that absolutely love cars but are not masters of restoration. Please stay with us!
