  • Car SOS


    Car SOS is a British automotive entertainment television series that airs on National Geographic Channel as well as being repeated on Channel 4 and More4. The series began in 2013, and is presented by Tim Shaw and Fuzz Townshend. The show features Shaw and Townshend working closely with the specialist car restoration team helping to restore owners' classic cars from across the UK and Europe, often beginning in serious state of disrepair. The owner and their car, unbeknownst to them, are nominated by a relative or friend because of an inability to restore the vehicle themselves due to unforeseen medical and/or financial reasons. The owners are then reunited with their finished car, much to their surprise at a staged event usually setup by Shaw. In a special series three episode, however, the owner was aware, and the car, a 1962 Austin-Healey Sebring Sprite, once driven by a racing team that included Steve McQueen and Sir Stirling Moss (the latter of which featured in the episode), was restored due to its meaning to the classic car world instead, and was placed in the British Motor Museum once completed.
