    I spoke with Gina from BBC about lunchtime today, unfortunately I was in Grimsby on business and logistically couldn't get things sorted for tomorrow, I wanted to be there as opposed to having the car trailered to location and back. A shame but it was last minute, I was told that they got let down at last minute... I tried...

    why does the entertainment industry ALWAYS want everything at the last moment, and are usually sooo vague on the details that no-one is willing to commit!

    'NSX wanted next thursday in the south'.... that's anywhere from lands end to dover!!! so someone in devon says ok i can help, only to find they want the car in tonbridge, or vice versa! and they wonder why these things are a pain and not as well supported as they could be!
    aka Jonathan!!

    '92 charlotte green auto.... as a daily
    '37 Ford Y street rod......... something for the weekend!

    Maybe because HUK had to deal with a journalist who brought a crashed car back...

    I did get to read the T&C's on insurance and to be fair wasn't happy with some of the wording and liability, with no time to question and change, if that would happen, didn't help. Shame, but as mentioned better planning would give more chance of success, most know programme schedule a fair way ahead.

    I guess there will be no review on the best 90's poster car to watch then! :-(

    I offered my 1991 completely stock car, I was away but I had someone lined up to drive it where ever it was needed, but other than the OP and Mark (the previous owner), no one got back to me on it since I believe they thought they already had a car - I would have been happy to let a jorno drive it properly (within reason) as plenty of my friends including racing drivers have driven it including on race tracks.

    Shame. a real missed opportunity!
