Wheeler Dealers

Anyone watch this? I'm an addict, and sometimes watch the same episode 2 or 3 times. (I don't know why, just kinda relaxes me, for some reason.)

Anyway, I've suggested an RX-7, as I'm sure many others already have, but I was wondering: do you think a rotary engined car is something Edd could manage? I'm asking because, with no pistons, cylinder heads, rocker arms, etc. and only a handful of moving parts I wonder if it's a job that could only be done by rotary specialists.

It's on Wednesday night at 9 on Velocity (the former "Discovery HD"). Episodes are repeated frequently during the week, so check the Velocity schedule page.

Here's the official website:

The idea is that they look for a celebrated old car from the past (usually a sports car, sometimes a truck, muscle car - anything "interesting" to car nuts) that needs work, buy it cheap, fix it up and then sell it at a profit.

I've watched that show for quite a while. I don't think Edd will have a problem. They don't crack open the engine on the show. They mainly do suspension repairs, body and cosmetic work. That's the same whether it's a rotary or not. A repair of a RX7 would give them a chance to fill some air time in attempting to explain the operation of the engine.

The Velocity Channel was originally Discovery HD Theater.
