I caught this earlier this evening, a great way to unwind after a day in the garage.

Though I can't help feeling that had the Beta been a manual box as opposed to an wouldn't have had quite so many problems! (It would have still had problems) Grin

Was I on my own just willing the Beta on to the finish-line?  Undecided

I caught the end of programme by accident.. Quite glad as i remember first time round cringing when clarkson smashed the front grill in to loose some weight off the car. It might of faired better if the lighter Hammond had driven it.. .. I think his Opel Kadett was  restored by the team on Practical Classic Mag.
