Surely the Australian version of TopGear will show you how well such a show would work.

Fail.

and what business in australia does the sort of work overhaulin does?

Notice how they always do jobs on cars where they can just dial up all the spare body bits and everything, we dont have that sort of infrastructure for our older cars.

Good point about the infrastructure. It all relates to size of market and demand. I am often amazed when watching Overhaulin' where they enter warehouses stuffed full of NOS or replicas parts for an astonishing range of vehicles.

I suppose that over the years, with the multitude of US models that were made, there would have been huge stocks of parts unused when production of each model ceased.

Rare Spares might like to see it happen, but they might be a little light on with stock after a couple of days......

there was rumors about 2 years ago that Pimp my Ride was being Developed for the Australian Market, my mate is an airbrush artist that was approached to participate, But it never ended up getting off the ground.
