Mimi kindly asked the questions we prepared, it was a fun…
National Geographic’s top-rated car restoration show with a heart, Car S.O.S, returns to screens for its eleventh season on Thursday 9th March with 10 brand new episodes bringing fresh cars, fresh banter, and fresh celebs to an unmissable series that will make you laugh and shed a tear in equal measures.
Each new episode features a different heart-warming and inspiring story from owners who deserve the chance to have their treasured classic motor fully restored back to its prime condition, with parts-blagging car enthusiast Tim Shaw and master mechanic Fuzz Townshend who are helped along by special guest cameos along the way.
The much-anticipated eleventh series begins with Karl whose life was torn apart by bereavement and family illness. The emotional roller-coaster of an episode follows the Car S.O.S team as they battle to rebuild the family’s 22-year-old Ford Mondeo and turn it into Karl’s dream car. The result of the Car S.O.S team and their persistence and hard work will leave even the most hardened of petrolheads amazed.
Later in the series, we meet Darren, a landscape gardener from Stafford, whose Rover SD1’s head-gasket blows-up. At the same time, he suffered with family illness, loss of his job and his own battle with cancer. Thankfully after three years of fighting, Darren was given the all-clear. However, after so much time in hospital he never managed to fix his beloved car. Any salvation for his once cherished car had come to an end… or has it? Wife Jackie and son Ryan knew there was only one chance to reunite Darren with the automotive love of his life and that’s Car S.O.S.
A third story to highlight is that of Ben, who came to England on the Windrush. Ben always dreamt of being a photographer. However, temporarily became a taxi driver – which lasted over 40 years. Another goal of Ben’s was to get his beloved Porsche 911 Targa on the road but after being diagnosed with the early stages of Alzheimer’s, his dreams sadly crumbled. The Car S.O.S team must ensure that Ben can drive his Porsche after 33 years of dreaming, before his driving license is taken away. This really is an SOS with the clock ticking.
The first six episodes of Season 11 have been announced today, with the remaining four remaining under wraps until the cars are returned to their owners in a special and surprising way in true S.O.S style that is then captured on camera for the show.
