More ‘Dream Car Fixers’ for UKTV

UKTV has commissioned a second series of Dream Car Fixers to air across six episodes…

The production will air in hour-long slots on Yesterday and free streaming service UKTV Play. Produced by Wiser Films, the first series is currently airing on the Yesterday channel on Tuesdays at 8pm.

Yesterday channel director, Gerald Casey:

“We really believe in Dream Car Fixers and wanted to show that with this second series commission before the first one has even finished going out on Yesterday. We know the appeal that classic cars can have – their history, nostalgia, and expertise required to keep them on the road – and this show conveys all of that superbly well.”

Following the work of mechanic Sheldon Nichols and bodywork expert Peter Harriott, the pair work to a client’s strict brief and budget to find a suitable car and carry out the inevitable mechanical fixes required. They then deliver the client their dream classic, and hopefully have enough budget left over to make a small profit on the job.

Among the cars featured in the first series was an MGB Roadster whose would-be-owner specified the chrome bumper model, a Fiat 500 with a specific interior and roof colour, and an original as possible Triumph Herald Convertible, as well as a Morris Minor Traveller, a VW Golf Cabriolet, a Volvo 850R, an Alfa Romeo Spider and a VW Beetle Cabriolet.

UKTV commissioning executive Emile Nawagamuwa:

“Sheldon and Peter have expertise and chemistry that you can only develop through seasoned experience and Dream Car Fixers perfectly captures how much they love their work and how much they care about making their clients happy. Wiser Films have brought a fantastic series to our screens, and I’m delighted that we can bring it back for a second series so soon.”

The new series of Dream Car Fixers starts filming imminently and will be broadcast on Yesterday and UKTV Play later in 2024. Meanwhile, the first series continues on Yesterday on Tuesdays at 8pm with all previous episodes available on demand on UKTV Play.
