  • Car S.O.S: Episode 6
    Tim & Fuzz head to Cambridge to rescue a big cuddly and cherished Range Rover. The Range Rover represented a huge change of gear for Land rover in 1970 when it was introduced.

The later 1991 Range Rover Vogue that Tim & Fuzz collect symbolized freedom and happy days for Margaret, her husband and their family. Used to tow their caravan all over the UK, this 4 wheel drive was always dependable that durable. Now a sad reminder of better times, the car is in desperate need of some TLC; Enter CarSOS.

    In the late 1960s BMW were looking to break into the US market and the sports saloon they created to make the right waves was the 2002, a 2 litre, 100bhp tourer, it instantly became a successful race car with Hans Stuck winning the Nurburgring 24-hour race in 1970.

    General Motors was a late entrant to the hot hatch market waiting until 1983 - but when it did turn up to the party, it did so with an amazingly effective weapon. The original Cavalier SRi-powered 115bhp car was just about perfect in every way - and easily a match for the all-conquering Golf GTI. Even in basic entry level form, the Astra was a great handling car, but when fitted with wide, low-profile tyres, lowered suspension and gifted the excellent 1.8-litre 'Family Two' engine, it was transformed into a flying machine. The GTE arrived in 1983, and within a few months received a close-ratio gearbox - to answer the only criticism of the launch...
