Looks like a Zagato.  Alas not on our cheapskate package...

Google shows a tease of "Lancia Fulvia as seen on Wheeler Dealers" from 2008 but it links to YouTube and its blocked for the UK.  Looked on the episode guide and only one Lancia there, an 8v Integrale they bought for 2300, sold for 3800, and made a 713 "wheeler dealer profit" (no labour or rent or fuel running about or phone bills....)

I think the Wheeler Dealer idea is to show the sorts of things you might aspire to doing yourself depending on your level of expertise. If you look on it as a self financing hobby it makes more sense.

Used a little tip I picked up from Wheeler Dealers last weekend. Put a bit of fuel hose on the end of my new spark plugs - made it much easier to locate the plug in the deep well. I'm not up to stripping a Urraco clutch yet though....

I do enjoy wheeler dealers, I enjoy all of those shows, but of course it is a format...

Oh no it isn't !!!

Oh yes it is !!!!!!!!!!

He's BEHIND YOU !!!!!!!!!!!

We enjoyed one called "the tree house man" and just as a project was started he'd get a call asking for help fixing one he'd built before.  The way his friends would roll their eyes and say "oh really, again, just at THIS point" was funny as of course those little insert films had been made before or not made yet.

"Tree House Masters"

More series than I realised.  Might do a search later and see if there are some we missed on at 3am or something.

Well i can safely say that they made a profit on that. Even covered workshop and labour costs. And Mike's fuel bill for running around. Few more like that and they'll be on to something!
