Wheeler Dealers returns to Discovery for a brand new series
Car dealer Mike Brewer and multi-talented mechanic Ant Anstead return to our TV screens this summer with a brand-new series of Wheeler Dealers, broadcast exclusively on Discovery Channel.
In the new series, the dynamic duo continues to track down classic and iconic vehicles in need of some TLC, with each episode challenging the pair to restore a car to its former glory before selling it on for a profit.
Mike is charged with finding vehicles that have money-making potential, while master mechanic Ant can usually be found in the Wheeler Dealers workshop, working on everything from bare metal resprays to gearbox conversions.
This season zips from the sunny beaches of southern California to the coldest edges of Maine as the diverse used car market of the United States is combed for the best vehicles to buy, restore, test and eventually pass on to enthusiastic new owners.
Wheeler Dealers returns exclusively to Discovery Channel on 31 August 2020 at 9:00pm
