Wheeler Dealers is a British television series produced by Attaboy TV for the Discovery Channel, fronted by car enthusiast Mike Brewer and master mechanic Edd China. (In the United States the series is seen on Discovery’s Velocity Channel HD.) The premise of the show is that Brewer and China are on a mission to save repairable enthusiast vehicles, by repairing or otherwise improving an example of a particular make and model to a budget, then selling it to a new owner. Watch Full Episodes of Wheeler Dealers.
Car enthusiast Mike Brewer and master mechanic Edd China work together to give new life to run-down, classic automobiles in order to resell at a profit. Working with a limited budget, Mike’s job is to find and purchase a vehicle before presenting it to Edd, who makes the necessary repairs — and there usually are plenty of them — giving tips along the way about electrical and structural issues, mechanics, cosmetic touches and finishing work. Once complete, the restored car is taken for a test drive, and then Mike negotiates the purchase price with a new owner. The series, a British import, began airing on Discovery Channel in the U.K. in 2003.
