Bangers And Cash | Series 8 Preview (Yesterday)
Back for a brand-new eighth series, Bangers & Cash follows the Mathewson family’s classic car auction business.
For three generations, the Mathewsons have been turning old bangers into cash from their vintage 1930s garage on the edge of the North York Moors National Park in picturesque Thornton le Dale in North Yorkshire.
Collecting vehicles is generally a solitary task for the Mathewson clan but Derek and Paul are off to Leeds on a rare father and son road trip to pick up a VW Cabriolet and a Lotus Elite.
Some stunning cars are put through Mathewsons auctions but very few match the spectacular sight of the 1961 Facel Vega. The buyer will be driving an example of a marque chosen by A-list celebrities like Frank Sinatra, Ringo Starr and Stirling Moss.
Derek is impressed by the vehicle’s French style and American engineering, “You can keep your Cosworths when you get cars like this… it oozes quality”. Plus, a 1925 Talbot Coupe is just as impressive - and is expected to buck the trend that has seen pre-World War Two cars struggling to make good money.
Bangers And Cash returns Thursday 17th August at 8pm on Yesterday.
