Wheeler Dealers is a car restoration and flipping show that premiered in 2003 on the Discovery Channel, and features car enthusiast Mike Brewer and mechanic Edd China. In 2017, Ant Anstead replaced Edd China as the mechanic on the show. The show follows the hosts as they scour the UK (and later, the U.S.) for used classic cars to buy, refurbish, and ultimately sell for a profit.

Each episode begins with Mike Brewer finding and purchasing a used car, often in need of repair or restoration. He then hands over the keys to Edd or Ant, who spend the next few weeks in the workshop fixing it up. The hosts are always focused on restoring the cars to the original condition and improving their performance to ensure that they can sell them for a profit.

Throughout the rebuilding process, the show provides insight into the mechanical work that goes into restoring classic cars, with Edd or Ant explaining the intricacies of each repair and the steps they take to make each car run as smoothly as possible. They remove engines, identify problems and replace or repair parts, fabricate new pieces, and tinker with the electronics to get everything working as it should.

Once the cars are fully refurbished, the hosts test them out to ensure they're running smoothly and then put them up for sale. This is where Mike's salesmanship skills come into play. He attends car auctions, tests drives, and advertises the cars with the aim of maximizing profits from the sale. The show provides insight into the world of car auctions and serves as a guide for anyone interested in buying or selling classic cars.

One of the highlights of Wheeler Dealers is the witty banter between the hosts, particularly Brewer's quick wit and enthusiasm for each car he acquires. Meanwhile, Edd's sense of humor and practical knowledge and Ant's energy and eagerness to explore the American culture of car restoration serve as a perfect match for Mike’s salesmanship. The team's chemistry is nothing short of perfect, and they shine when working together to bring the cars to their full potential.

The show also incorporates segments showcasing the history and cultural impact of each car they restore. From the Ford Mustang and Beetle to the Porsche 911 and Mercedes-Benz SL, the show provides cultural context to each of the classic cars featured. These segments are interesting and informative, not only for car enthusiasts but also for anyone interested in the history of automotive manufacturing and design.

In the newer seasons, filmed after Edd China's departure from the show, Ant Anstead served as the mechanic and continued to provide insight into the necessary mechanical work required to make each car unique. The show continued to impress its audience with a focus on rebuilding a wide array of classic cars, including some of the rarest models.

In conclusion, Wheeler Dealers is an informative and entertaining show that offers a unique look into the world of car restoration and flipping. The chemistry between the hosts, educational segments, and dramatic rebuilds combine to make it a must-watch show for car enthusiasts and anyone interested in the history of the world's most iconic cars.

Wheeler Dealers is a series that is currently running and has 26 seasons (313 episodes). The series first aired on December 8, 2023.
