Watching it now and they bought a 510 off some guy named James who's got 510s all over his property. I'm pretty sure I've been to James house yearrrrss ago maybe a couple of times.

Without Edd China it's not Wheeler Dealer any more, it's Wanker Dealer now.

I cannot stand that British douche. Please shut up! New mechanic is not as good as the original.  Watched for the 510, was disappointed. 

JDM Legends is a far superior show.


Rear Wheel Drive, the way God intended.
If a car is being pulled from the front, doesn't that mean it's being towed?

I was cool to see James on TV, but that was the best part. I wish took more time to show that place.

It was awesome to see James and his famous/infamous Dime Arcade, and it's always great to see a Datsun getting love bombed on national tv. Wheeler Dealer was one of the better car shows around, and I've been watching it for years. I loved the 240Z episode, and I've always wanted to see them crack into a 510. So finally seeing it happen, but in the hands of this made for tv wanker with New and Improved scripted reality was disappointing. As selfish as it might be, I wanted to hear what my old buddy Edd has to say about the greatest car of all time.

James had posted a picture months ago but was told to take it down by the producers.  Pretty cool to see the keeper on there luckly for the show he was wearing cloths.


Do it in a Datsun

They showed the engine bay in the beginning, but conspicuously left it out in the reveal scene because it was not pained and still ratty. As for the interior, I don't recall anything being shown, but they said it was "sent out" to be done. They sure as hell made a big deal out of adding a tack though.  :rofl:
