Plot Synopsis

CLASSIC CAR RESCUE follows Bernie Fineman and Mario Pacione, as they restore classic cars. Working to a tight deadline and an even tighter budget, they scour scrapyards, wasteland and backyards to find bargain wrecks with great potential. Having found the cars, they then need to source the rare, original parts and piece together the vital organs of these sleeping beasts to re-create their classic beauty. And, in a TV first, viewers in the UK had the opportunity to win the restored classic car at the end of each episode by entering weekly competitions. In each 60-minute episode, the pair transforms a different car, including: 1969 Jaguar E-Type Series 2; 1977 Porsche 911; 1976 MGB GT; 1969 Ford Mustang Convertible; 1954 Cadillac Coupe De Ville; and 1975 Morris Mini 1000. Discovery aired the U.S. premiere of this series on Monday, May 13, 2013 at 10pm ET/PT.
