Car S.O.S (2012)

Car enthusiast and TV presenter Tim Shaw and master mechanic Fuzz Townshend head to Eastbourne on the south coast on a quest to secretly restore a 1962 Mini Cooper S. This particular model is the property of farmer Keith, who has raced and rallied cars for most of his life, until he was struck down with serious heart problems. Although his racing days are now over, Keith can't let go of his beloved Mini Cooper, even though it has been rotting away in a shed for decades. After the boys steal the vehicle and get it back to the workshop, they soon discover that this is no ordinary car. In fact, it has a full racing engine, albeit catastrophically seized. The decision not only to restore Keith's motor but also to transform it into a Monte Carlo-winning replica is controversial. Will Keith approve when his car is eventually unveiled?
