Willson presented Top Gear for a decade, is an award-winning motoring
journalist, writes for numerous national newspapers and magazines,
and has campaigned successfully for stuff like fairer new car prices
and cheaper fuel with his million signature FairFuelUK campaign.
He’s the bloke who saves us billions – literally.
But when he’s not scrapping with the government about petrol
prices he’s got a serious weakness for classic cars. As well
as creating the first TV classic car show on the BBC, The Car’s
The Star, he’s written loads of books, been a columnist for
hard-core old car magazines for years, and bought and sold hundreds
of pensionable old motors from Mini Coopers to Maserati Ghiblis.
Thursday 5th February sees the start of The
Classic Car Show, 7pm on Channel 5. The 13-episode series, which
is to look at the phenomenon of the classic car, is fronted by Quentin
model and racing driver Jodie Kidd. Watch the trailer below or for
