PostSubject: New Car Series - Thanet Classics Nominations    Wed May 30, 2012 4:32 am

Hello Everyone,
I am currently casting for a new car series and thought I would bring it to the clubs attention. I have copied out outreach email below, please contact me if you have any suggestions or nominations but remember KEEP IT A SECRET!:

my name is Josh Bloom and I am a Producer at Renegade
Pictures. We have been commissioned by Nat Geo (The
National Geographic HD channel on Sky) to make a
programme in which we take people's old cars and
secretly restore them to their former glory. Let me
explain more....

We are looking for someone who owns a much loved older
car that has fallen into disrepair. Friends or family
of this person, knowing how much this car means to them
and that they will never get round to doing it up
themselves, nominate them as potential candidates for
this programme. Our plan is to then secretly take this
car away, and service, paint and repair it until it's
as close to original condition as we can manage. We
then present it back to the very appreciative owner.

might be an opportunity for you to give something back
to a generous and kind soul or someone who has fallen
ill and needs cheering up? Maybe somebody who started a
project but no longer has the funds to complete the
job? Or perhaps somebody whose car failed its MOT 10
years ago, is locked away in a garage, has particular
sentimental value and it would bring huge joy into
their lives to enjoy it on the road again.

The car will need to be from the late 1950s until the
late 1980s and can be anything from an old Mini to a
Ford Sierra, and while we do wish to work on
interesting cars, time and budgets mean we won't be
doing up any Maseratis or Bentleys I'm afraid.

If you have somebody in mind and would like to give a
gift to a deserving member of your family or community
please contact me either by phone or email.


Our goal is to keep the recommission
secret from the owner so if you have somebody in mind
please don't mention the show to them at any
If you are successful in your nomination we will then
tell you more about how it will all work

Please call or email any time.
