Ant loved the vette once behind the wheel.

I think Ant did a partial job on the clutch, he did not replace the slave or rear main seal. If you are dropping the drive line to do a clutch, do the rear main and clutch slave. There in no sense in doing this job twice.
I did possibly see a better way to fix the rocking seats though.

Mike said at $16K, "it was more bang for the buck than they ever bought before."

Typical unwarranted British hate for American sports cars. Sheep following the Jeremy Clarkson playbook.

Yes, I've speaking to many's pre-conceived notions of Corvettes without driving them, because of ******* like Jeremy Clarkson with their biases (and the masses listen to it as gospel).

Man oh man I think my next Vette will be a Z06. That show was awesome would watch it again. They did one way back with a 68 convertible. When I was looking this spring I looked at C4 LT4's, ZR1's, and Z06's. But they have got me wanting one now. I love the look of the fixed roof coup.

The most interesting part which I'm surprised no one mentioned is the repair to the ECBM.

Ant usually never gets excited about any car. He sure did enjoy driving it and he really knew how.

Excellent paint correction explanation.

In the wrap up they listed the clutch cost at $269.00. For all the work, they only spent $269.00 on a clutch for a Z06! Of course they were flipping it.

I never understood why so many Brits hate the Vette...must be out of jealousy because they don't make anything that'll compete with it...

For everyone saying that Ant didn't like the Corvette until the end when he got to drive it, you do realize that the show is scripted? Who knows what he really thinks. I do miss the old, early episodes of Wheeler Dealer with Edd China and the tiny budget it seemed much more authentic.
