This fall,  the ultimate tag-team of automotive authority and mechanical mastery take to the streets in the ultimate hunt for prize cars that bring home the bacon. WHEELER DEALERS is the definitive auto restoration series with a sharp British wit, as veteran car dealer Mike Brewer and ace mechanic Edd China embark on a mission to locate and restore iconic cars that turn a serious profit.  This season they are on an international road trip, finding and fixing rare classic cars while offering expert automotive advice for viewers along the way. WHEELER DEALERS returns with all-new episodes on Velocity Wednesday, September 12 at 9:00PM (ET/PT). 

“Mike and Edd are both quintessential Velocity men – experts and entrepreneurs who are ridiculously entertaining on screen,” said Bob Scanlon Senior Vice President of Velocity. “This all-new season showcases their unparalleled passion for the entire automotive process as well as their uncanny ability to close a deal.”

WHEELER DEALERS follows Mike as he scours the automotive universe  in search of unfound four-wheeled treasures. He then hands them over to Edd who tackles everything from bare metal re-sprays to full engine transplants in order to bring these vehicles back to their former glory. When the jobs are complete, the duo takes the final definitive test-drive to determine if Mike attempts to sell the car for a tidy profit

In the all-new season of WHEELER DEALERS, Mike travels across the pond for a coast-to-coast U.S. adventure in search of the best of “Automotive Americana.”  Back in Europe, he spans the UK, France and Italy for the most prized motors from the Olde World’s most-storied manufactures.  From a bargain deal on a rusted Fiat Dino, to a rock bottom price on an AC Cobra fixer-upper, to  a steal on a classic British Morgan, Mike and Edd unveil their extraordinary expertise in this all-new season of the thrilling “finders keepers” show on four wheels.
