It is in German but you get the idea.

That is a great show, wish I could understand them.

There was on on the restoration of a 73 911 Porsche that was really good.

Wow great find itzdshtz!

Wink

Its not often that new to me Vanagon media pops up here.
That's a gold mine of a find! Even if it is in German. Awesome!
I didn't even go out for lunch. Just stayed in and watched the first three episodes. Back to work now I guess Rolling Eyes I'll watch the rest tonight.

Thanks for the post.

The last episode we could view has a date of October 20, 2007. So this is a current show. Can't figure out the intervals though.

I think it is an eight part series, some lucky guy or girl will end up with it because they can win the vehicle in the last episode. You can see some the questions in the lower part of the screen. Pray

Here is episode # 8, interesting how they get the cooling fluid in, pull a vacuum in the cooling system and the fluid gets sucked into the engine.
I guessed wrong, there are more than 8 episodes.

Works great with Firefox!

I bet you don't have an Adobe Flash player installed. You need that to play the video.
