After Angus had posted details on the 928 list regarding a 928 being required for filming in the Leeds area, I emailed them direct with a few pictures. The next day had a call from them saying they liked my car and would I come on the show.
So the day was set for 29th July for filming in Leeds but two weeks before the show I had a call to say that could I come along to the Classic car at Capesthorne Hall in Cheshire instead?
We turn up at the show about 9.00am, Jason and Penny came along later.
I hand a sheet out to Jason about the cars speed, acceleration, cost etc. He had already been on the Internet and downloaded some information about the car for the show. He said that he had owned a 1992 928 GT and had liked it very much because of its acceleration and handling but was not too happy about the MPG if he drove it hard. We all know that the MPG is not one of the 928’s strong points.
I moved the car into position with the house in the back ground. One of the film crew quickly cleaned the wheels and screen of grass and fly’s.
The sun was out for a change and no black clouds in sky. The filming took about an hour, they filmed Jason first and then did it again filming what Penny was to say.
They where having a laugh and a joke about Jason having a 928 bought by his girlfriend when he was fourteen years old and Penny was asking him how come he had a girlfriend at fourteen but you will have to wait till the show comes out and see what I mean.
They also filmed a BMW Z1 also for Teenage Kicks along with a Citroen 2CV and where going to pick two other cars from the Classic show to film that Jason liked.
We then stopped till dinner time and went off for a pub meal.
I will post on the 928 list later when I know what date the show will be shown. The Used Car Roadshow website is www.usedcarroadshow.co.uk
