Summary:PROG 5. SUBURBAN SPECIALS In this edition we visit some of the draughty garages of suburbia where otherwise ordinary folk harbour their secret automotive obsessions. Dave Marson is a tool maker from Wolverhampton whose evenings and weekends are spent restoring a nineteen seventy Cortina 1600E to the condition it was in when it left the ford factory at Dagenham twenty years ago. For Dave "the age of the computer ruined car design - I'd like to see some of these lads with computers given a piece of paper and told to design a car." Suburban Specials is an affectionate look at the eccentricity, skill and fun in owning a time capsule on wheels from the fifties, sixties and seventies.
