    Been watching it from the start of the series. I still think the best one they did so far in Chop Shop is the first one (the Sumo). Mind you, they're doing the MGB next week... should prove interesting

    Did you see the "prequel" to Chop Shop (Bangla Bangers) where Bernie went to India to meet / work with Leepu? For my money, the Ferrari lookalike they did is still the best looking thing Leepu has done - better than the Sumo.

    Leepu's designs certainly have a very distinctive look to them!

    NTL Pete is the way forward

    That Jag was awesome thanks for the link.

    All it needed was a interior and engine overhaul and that would be a lovely show car.
