For those of you who don’t know the TV show, Car SOS is a programme that takes unrestored cars that have been sat in their owners’ garages for years and restores them without them knowing. Helped by the family of the owner, some of these stories are exceptionally touching. This story was one of them. I was asked by the family to photograph the reveal of the car to the owner, who sadly suffers from Parkinson’s disease and won’t be able to drive much longer. The sons wanted him to have a chance to drive his car before he lost his license. On the actual day of filming, it was a dismal day in December at Layer Marney Tower in Essex and typically, the car decided that it was going to have some issues starting. However, the problems were fixed in the end and the programme shows the owner lovingly drive around the local area of the tower. You can watch the show again later this month on the National Geographic Channel.
