Mike, clearly exasperated, said: “I just want to respond to the stuff on Twitter (X) about profit.

“The show has been going for 21 years and I have explained this over and over again. We are not a service garage.

“If I buy a car for five grand , spend four on it, and then sell it for ten, I have made a grand.

“That is not hard to work out.

“We are not a service garage. Just two guys fixing cars up. We are happy to take a grand proft.

“Sometimes a car might need a set of new tyres and we might get sponsored by a tyre company. So I can’t put a price on tyres when they are free.”

He also expressed some frustration with questions about the man hours that the mechanics put in the show.

Wheeler Dealers hosts Mike Brewer & ‘Elvis’ Priestley transform battered ‘super rare’ car into ‘state-of-the-art’ motor

Mike then promised fans that the show would be “back on very soon.”

He only recently transformed a “super rare” car into a “state-of-the-art” motor.

He tasked mechanic expert Elvis to transform a 30-year-old rusty Mark 1 Astra GTE.

The iconic car is so rare there are only eight on the road in the UK since it launched in the 1980s.

Mike, who bought the second-hand model for just £7,000 aimed to bring it back to life.

He said: “We’ve bought a super rare Mark 1 Astra GTE. There are as few as eight on the road in the UK today and the aim is to make that nine.”

While the body and replacement bonnet are away having their paintwork touched up, mechanic Elvis works on the engine.

In the YouTube video, he took the gear box out and separated the different parts to inspect it

He said: “This engine has been sat unlubricated and unloved for the past for the last 30 years.

“This engine hasn’t been turned over for a long time and I can already see some serious signs of corrosion.”

After opening the engine apart, he spots a “horrible” look.

He added: “That oil pickup is covered in disgusting sludge. But I’ve never seen one looking like that before.”

But things only get worse.
