There is no wheeler dealers show without Ed China. Where did you here that?
Edd China announced it in his Youtube channel. Sad really. He stated that the producers of the show wanted to change the formula and he is not comfortable with it.
Maybe Edd and Aaron can spin off a new show together. That would be interesting.

Thanks Superfly. Bad move on Velocity's part. Braking up a winning combo is not a plan for continued success .

Both shows are heavily scripted IMO, but I think Big Chief has the experience and the motor to win it

I hate Richard Rawlings with a passion and now literally all of these Velocity shows with a passion. I grew up on Wheeler Dealers and it's a disgrace now, especially since Edd China's partner drank the kool-aid and stayed on. It was the only show where they actually structured the show around the repairs instead of structuring the repairs around the show.

I remember flipping channels one night and they showed viewers at home reading questions to Richard and Aaron on Fast N Loud. I literally threw up in my mouth when I saw the type of people that watch the show and take the time to actually write in. When you have more people who care about what Richard puts in his hair vs. the cars, it's not a car show anymore. At least the racing on Street Outlaws is real, so I watch it for fun. Every other show they do is a joke. I wouldn't mind giving Christy Lee a ride though lol

I hope you got pics. Heather Storm is like taking the best of Kate Hudson and the young Meg Ryan.

Most "car" shows are not targeted at "car" guys. They are targeted at the same people that watch The Real Housewives and other trash shows.

One that I hate is Counting Cars. All about the buffoons in the shop and paint schemes out of the 70's. Never a mention about any of the mechanicals.

+2 on Christy and Heather lol

I liked both shows before this from the times I actually saw them. Richard seems like a dick but at the same time he annoys me a lot less than big chief. He cried more than a toddler over this entire thing. I can safely say I don't plan on watching either shows after seeing this mini series they had going on

I was really sad to hear about Ed leaving WD. It did seem like his attitude changed when they crossed the pond and started filming in CA. Been a fan of the show for many years and always loved how it never tried to compete with the more glam car shows out there and stayed true to its roots. Sounds like WD is heading down the tubes ....

I would pay top dollar for an Ed + Aaron show !
