    Great video for all you petrol heads the man the legend Edd China

    Boy do I miss this guy, he and I are almost the same age. I think he would be a great friend to anyone.

    Yeah I did see him at Automechanika either last year or three years ago, kind of sticks out of the crowd (he is 6'7'')

    As a fully trained professional mechanic who has been in the trade in excess of 50 years, I find Ed China far from a legend. From his descriptions of parts and tools I doubt he is “time served”. If you watch Wheeler Dealers you will soon see the economics do not add up.

    Well, from my experience, he is. I never said he was the best mechanic ever, but his explanations and what seemed to be his work on the cars, he’s more of a legend than most.

    And yes, as an entertainment show the economics definitely did not add up.
