Bangers & Cash follows the Mathewsons - a dynasty of classic car auctioneers from picturesque North Yorkshire. The charismatic and friendly family hunt for rare vehicles to sell and they uncover some remarkable and heartwarming stories behind the cars as they do.
Derek collects a cherished Jaguar MkII and explains why they made such poor getaway cars for 1960's bankrobbers. Customers play find the gear box after the arrival of one of Britain's most scrapped cars, the Morris Marina. A customer weighs it up as a Christmas present for his wife. and Dave collects a selection of quirky cars and three wheelers to go under the hammer -including a Morgan, a Noble 200 and a Goggomobile.
A near-perfect ‘50s Chevy panel van and a very desirable low-mileage ‘80s Brooklands Capri tempt auctioneer Derek out of Yorkshire, but traffic chaos on the way to Wales puts him way behind schedule. "I can't be late, I've got no pyjamas" ...says a worried Derek as he realises he is going to have to overnight across the border.
Safely back in Yorkshire, he evaluates the cars ahead of the auction - two of the best he has seen. The vehicles' owners have high expectations, the reserves are top end - and the auction is days away.
Paul picks up a stunning Matchless Model X motorbike which attracts a lot of pre-auction attention from some vintage motorcycle fans, and Derek and grandson Charlie spend the day at Stokesley Classic Car Show. It's not a relaxing day out for the pair as they've been set a monumental task - valuing the 200 classic cars.
The summer brings an increase in business for Yorkshire classic car auctioneers. To keep pace, the Mathewsons introduce their new "multiple classic collection plan", much to the amusement of office manager Sarah. Dave sets off to collect a Triumph TR6, a Lotus Cortina and a Mini Mayfair wedding car and bring them back to the auction house.
The team heads to The Wirral for a rare survivor, a DAF 33 from the ‘70s. "It's a car that had a bit of an image issue back in the day, but it also had a gearbox ahead of its time," says Derek - as everyone tries to explain how it works before the car is auctioned off.
Auctioneer Derek ventures across The Channel to repatriate a very elegant 1960s' Bentley S3 which the French don't want - because it's right-hand drive.
A well-restored Ford Fiesta XR2 sets the auction alight and there is fierce competition for the eighties' classic, showing that there is still a good market for classic fast Fords.
And there's a very rare appearance when a cult classic turns up. The Mini Moke, a car made famous in ‘60s TV classic The Prisoner is released for auction. It may be impractical, it is uncomfortable - but will it fetch good money when the hammer comes down?
A delightful collection of pre-loved and well-looked after British classics comes up for auction, including an Austin A35, a Wolseley 16/60, a Ford Fiesta Popular and a rare Hillman Avenger Estate. The collection stirs many fond memories from potential buyers at the vehicle auction, but is that enough to make them raise their hands and bid for the British classics? Meanwhile, when the time comes to sell a much-loved and enjoyed ‘E' type Jag, its Yorkshire owner finds it hard to let go.
