I saw this show the other day called Le Salvager, I think its also called "The Salvager". For anyone who doesn't know, it's about this English guy who lives in France and builds things from materials he can buy from a scrap yard. I love building things out of old scrap material. That's why I love the show so much. I think it was broadcast in 2003 so I never ever saw the original episodes.
Anyone else seen this show? Thoughts?

    FYI I didn't see the original episodes because I didn't know it was being put on the TV, not because I wasn't born.. :)

    Never heard of it, but I do confess to occasionally watching 'Scrapheap Challenge' and having numerous boxes of nuts, bolts, bits of metal and anything that "might come in handy in case I need to build something in the future" in the garage :lol:

    My memory tells me that lurking somewhere on this forum is Le Salvager's son. I am sure I read a thread about this last year. This is not a joke response either!

    Pffft! Anyone can do that. Now if he'd made a car out of a chaise longue, now that would be impressive!
