After being expelled from one school too many, Bernie Fineman got a job in a garage when he was 13 years old. On his first day he hit the foreman across the face with a broom handle. 50 years later he??s still working in garages and still has a fiery temper, as anyone who has tried to cheat a customer or seen one of his many series for Discovery UK and Channel 5 will testify. Not for nothing is Bernie called the Original Motor Mouth. Growing up in the post-war East End with a welder for a mother and a bare-knuckle fighter for a father, life was tough in every sense. But as well as toughness, Bernie also inherited a determination and willingness to graft from his parents, and despite leaving school with no qualifications Bernie has risen to become one of the most respected and famous mechanics in the UK. This is the remarkable story of 50 years in the motor trade that has seen Bernie go from Kray Twins fixer to becoming indispensable to the Metropolitan Police, via South Africa, Bangladesh, the jungles of Central America, and more. Dodgy motors and dodgy characters abound in this rollicking and unlikely ride.
