Bernie Fineman

Bernie is a highly experienced automotive manager, master technician, workshop controller and technical engineer. He’s never happier than when under the bonnet of a car and always works with a smile on his face, but he doesn’t suffer fools gladly and his straight talking attitude means he takes no prisoners!

Bernie’s technical knowledge and vast experience with Mercedes Benz, BMW, Jaguar, Range Rover, Rolls-Royce, Porsche, Ford, Audi, VW and many other Marques make him a force to be reckoned with in the motoring world.

When it comes to automotive television Bernie is a household name! Before “Classic Car Rescue” Bernie was best known for his role in three series of “Chop Shop”, one of Discovery Europe’s most popular shows ever and making him a star for petrol heads all over the world. The first series, “Bangla Bangers”, tested his skills to the limit as he worked with the most basic equipment in Bangladesh. He then returned home for “Chop Shop: London Garage” and finally built remarkable vehicles for stars such as Jools Holland, Johnny Vegas, Martin Kemp, Lawrence Dallaglio and David Ginola

Having given decades of service to the motor industry with his natural charm and cheeky banter (along with the occasional colourful outburst), Bernie is undoubtedly a legend of the East End!
