Lee and Fraser are a duo of working class mechanics in their twenties from Barry, who buy beaten up bangers under
the hammer, and turn their cheap scrapheap bargains into big bucks. Unashamedly ambitious, unapologetically rude and flippin’ shrewd - hold
onto your seats as we enter the world of The Backstreet Banger Boys…Sales front man Fraser – aka Facer – is a former teenage rally car driver who is more used to purring Porsches than bashed up bangers. After failing to wear ear defenders at a junior supercar rally, Fraser suddenly lost his hearing, and now at 24, with his hearing severely impaired, he is
forced to wear hearing aids. Sadly during the same period his mother was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer.
Pooling all family funds to raise some money for her intensive treatment, Fraser was forced to quit rallying, and now in his twenties he’s forged a new career alongside best mate Lee - flippin’ beaten up bangers down a backstreet in Barry.
Fondly known as the The Backstreet Banger Boys, Fraser andLee attends car auctions in Port Talbot, Merthyr and Newport to find an auction steal that will make them a quick deal.
The mechanical minded mates can spot a golden lot a mile off, using their business savvy sense and years of under the bonnet and behind the wheel experience, they strive to make a pretty penny out of a beaten-up banger. From the collective
sum of money in their pockets, they purchase low cost - crashed, hammered and high mileage vehicles - that are more
ready for the scrap heap than the showroom.
In their backstreet garage in Barry, the Banger Boys rip out, replace and revamp their wheels to make a deal - earning
anything from £100 - £10,000 per sale. In a Post Covid. & Brexit Britain heading for the biggest recession in recent times, we’ll watch as this
entertaining, positively practical duo of engineering backstreet boys, try to make a
buck in a tough, uncompromising world.As an over-arching narrative to the series, the Backstreet Banger Boys want to turn their serious side-hustle into a full time business. Currently a three day a week commitment, this part time venture allows Fraser and Lee to fix up one banger per week - and make on
average £500 per 3k car.
Their business model is a baton passing relationship; Fraser buys a car at auction, then Lee (the ‘Ed China’ of Barry) fixes it up, Fraser uses his rally experience to test drive the new refurbished vehicle, and employs his sales prowess and charm to sell it at the local caravan park in Sully - with a little help from their social media secretary and exotic. dancer Kumari.
But to make a buck and keep their bargain banger business going, they have to balance
busy lives – working two jobs alongside their complicated personal lives…
