Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Presented by Britain's Channel 4, the weekly half-hour series Trading Up was a combination game show and computer-tips effort. On each episode, a group of contestants were given the opportunity to trade in their automobiles for better, newer models. Car experts Russell Bulgin and Roger Firth were on hand to help the contestant make the best possible choices, and to assess the value of the "older" vehicles. Hosted by pert Claudia Winkelman, the six-episode Trading Up was seen in 1999.
