Sad to see Edd China leaving the show. He will be missed.

Bummer. Edd working his magic really was the backbone of this show.

I wonder what Mike had to say about all this? These sorts of splits are never as black and white as they seem. Sure its an expensive show but there has to be more to it. If I do a search for WD's I can usually count on 20, 30 episodes or more. Some the same others from their vault. First the original Top Gear on the BBC channel although admittedly different circumstances, now WDs. I'll miss Ed for sure.

Wow! Had no idea. Guess it's all about the bottom line for these networks. I've enjoyed this show for years, still watch the reruns from time to time, gonna miss it & Edd!! Can't say I blame him for doing what he's doing, I'd prob do the same. Not happy with Mecum Auctions switch from Velocity to NBCSN either, so I've gone to watching it via youtube on my tv, minus all the commercials!

A buddy of mine told me this show once did an episode on a Porsche 928. As I had me one of those road rockets -- the first model year -- for about 7 years back in the late 80's, that's one episode I really want to see. I've been looking for it in the listings, but haven't come across it yet...

Agree 100% several times over. Edd's part of WD was my favorite and the Mecum clowns are clowns
Funny the original WD was depicted in Mike's used car dealership as how choose and buy the right car.
And what about Paul? The credit ( at least ) suggested he was the mechanic/guru behind WD.
I'll sure miss the format.

I rarely watch the weekend car shows due to the heavy product placements. Majority of the shows is a commercial of various sorts with very little real "how to". Edd gets a big "right on" from me for placing his integrity above making big bucks. He won't be interrupting a repair to sale a product. Good luck Edd.
