Set in 1981? My generation of Charmant came out in 1981, wonder if they'll give one of the characters one? (no)

Lovely Quattro! - just like the one I've shown in my Goodwood pictures but at the opposite end of the model life span.

Where will this ever end?

Should I look forward to Gene Hunt in 1996 razzing around in an early Mondeo to the strains of drum'n'bass.

Oh sorry - that was far too subtle for me. :roll:

Still not sure why your IMG link didn't work.....I assume you saved it to your own image bank before linking to it?

That's the people who supplied the cars for you! In case you were wondering, that really IS half a roof rack supporting the lights, I spoke to the man who lashed it together.....
The good news is that series 2 has a better quality of cars and vans in it, some of em mine.....

only police car anoraks will give a monkeys though... looked convincing enough on the telly.I didnt hear anyone in my house say "ooh look that isnt a correct period police light bar" :lol: I was more concerned about them pulling any handbrake turns etc in it... unless its had a lot of welding, it must be pretty collander-esque underneath by now.

There was also a Sherpa cop van, but I'd just missed snapping that, and Phil Glenister, darn it.

Yer the quattro is a bit of a boob. Headlights and bumpers date that one as a post '84, Also, they wern't imported to the UK until Spring 1981, but LHD only, and with the quad square lamps.
