cars of the stars quiz (no googling allowed ; - ))

For some reason the other night I was thinking about a couple of motors "owned" by characters on soaps - and I wondered if any of you could remember these particular ones. Also, feel free to pose any similar questions.

 

First - what car did Max Farnham of Brookside own?

 

Second - what car did Annie Walker of Coronation street own?

Bill Maynard of The Gaffer would probably have been an Autoshiter, remember his motor?

Another P6 with a rear seat cover made of parking tickets.

The opening credits in Brookside showed which cars and who did they belong to?

 

What car did Barry Grant drive into the sea?

 

What was the car that Derek (married to Mavis) drive as a rep?

 

If you ask me any questions about soaps after 2000, I will have no idea.

Barry Grant, sank a S2 XJ6 on the beach, as befitted an 80's stereotype Scouse Scally.

 

Derek possibly had a Chevette, I'm not sure, but in an episode I caught a few minutes of yesterday he was driving a CF with a big walktru body and sliding doors.

I thought it had been a Maestro when he was flogging staplers but my memory is not the best of that period....Didn't the car have a gurt big plastic paper clip on the roof?

In answer to a couple,

 

In the first episodes of Brookside, the cars were (from bottom left),

Gaz's BMW E21 320, Heather's black/yellow 2CV Charleston, The Collins' Rover 3500SE and Bobby Grant's Princess HL.

 

There was a rough Renault 12 estate, later on, owned by Billy Corkhill, replaced with a brown Datsun Sunny.

 

Derek's famous car in Corrie was a bright green Corsa B with a giant paperclip on the roof!

The cars very often ARE the stars of the show, but what "private" wheels did the following have? 

 

Kenneth "Hutch" Hutchinson 

 

Det. Sgt. George Carter  (and for a bonus, his car in his latest / last TV Cop role)

 

Sgt. Oscar Blaketon

Good man - that Maestro idea just didn't feel right!
