Woop-woop! That's the sound of da police!

Oh fuck, yeah :-)

I had these non-Recaro checked GL-type seats in a gold Mk3 3.0S about 30 years ago and very fine they were too. Sort of 3.0S base. My one had a steel sunroof though. I don't think the car in the pic had a tilty-slidey sunroof.

 

Every 3.0S for sale now seems to have the optional extra-cost Recaros which were mega comfy but were a bit more fragile and didn't wear so well. A bit like every Mk2 RS2000 being a factory "Custom" now.

I had one of these from Santa, in 1974 I think.

Press the roof-light and it says police things. A battery-operated tape-loop thing.

Fuckin fantastic when you're 6.

Still is :-)

Probably some on ebay for peanuts if anyone interested, I think they were made by Tomy.

Beat me to it!! I love that someone built a replica and went so far as to obtain a near-identical registration mark for it. The MoT history of which suggesting that the world's most rotten Galaxie was used as the starting point.

Cauty and Drummond fucked it up at that KLF thing in Liverpool last September. The owner was unpleased.

Still got my triumph in its box.

Do you know the other sounds it made?

I seem to remember "Calling All Cars" or something like that. I think it had something like ten different sounds which it would play in random order.

 

After a few years I took my one to bits and it must have just got binned. It maybe got customised with different wheels then crashed or set on fire. It was meant to be a 2000 but the proportions were more like a Doloshite or a Toledo.

Yes of course it's bogus, I was just messin about for a few minutes with a free picsart app on my tablet, (kwality "alterations"), wasn"t sure if anyone would even notice it :-)

 

Unless anyone else knows different . . . stranger things have happened than the BL production of a 2-door 1275 Princess.

 

Like the 1275cc Rover SD1 5-speed.

 

Or the slant transverse-straight-8 3600 Landcrab to be badged as a Triumph.

I always wonder how they choose the unmarked cars. Got passed on the motorway yesterday by not one but two Skoda Superb estates flashing them blue lights. Red one looked totally wrong with them but I guess that's the point.

See some really odd unmarked stuff in London regularly - VW Touran, Hyundai ix35 etc. Proper mundane unexpected stuff. Like you say, I guess that’s the point :D

some is driver training for plod,  some is driver training for  Ambulance services or FRS , some is Ambulance or FRS Officers  ... - also donlt forget you've got MetPlod, CityPlod and a load of BTP both NR and TfL funded )  this is before considering  any  unspecified  Government agency   activity
