Not car related, but my Dad had this jingle stuck in his head today:

 

I remember seeing that a lot, they get driven away in a Ford Zephyr Mk2 soft top at the end.  "Big" Ron Tarr, Chris "Mike" Ryan & Brian "Flying Picket" Hibbard?

The short one is Daniel Peacock, he also appeared in one of the "Wot no meat?" ads for British meat. Was also Mental Mickey' in the episode of Only Fools and Horses where Rodney formed a band ("I DO THE ONE-TWO-THREE-FOURS!!!")

Funny, I was going to post this one. I only remember it because I caught the last half of it on VHS recording something off channel 4 in 1988 and it is the first thing on the tape. Still got the tape, somewhere. Don't have anything to play it on though.

Peacock was also in this which my Dad fondly remembers: 

(With bonus MK1 Transit action)

He also adapted The Diary Of a Teenage Health Freak for TV, & appeared in it as Peter's Dad.

Loved this one, bloody clever at the time!

Still is very clever, when you think of the shite being pumped out now.

He played Toby in the 1980's film "Party Party" with lots of other unknown actors, some now famous.

Great film if you were a teenager back then, as it is of its time. 

Fair bit of Mark III Cortina action too, and a great soundtrack.

Does anyone remember the cosmetic advert (possibly Insignia) made around 1990 & set in the future where towards the end of the Ad the 20 something  star walks past a woman of the same age & says "Hi Gran!".  She looked a bit like Kylie Minogue.

There was a later ad where the Gran explained what the buttons on her arm did, apart from one!

There's mad, and then there's Grace Jones:

Citroën. L'origine de la tecnologie créative.

Spitting Image did a brilliant piss take of this, comparing ‘French car’ which showed the CX driving out of Grace’s head and then ‘British car’ where a generic gormless idiot rubber head coughed out a Corgi Mini Metro!

Was there an Allegro one with the Nolan Sisters, or have I just dreamt that?

The tagline was ‘Allegro’s got vroom for Five’ which also featured on posters (there’s a famous pic of Red Robbo holding a union meeting in front of one of these ads). 

The TV ad definitely featured 1970s ‘glamorous’ ladies, maybe the Nolans just did the song and Pans People or similar did the leggy bits.

Presumably you mean this one? Not the Nolans nor Pans People though.
