I recently watched and watched again one the excellent biopics, on famous people, and on this occassion it was about Hattie Jaques, cars incuded an EType, which her long term lover gave her a lift home in-but I'm ETyped out right now, so what about some of the bread and butter classics in films-Carry on Cabbie featured some identikit airflow model Mk1 Cortinas, as well as the Black cabs-F something designations , not sure, but I remember going in them whatever as I do a Yellow Falcon in Sydney once.

As to our antipodian firend suggesting a theme on Carry on, ok I am for a change prepared tp stick to a rigid theme,ok carry on cars?

my first of many annual trips to Cornwall was in one the same colour, and shortly after they had some fearsome floads in Devon,

westayed in a caravan that would be a Classic now, on a farm , the Cosul was followed by 2 black Zephyrs and a brace of Mk 2 Zodis,Cream black and Grey on Cream, all of which had fuel fillers behind the spring loaded bumper, and even after we started staying near Padstow, the year of the world cup (we won), i shared a caravan with a future brother in law, who had a Mk 1 Consul, so it was more a case of carry on caravaning, thanks DP, great find

-any more please???
