I remember watching that and the original Saint when they came out and to the States in their b&w glory. Instead of the Avengers it may have been Secret Agent Man....
Yeah, but more importantly: Purdey :love:

Reminds me of the Corgi replica of The Saint car I had as a kid. Miss my Corgis, they were great.

What's the car in the clips, is that a Bristol? [very £££, hand-built oddity].

I had a Corgi silver Aston Martin, which was re: Roger Moore as James Bond. You could flip little levers and take each wheel off, then press a button and a 'missile-defence' shield flipped up behind the rear window... probably still amongst 'the rest' in my parents attic...

Volvo P1800 was the car. I've always wanted a P1800ES (shooting brake or what us yanks call a station or estate wagon). The original Saint car, P958-X2 with the tag of ST1, is currently in the Volvo Museum.
Life isn't about avoiding the bruises. It's about collecting the scars to prove we showed up for it!

Haha, brings back several happy memories of the terrier puppies we used to have.
- Barking at the static tennis ball
- Seeing reflection in mirror [shock]
- Trying to pick up ice cube, then repeatedly failing and going 'funny' about it...

:lol:

He means Corgi, the model car manufacturer.

However, we used to raise Corgis when I was a teen. We raised not Pembrokes (the Queen's dogs) but Cardigans. We had a Champion Red & White male, a tri-colour bitch that was Obedience trials trained and a breeder and a blue merle that was Show stock as well (one of a litter of 8 blues bred with the tri-colour bitch and a Blue Merle Male - very unusual as you normally only have one or two in the entire litter.

OhMG, deja vu moment. I'm getting flashbacks (perhaps literally lol) to student days and a mate having some ancient Volvo (pre their 70s+on diversion to boxy-ness).

... Somehow the name 'Volkswagen Variant' is coming into the frame too ... hmmm

I can't remember how many Corgis I had, I know I had an XKE and the Green Hornet black sedan with working missiles, and the James Bond Aston Martin, but probably mostly race cars like the Ford GT.

Lumley, yes. a late 60s-early 70s hottie, when hotties were hot.

I like it, a bit brutish, better if you could get the hood down, a chill-box and some bikini-chix in the back ....

He's an Autobot named "Big Daddy". Pretty apt, I think.

440 Roadrunner. Probably running a 6 pack on top as well. Bout the only thing purdier than a 440 6-pack with chrome pots on the top was a 426 Hemi with Dual Quads when talking about normally aspirated big iron.
