They shattered the mould.

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:

Just had to hear that theme song after all this

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.

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.
