There was a nice 5a with trims during closing shots in London.

Any idea who the car belongs to?

It really is an amazing website.......Who on earth has taken all that time to collate all that information about what vehicle appeared in what celluloid production - it's mind-boggling! :shock:

I’m continually looking for the tv show of Boone. A long filming day in Nottingham with my freshly painted pearlescent white GTC GOX 914W. Starring Michael Elphick and “Rocky” Neil Morrisey amongst others. Back in the early nineties the GTC had been fitted with a full set of Middlebridge leather seats by Graham Walker after I bought them from the demise of Middlebridge.

Hi Jim
That wasn’t the right show that we appeared in. It was a classic car show/parade with “rocky” on the podium. I also took my Volvo P1800E but it wasn’t shown in the TV program.
