English, not Brits please. Nobody in Scotland with any integrity would ever watch an English soap.

You are missing my point... regardless of what country this is made in, how come it has so few grabs?

Because it's mostly made in a studio. Most of the scenes are interiors and even some of the outside shots are made on the Granada lot. Also, it's a soap, theoretically about people in a very confined space, so cars are mostly unnecessary and hence so are grabs of them. That said, I can remember a Morris Eight Series E from Corrie's black & white days ...

1939 Tourer, belonging to Harry Hewitt (Ivan Beavis), husband (eventually) of Concepta (Doreen Keogh), father to Lucille, and drinking pal of Len Floorcloth. Where is a screengrab of Fred's Rover sinking in the lake?

Weird how the brain works, I can't remember where I've put the car keys, but I can remember that stuff.

A few days ago I downloaded a few episodes just to satisfy my curiosity and I saw quite a few cars despite it being an obvious studio lot. In one scene there was a Ford Focus sedan taxi, and in the background was a Mazda 626 hatchback clearly visible. In another scene some guys were loading goods into an older Ford pickup truck (Ranger or whatever it was called in the UK). So don't give up on this show :) I would do it myself except I don't have access to free-to-air British TV (I think it's on pay TV here in Australia, but there's no way to transfer it digitally to a PC to get captures).

I wouldn't bother, most of the cars that appear fall right into the grey porridge variety, like most of the plots.

Great that someone has finally started adding pics for this show. About time after 54 years!

@autocarguy88 Are you in America watching Coronation Street? As all the everyday cars are "unknown"...

It's just a little odd that you're watching an old British soap, the unknowns aren't really a problem. Episode 2531 would be 7/3/1985 ?
I would certainly limit it to cars that have a role.
Or if you're just watching for the cars there may be more worthwhile projects.

How much more is there? How many episodes still to do from your sources?

@autocarguy88 I'm saying what you have is scattered episodes with thousands missing. The ep. count is 8343.
The page looks alright as validators have made a selection, but there are still things like...
/vehicle_690994-Vauxhall-Astra-1992.html
/vehicle_695868-Volkswagen-Golf-Typ-19E.html
/vehicle_687074-Ford-Sierra-1986.html
/vehicle_692395-Fiat-Punto-1994.html
... those are all unnecessary. I'm not saying stop with the show if that's what you want to do.

as chico's comment, I'd say carry on if you're enjoying it. You're finding a nice selection of ordinary stuff which is probably a good sample of what was actually on the streets at the time, rather than selected by film makers. And that shows some of the unusual or forgotten sub-versions which we don't often get highlighted, so I'm enjoying what comes up. So for reference material, it's got some very useful stuff scattered through it.

But bear in mind that because so many of the entries are inevitably 1* and unexceptional, validators will probably reject a high proportion of entries. If you're happy to accept that - excellent. If you don't know UK/European cars very well (as you say on a comment somewhere), keep posting and let the rest of us sort out what to keep or discard, although perhaps use your judgement whether a car has enough detail visibility to be properly identifiable, rather than trying to post everything.

Finally, because all these soaps (Coronation St, Eastenders etc) are to me total rubbish which I can't stand watching, I salute your dedication for the cause.
