If it is about the year coding, here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_car_number_plates

DVLA is sometimes offline but a good source of information if you know the registration number and vehicle make.
http://www.vehiclelicence.gov.uk/EvlPortalApp/
Go to 'Vehicle Enquiry'.

"Interestingly, about this time a blue CH featured in two episodes of the infamous ITV cop show ‘The Sweeney’. In one it was the steed of a pair of charming Australian con men and in the other a particularly nasty hoodlum’s motor."

Just checked on the top TV-series ..and funnily enough 'the Sweeney' is tied in 13th place with 'Starsky & Hutch' (both having 238 cars each in one season.! :) ) Both shows also had 4-seasons each .. and both started in 1975 (sweeney finishing in december '78 & S&H in may'79) ..also both Top shows of their time in UK & USA.
It will be interesting to see the car/vehicle count after all seasons are completed for both.

I have only three episodes to go from Starsky and Hutch first season. I reckon that there is 20-30 cars in those episodes so the total for the first season could be around 250 cars. 250 cars by 4 seasons is 1000 cars for the entire serie. Ofcourse I haven't add eg. all FoMoCo products because there have been so many of them, I add only if it's a new colour/model combination (for example Ford LTD).

If it's okay with you I could continue with season 2 ?

Well, it will be like most of other series: at a point you do not find many new cars, they are just identical/similar models to those already listed and so they can go in the comments of existing cars. Which do not increase the number of cars of the series anymore ;)

Not so many in later series (3&4) ..but a few early on with jaguar S-types (can't recall the episode numbers now.! too long ago and lots of other shows done after this.!)
This one was quite a long chase and crash:- /vehicle_100445-Rover-2000-TC-P6-1971.html

Hello I'm new to this site, but interested in the Wales & Edwards milk floats. I noticed on the Sweeny Ep 1.08 where you show the 1965 Austin Mini, there is the rear of a 3 whell wales & Edwards float. Any chance anyone could look to post a couple of frames earlier, where it would be easier and more clearly visable to see the float. Thanks.
Great work by the way, wish I knew how to do this stuff. Ronyart
