As an eighties TV series it has to have an ace theme tune: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5XWmU-lv3Q

I liked this series - shallow plots, predictable humour, but characters you could identify with. And a few Brummie accents and locations.

Supposed to be brief shots of Aston DB6 (HAA 83D, Dubonnet Rosso) in 2 episodes:
Quote - In 1990 I was asked by Central TV to take the DB6 for a scene in Boon with Michael Elphick in series 5. It starred Susannah York and Lionel Jeffries and came out on November 11th 1990. I was given a wife for the day - an exceedingly glamorous model called Hayley. She was all right until she opened her mouth "Wos 'is old crock 'en" and comment on my cigar "your not finkin of smokin' dat effin thing in 'ere wif my contact lenses" Same car in series 6 'The Lie of the Land' starring Frank Windsor and I did feel more like I was in the movies as they gave me a walkie-talkie. I had to drive up to the big house on the day of the shooting party. Five times in all people stepping out in the way, dogs running around etc, but it was "OK Aston Martin are you ready" "Yep" "then scene 6 take 2 and action!" At least five seconds in "Daddy's Girl" and more like ten in "Lie of the Land". Blink and you miss it and it took a whole day in each case! - from http://www.amoc.org/forum/index.php?action=printpage;topic=3558.0 towards the end.

The fire apparatus in Sandie's strip of five photos appears to be a c1934 Albion Type 46 fire apparatus manufactured in Glascow Scotland. Ironically the same name that they used for it in the episode. They were primarely a truck and bus company. The body work is of the open Braidwood type as made by Merryweather who used Albion Chassis exclusively for a time. (Information provided to me by the Albion Motor Club of Glascow.)

To Sandie: would you have any other screen grabs of the engine, such as the front and even perhaps showing the registration plate (or even partial)?

6: absolutely worth to list! :o There's not only a Skoda 120 L on it (rapid130 will know more)! Also a Ford Escort Van, an Austin Allegro plus a MG Maestro Estate!
9: also worth to list, because the Datsun is a JDM-car, to identfy by the mirrors on the fender and the size of the plate - very rare in the 80ies in the UK, or? :think:

3 is a Lonsdale as /vehicle_64429-Lonsdale-YD41-1983.html - worth a page.
4 is 75+ Cherry F10 - probably worth a page.
6 Agree Maestro Estate, but MG was saloon body only.
9 Not sure the Datsun is JDM-spec - wing mirrors look ordinary UK and sometimes they just chose funny plate formats.

Do you know the British crime series/mini series about the detective, who drove a Mini. In one episode he crashed it (rollover) and since next ep. he had a new one with interesting badge in the middle of the grille. It is all what I remember. It was in TV in the early 1990s and filmed had to be also somwhere at the turn of the 80s and 90s. Seems your favourite period ;) , but like for now it is not listed yet I think.

^ I was going to give it a page, but wondered if there was enough visible for that.

^^It seems to vaguely ring a bell, but I'm not sure. Definitely don't have a name. It is indeed my era and I have many things of that type to add, some of which I haven't watched before so it may be in there somewhere. Maybe someone else will have an idea what it was called?

@weasel - Mr Bean :p ?? Rings a very faint bell with me, but too quietly ...
@sandie - am about to launch XYY Man - I hope that's not on your list. Just got the DVD - it's interesting among other things for launching Don Henderson's Bulman character. After that I may do Floodtide (by Roger Marshall who wrote /movie.php?id=290990). Longer term ideas might be A Very Peculiar Practice (and spin-off A Very Polish Practice) and maybe even Bulman . Do we overlap?

Nope, was planning on adding Bulman and XYY Man but never bought them. I still have to finish Strangers (I started the last series some time ago). My impression was that Bulman was difficult to find on DVD.

That's a relief. Bulman depends on me finding DVDs cheaply, so flexible if you get there first - if either of us finds them, can we agree to PM the other? Ditto AVPP, but it is easily available and I have the first series somewhere.

Ah yes! It must be this!

The Mini was black or very dark at least. :P Well, will wait, maybe some day it will appear here thanks to one of you. There was also a mini detective series of that era, where main character drove a Lotus 7 or its replica, but this one I found boring as kid.

One possibility is Target, starring Patrick Mower as Detective Hackett. ITV has the success of The Sweeney, so BBC did Target - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075593/?ref_=fn_tt_tt_6 - in reply, and it was rubbish - bad acting, Mower was irritating, no originality. Can't remember if he drove a Mini. Very difficult to get hold of now - no official versions out there, but its obscurity is deserved. A couple of youtube clips around eg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p9nn_0bCcxE .

Well hard to be sure today, but it is very in the 1970s style, when that mentioned one looked more recent (~20 years ago). IMO it was mid-80s as oldest.
I remember, what made for me interesting the guy's new Mini, was a notable badge in the center of the grille, not too big, but somehow different (compared it back then with Minis in the car catalogue :D - and seems there wasn't anything like that in the '90-'92 already). Also the car was in some late 70s, but more 80s version with more plastics (or at least metal pieces were painted black). This is how I remeber it, but I was back then 7/8 so could mix something. The car is the main reason, why I'm curious what it was.

For 1981, the mini had a badge in the middle of the grille, to align with the launch of the miniMetro, with its badge in the middle of the grille. It changed to the lower side of the grille from around 1983 onwards.
