We've identified this car using the details you provided
TR7 1977
Registration number: WGJ 22R
Body type: Sports
Colour: Yellow
Date of first registration: July 1977

A yellow TR7 featured throughout S1 and is presumably the same car - online quotes:
"I also wrote in the script that Lance drives a yellow Triumph TR7. I assumed that I would have to compromise on this one. But our designer found a 1977 yellow TR7 in pristine condition . . . and it was cheaper to buy it than hire it for the duration of the shoot. This left the problem of what would happen to it after we finished. I bought it and told my wife that I had to safeguard it in case we were commissioned for a second series. So now I have a TR7 in a colour that could only be described as ‘yellow’."

Postscript in ep 2.02, there's a line in the script that it used to be Mimosa yellow (a pale pastel shade) before "Lance" had it resprayed to this stronger Inca yellow. Doesn't make any difference for us as it's always Inca onscreen, but noted for the record in case it's true for the car.

Did you work on the programme? Do you still have the car as it is a classic of its type?

:lol: No - not me. I was quoting from an online post by Mackenzie Crook - the series writer - Link to "www.dailymail.co.uk" .
