Government public information film ( free to view on BFI )
about among other things the horrors of losing all your Grateful Dead Albums from your Alfa Romeo and having to have a silent dinner party in leafy London ( yes seriously ! )

A silent dinner party in Scunthorpe would be preferable to having to spend an evening listening to that stuff.

That was one band I could never see the attraction of. I did try, fuelled by trying to keep up with chums who raved about them, but kept failing. Somehow 30-minute jam noodlings kept defeating me - ditto with Yes - so I eventually gave up and returned to the delights of Derek & the Dominoes, ELP and King Crimson.

At least three cars are worth listing: the Lloyd Arabella, the early Fiat 124 and the light blue Vauxhall Velox or Cresta PB.
Even the blue Mini (Morris ?) in the foreground on the right is nice

Hunter Estate, Rapier and Minx are worth listing as maybe the white 1970+ Mini.

Vogue estate (plaque badge in centre of tailgate), poverty Alpine rather than Rapier (painted side pillar instead of vinyl, no over-riders), 1965 C plate S6, Minx S3 (no suffix) with smaller windscreen than S3a-c

Mini van would default as Austin because they were all built at Longbridge

Vauxhall is VX4/90 [FD]. At least one of the VWs is a 412 Variant - imagine being given the keys for one of those as a rental .....
