Pictures are a bit grainy, especially the night time scenes, but that is the way they were broadcast, not my conversion. I don't know why the broadcast was so poor, it was almost as though the TV station downloaded a really bad copy and played it.

This scene involving the chase with the Sigma Turbo passes the location of the Take Away store used in Midnite Spares. It is just down the road from where I work. /vehicle_78589-Chrysler-Valiant-Charger-VJ-1973.html
