Firstly, I should explain the thread title. One of the hits on UK TV at the moment is a police series called "Life on Mars". The premise being a cop from the present is involved in a hit & run and is knocked unconsious. When he wakes up, he finds himself in 1973. It is something of a culture shock - being a modern copper, working with, somewhat less than PC colleagues!

Anyway, his boss drives a Mk III Ford Cortina rather like this:





It is great seeing '60s & '70s cars all over the place, plenty of Ford Escort Mk Is as well:





And Hillman Avengers - although Tigers, like this one, were relatively rare:





All three are from Vanguards. I don't think either of the Fords were available in the US, but, the Avenger was - marketed as the Plymouth Cricket!

Cheers,

Steve

Fun show..I watched the first series of it last year on BBC America.
Nice to see that the UK can export some programmes - were any sub-titles necessary? :)
