    I remember Cheshire police having at least one Marina TC saloon. (and HB Viva panda cars) In the world of film and TV, I recall a Morris 1800 Princess in mid/dark blue with a light bar in one of the Sweeney films.
    Truly obscure fact: if you look very carefully at the opening scenes of Bullitt, there is a Morris Minor convertible parked in SF. Or was it Seattle in Highpoint? I must watch them both again to check!

    Why do the Stockport cars have stripes on the bonnet?

Have your say...
