Re: American Police Capri

Also not sure that jelly on the roof would survive a high-speed pursuit. Hehe, you made me take a second look, very funny Martin! As regards to your why/small engine comment, have you ever seen Heartbeat, just look at some of the Police cars we used to have, surprised they could catch a crimial who...

Presumably that's a Japanese tinplate toy?
Not sure, good guess though, it could well be.

American Police Capri

This pic is from a Facebook page called Ford Capri Collecting, Models, Toys & Memorabilia. Didn't realise that the Capri was a police car in America? Or was it a toy only perhaps. (Note it's left hand drive too)

Brilliant, do you know her name Peter? I've seen a few interviews with various Hill's Angels, and all of them have nothing but good things to say about Benny and the show.

Interesting that, it could be that it shrank a tiny amount in size due to the cold. You could have hit upon something here, next time I do a similar job I might put the bush in the fridge first.

Re: Who Remembers?

It has already been on GMB that complaints have been raised over re-showing it. I saw this post on Twitter, which sums it up very nicely I think - Mark Lockwood @MarkLock101 26 Nov I can’t get past the argument that every TV has an off button, if you don’t want to watch something, switch it off/over...

Have To Sell?

I'm posting this with a heavy heart....😥 As much as I love My Capri and all things Ford and everything that comes with it, sadly, It's taking up too much of my time. I am struggling to keep up with the everyday basics of working, cleaning, parenting and maintaining my home. Something has to give. As...

Re: Who Remembers?

I never thought I'd see the day but That's TV, Channel 7 (regional) and Channel 91 (National) are re-showing the Benny Hill Show. Incredibly funny, far more so than I remember it to be. Some of the sketches (which he wrote) are very clever, never realised he was such a genius. https://c4f6q9z9.stack...

Yes Paul, we had one in the lounge. The smell of burning dust if it hadn't been used for a while :) They threw out quite a bit of heat, but you had to wonder how fast the meter was spinning :shock: Ahh that smell, would love to have it just one more time. You're right Andy, they did give out some p...

Who can remember this type of fire/heater, which was very common back in the day, must have cost a fortune to run, but in these days of everything-must-be-electric perhaps they'll make a comeback! https://www.for-sale.co.uk/sh-img/124198375_10165958461900347_5039464432219752346_o_electric%2Bbar%2Bfi...

It's only gone through the roof if it actually sells at that though, the seller could put a million Pounds if he so wished, doesn't mean it will sell or that it's worth it.
