if anyone`s interested there`s quite a good article this month about the vehicles (inc. BL) used in `the Professionals`
(Also another car I`d love - the Isetta!!)

Hi,

I have a weird soft spot for the Isetta. A teacher at my school used to have one as well as a Bond Bug and a Messerschmitt KR200, all in near mint condition. Happy days!
All the best,
Andrew.

Hi,
Back on topic, thanks for the info. That sounds like an interesting article, I will have to check it out in the library. (I mean the newsagents really, but I treat it like a library!)
All the best,
Andrew.

Thanks for the info Steve, I like that magazine a lot but don't always buy it. I will for sure though now.

Interestingly, the latest CCI magazine has a large feature on Lewis Collins.
