Very funny :D They were brilliant at those sketches. Yes Ronnie Barker was a class act, they both were. Been watching Porridge recently, tremendous.

Ian La Frenais and Dick Clement wrote some classics......Porridge, Going Straight and Auf Wiedersehen Pet especially.

Whatever happened to these rain hats, used to be very commonplace. But now they seem to have completely disappeared!

I've recently been watching that as it's been shown on one of the Freeview channels (the second version, i.e Whatever Happened To....). It's one of those shows which I have missed really. Very good, like it a lot :)

I remember 1976 well even though I was only 14 then. Hosepipe bans (expect we'll get one in 2017 if this keeps up any longer), strikes galore and 3 day week with Red Robbo and co running rampant, Bjorn Borg won Wimbledon and the Windies thrashed us at cricket with their legendary team. Mt sister was mad about the Bay City Rollers and I letched after Abba's Agnetha.

My dad got his first of the then brand new space age Rover 3500 SD1 and I remember him picking me up from school in it and all my pals making :wank: signs at me!

Life seemed so much simpler and more pleasant then.

Abba were a good group, I know what you mean about Agnetha, and soon to follow Debbie Harry :D

The SD1 must have seemed really strange back then, as did the Sierra in 1982......I still get the :wank: sign now :lol:

Simpler times as a child/ teenager for certain.....Too much technology nowadays, and kids are more moody for sure.

Your family had a good taste in cars :D Are we there yet? :lol:

Always got car sick when I was young, probably the comfortable vinyl seats in the 70's :sarcasmalert:

and also when you was a sleep in the back and the car stoped fast you would end up on the rear floor . As them seats you could slip of so fast .
Coming from a ford family made me a ford nut and a Capri fan .

Dad never owned a Ford, so I don't know where I got my liking for them :headscratch:

Early 70's, the building labourer doing our loft conversion had a Maroon Mk1 Cortina and I was fascinated by it. He would let me sit in the driving seat :D I was 18 at the time :lol: :lol: :lol: Actually about 6 IIRC.

Some good memories of that decade :)

Mine was never a Ford fan either. Got my :ford: bug from older cousins , one had an orange mk 1 Escort Mexico (still want one), the other had a mk1 1600 XL Capri, this was in the late '70's . Although they both reckoned at the time that the Escort was the better car, it was a Capri I wanted & did end up owning a 1600 XL for a while. Still fancy a mk1 Escort & would love a mk3 Cortina too. Ah, it's nice to dream .. 8-)
