Aren't they just!
I know it's not the point of the adverts, but The Blunders always get away with their bad driving and cause the disruption to other people going about their normal lives. :roll:

Great find, by the way. I don't remember these adverts being on the telly so it's the first time I've seen them.

I remember the old "This is the age of the train" with Saville.
Saville used to have an RS3100, you know.

Yep it's true, I can't remember where I read it. In an old CCI magazine perhaps?

Never trust a man with an Austin 1100 ;) Can’t believe they let those actors smash the windscreen. No health & safety in the 70s .. :spank:
