No problem and always happy to reply.

I sold the car to a friend in Jersey when I emigrated to Australia in the 1980's.

He owned the Lucas agency for the Channel Islands and the production team spotted the car when sourcing parts at his dealership for the main car which had broken down.

They then added it to the props.

Three cars were used in the series.

I moved back to the UK and Norfolk in the 90's and he wanted to dispose of the car which was a pig to drive. I loaned it to a friend who was an Air UK captain and he flew the aircraft in the picture which was taken in 1997 at Norwich.

J1656 is now UK registered with a Swansea number.

The aircraft is now in the museum at Norwich.

At least we have a bit more discussion on a small airport thread.
