Nice Set of Wheels

    As its a bit on the slow side, thought I'd add this as a 'stocking filler' till something better turns up...!!!

    John Thaw (Inspector Morse) had his Jaguar Mk2

    Lewis Collins (Bodie - The Professionals) had his Ford Capri

    Paul Michael Glassier (Starsky & Hutch) had his Gran Torino

    and Philip Glenister (Life on Mars) had his Ford Cortina

    If you had just landed the lead in a new prime time detective story…What would be your ‘Dream Icon Car'? and why?

    I always rather liked the nifty set of wheels that Patrick McGoohan drove as The Prisoner in that show's title sequence. So one of those, please - or, failing that, a customised hansom cab.

    Splat...Nice wheels indeed, love the idea of the Morgan -style

    but the TVR Chimera - Inspirational, also if the 'perps' were to attempt to 'lift' your wheels...they would have a problem just getting into the car, and if they managed that, just watch them try and start it...hehe, SWAT would be all over them before they were in 1st gear.

    Love the idea of a bike...but you would need a 'sidecar' for your 'sidekick'...hehe

    Mark - Nice, the Vantage, true quality, but I must agree with Splat...unless your a Lord Peter Wimsey type...its a bit OTT, but still very nice. (quiz question - who was it drove a Bentley Continental in a 60's detective series?)

    I have the urge for a Chrysler 300C in black with the big low profile tyres - a dark and moody car for a dark and moody Thief-Catcher...Grrreeeaaattt

    Was there ever any women detectives with fancy cars? or am I typical - am I bothered as long as it's reliable?

    Oh Allan...my dream car, the Jensen Interceptor. My dad had one for a short time in the 70's...now day's the only people able to run one would be the bank robber's...lol

    The way my family spend my money at the moment... I might just be able to stretch to a panda...hehe

    Eliza,

    There were M'Dear...What about Emma Peel (Diana Rigg) and her Lotus Elan in The Avengers.

    and not forgetting Purdey (Joanna Lumley) in her Triumph TR7 in the New Avengers

    Splat - Nah, been done to death with 'Hetty Wainthropp Investigates' played by that great lady Patricia Routledge - while Hetty gads about the countryside with young Geoffrey in search of resolution and justice.

    I'll tell you what I dont thinks been done - A dirty great big Trike...and as you dont need a helmet, your face is always in shot...Bonus...hehe

    Off now...taking the daughter to see Ice Age III, I dont know who's looking forward to it more...me or her...hehe

    TTFN

    i own my perfect car ... a 1972 1302s vw beetle. i have so much fun driving him, and fixing him!!!

    if i was a detective though, i'd go for an 1960s vw notch back. a cracking little gem of a car, so much class its silly.

    The bike's a nice touch, but if it has to be a car - batmobile.

    If we're allowed a wider definition of vehicle . . . I'd be a detective with multiple severe allergies, who goes around in a Zorb ball. Imagine the jeopardy . . .

    I always thought a hamsetr was what Tom Sellech had balanced upon his upper lip in the first place.

    I can't drive for real, but I would go for a touch of 'Untouchables' era class with a 1931 Dusenberg, complete with machine gun proofed windows, for what it's worth...

    Hello All,

    Allan - Your right she dragged me, but it was a great film...better than the previous two to be honest, but have you seen the prices of the popcorn and sweets - cost more than the tickets!!!

    Allan, yes your smack on with the early Morgans, it would be like riding a Trike backwards.

    Shelly - VW Beetle, great car, love the idea...you could even have a subplot (like in NCIS on FX Channel, where Gibbs is trying to build a boat in his cellar) you could be converting your VW into a kit car replica of a Lamborghini Murcielago in between the murders.

    E - A Zorb Ball...A script writers dream, can you just imagine the story lines...and what a acting challenge for the lead, when he shouts "Your nicked, mate!!" you would have to have a small flap inserted in the ball so 'our man' can handcuff the 'Bad lad'...hehe

    Jonathan - Tom Selleck, I understand, had a new hamster each episode as they dont live long, hence, his upper lip aways looked slightly different (Disclaimer: - No hamsters were hurt in the making of this thread)

    Lee - A Dusenberg, now that works for me...When you get that part, can I be your police driver...I'd fancy a 'clutch' in that..hehe

    Steve

    PS...Q. Where do all policemen live?

    A. Letsbe Avenue

    PPS...Sorry!!!
