Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud documentary - The Car's The Star [BBC 1995]
19 years ago, on television, The Car's The Star.
After the Silver Dawn followed the Silver Cloud in its standard version or
a rare, long wheelbase. The carrossier H. J. Mulliner was just bought by
Rolls-Royce and this specialist builded convertibles on the chassis. For
the special bodies were James Young, Freestone & Webb and Hooper good
addresses.The Silver Cloud was a popular status symbol among movie and pop
'no copyright infringement is intended'
1974 Jensen Interceptor MKIII
The Jensen Interceptor must be the most recognised unfamous classic car of
our time. Everyone has heard of a Jensen Interceptor it seems, despite very
few screen appearances and a limited production run that was
unceremoniously cut short during the fuel crisis of the seventies. Designed
in Italy, powered by 6.3 or 7.2 litre American Chrysler V8 engines and
built by Jensen cars in West Bromwich the unlikely result is an
intoxicating mix of power, size and sophistication normally unheard of this
side of an Aston Martin. We take one of Great Escape Classic Car Hire's two
examples out and give it the full beans to unleash the beast within.

Austin Allegro: The Car's The Star Part Two
Part two of Quentin Willson's look at the Allegro. Apologies for the poor
quality 3/4 of the way through but this is due to a damaged tape. The
silence mid way through is due to an ABBA song on the soundtrack that upset
the copyright owner and it was blocked so I had to edit it out and upload
it again. Quentin only talks about colours and trim in this section.
