Thanks for that. Always wanted to get one for mine as the airflow is abysmal but they didn't seem to be available in this country.

Currently on Channel 5 is "Edge of Tomorrow", with a barn find of a Citron CX hatchback (variant unknown).

Despite all the Tom Cruise hatred I liked that film. Don't recall any cars though. Emily Blunt was good though.

I do recall I enjoyed it but over a year and I couldn't tell you what happened.
Saves me money as I can re-watch a DVD after a year or so and it is like a brand new one :)
Same with books. Get to the last page and realise I know how it ends.

Currently on the Sony channel is a brilliant film "To Sir, With Love". In the scene where they are getting on the bus (to go to the Museum) there was a red Citroen Traction.

Channel 5 are showing "Battle of Britain" at the moment. Less than 10 minutes into the film a Citroen Traction pulls up in a hurry, and the driver gets out and lets the squadron know that the Germans are very close (necessitating an immediate evacuation of the air field).

Saw this the other day, not a film but a video. I did take a screen shot but the car is so fast it blurs so watch the video instead. The bit you want is about 5 seconds in just after Dale is in the aisle but some may stick with it. 8-)
