Come on, the wrinkly was Dame Margaret Rutherford (1892 ? 1972), a great comedienne. I'm kinda surprised she wasn't driving. The likeness to Bert Lahr is remarkable though.

I was talking to the former owner of the Emma Peel car 3 weeks ago when I was looking at his premises for a new occupier (it was one of the exhibits is his car museum in Keswick, England).

He told me that he sold the entire museum, inc this car, to an American who has since set up the museum in Miami.

There were lot's of other cars in the collection too, the bat mobile being one example and various Bond cars. I never visited the museum when it existed in Keswick but it was interesting to see all of the old sets still intact, sans vehicles unfortunately.

Small world!

Does anyone know what the colour of Emma's S3 was, was it an actual Lotus colour?
