Thankyou, I enjoyed that, especially as it is a S3SE which is of course the best looking model, but I wish my drivers door closed liked that.
I did find the story difficult to follow and how many costume changes do you need in one car chase.
Some one has done a lot of work putting that together.

as Emma clearly demonstrates the proper way to close the door.....the benefit of those fixed window channels. :lol:

It's interesting how fast the lights go down when she pulls up at 2:05. Are the Elans all like that? (Asking because my +2 is pretty slow in comparison).

All those lovely country roads. Not a pothole in sight!

There's another example at 5:35, which I'd say is about the same speed as my +2...

What a combination, one of the worlds most beautiful women in a classic Elan. I remember watching it when I was 13 and I was smitten then! A very sad loss and an iconic actress. RIP.
