What Would Bodie And Doyle Drive Today?

Recommended Posts

Practical Classics this month has a piece on their cars, and they do look cool in the ITV4 reruns.

Main cars were Capri 3.0, Escort RS2000, TR7.

So what would they be driving today?

It has to be discreet for undercover work, so no stripes, and can't be expensive as they were on normal salaries. It needs to be fast.

Lexus GS 430! The word of Pin is truth! :huh:

Don't know about Bodie and Doyle, but I find the following test useful when deciding about cars.

Imagine Jack Regan (John Thaw) of The Sweeney saying to his sergeant (Dennis Waterman) the standard weekly line, "Get the motor, George".

If you can't picture George turning up in car X then X is not a proper car. :D

A Prius for Doyle, or maybe a bicycle.

Edit: yes, I know they're not fast but the planet comes first

I as thinking like an "orse an cart", like Steptoe! Surely the Amish can't disagree with that? :blink:

Yeah, I couldn't think of any obvious ones either. The fast Fords are really lairy with stripes and orange colours.

Nissan 370z was all I could come up with as a possible.

I'd like to see them in a Ford Ka.

YES! Always a Ford, Mr Sherwick! I think I detected a bit of "product placement" there! :blink:

The Amish don't disagree with anything when they're out among the English...

A Subaru Impreza.

Or one of those Nissan Sunny Pulsar Gti-R things that I hideously embarrassed in my Corrado VR6 once on the A414.

Yes, I still remember you. I only let you get past when we got to 120mph. Engine screaming, was it?

The joy of youth :)

All this is a load of rubbish.

Doyle would drive a desk. 3 joysticks to operate CCTV cameras and a microphone to operate loudspeakers. He'd be a cross dresser and visit punishment dungeons on his time off. He would destroy criminal gangs with barbed posts about them on twitter.

Bodie would be there to handle the paperwork. This 40 stone monster would exist solely on a diet of McDonalds and expresso coffee. His job would consist of endless verbal dust ups, bringing the heavy mob to data protection, employment policy and prisoners rights.

Him indoors says a Focus ST.

Are you allowed to drive it?

Didn't those 3 litre Ford Granadas, and the like, used to end up on council estates where they could afford the fuel consumption when they only heaved them off the drive to the supermarket once a fortnight. Don't know what they favour now.

Is this for Holland, where crims use stolen "getaway bicycles"? :blink:

It was my imaginary uncle's. He was pining for the Bf109 he flew in the war, so this is the nearest thing he could get to a Messerchmitt.

(He was a fighter ace. Decorated by Goering himself. Quite an achievement, as he was born in Norwich and had never set foot in Germany until he joined the Luftwaffe in 1942.)

What a good job that my imaginary uncle was British! He married my imaginary aunt from Leipzig, who is still going and still doesn't like the French! Who does? :(
