Not "Indestructible" then? :blink:

If anyone has the original Spectrum Pursuit Vehicle (Corgi), they are worth a few bob! ^_^

Only if yo uwere a sad git who kept it in its original box!

I always find it odd that these 'mint' toys are so valuable.

Surely the only reason they are mint and in a box is becausethey were sh*t toys.

I am that sad! I sold a "Goldfinger Aston Martin" in original box a couple of years back! I've had it since primary school! :blink: Nearly a hundred quid!!

Anything can happen in the next half hour. ;)

I especially liked the way Marina didn't nag! :blink: But that is for the "other" thread! :ph34r:

My uncle was easily conned! He also bought a Hillman Imp that the dealer told him was 'Stingray'!

It's hardly fish-shaped, is it? My imaginary uncle was sold a Corvette Stingray, on the grounds that is was economical, and safe round corners! :blink: He only went out for a battery for his Morris Oxford! I think this runs in the family! I went shopping for guitar strings once, and came back with a piano!

Some of these voice actors can be quite versatile. Dick Dastardly/Tigger invented and built the worlds first implantable artificial heart.

:o Crivvens! It's the truth!

My Goodness! The SPV crash has already happened! :blink:

For some reason I thought these were popular, and because they all got broken, very few good ones left!

I guess even "voiceovers" need hobbies!

I heard she was into watersports too.

Stingray, had a pretty good sense of humour with jokes that were too good for children, but I don't think they pulled that one! <_<

Stingray, Thunderbird, Marina, (Mike) Mercury...

Odd that Anderson named his series after good cars, and his characters after crap cars.

I'm always amused at cars that sound like pr0n mags! Ford did both an Escort and a Fiesta, and there was the Mini Mayfair!

Yes, my Uncle drove all of those. But his favourite was the Ford Leather and Bondage Monthly.

Re the SPV, is this the one where the driver faced rearwards and steered via TV screens with forward facing cameras?

Challenge anyone to do that without chucking up!

I imagine the vehicle would be filled with multi coloured "Spectrum" vomit worse than a Glasgow minicab on a Sunday morning!
