Four iconic cars from four iconic British sitcoms. From top to bottom:
• Joey Boswell’s Mark II Jaguar from Bread (with Joey’s mobile phone).
• Del Boy and Rodney’s ‘Three Wheeler’ Reliant Regal Supervan from Only Fools And Horses.
• Mr. Bean’s 1976 Mini 1000 (with door-bolt and padlock for extra security and Mr. Bean’s Teddy Bear).
• Basil Fawlty’s 1972 Austin 1300 Countryman Estate.
I don’t normally include people on my cars designs but that unreliable Austin did need a damn good thrashing!
The greatest lip warmers committed to celluloid:
The Belgian (Poirot)
The Groucho (Marx)
The Stranger (Sam Elliot, The Big Lebowski)
The Tramp (Charlie Chaplin)
The Lando (Calrissian, ‘tache of choice for double crossers and gamblers)
The Magnum (Tom Selleck, The God of ’tache wearers everywhere)
The Bassist (Derek Smalls, Spinal Tap – also worn by Jules Winnfield, Pulp Fiction)
The Butcher (Daniel Day-Lewis, master of the unusual lip-warmer, Gangs Of New York)
The Walker (Also known as The Spiv – Private Walker, Dad’s Army – also worn by early 80s Midge Ure and Mickey Pierce, Only Fools & Horses)
The Gable (Frankly, I don’t give a damn)
The Bandit (Burt Reynolds – Second only to Selleck in ’tache legend)
