Fords on Film/TV

Following the incredible success of my recent Ford Cortina 50th Anniversary blog (so far two people have ticked the 'cool' feedback box and one of them wasn't me), I thought I'd follow up with an article about classic Fords in classic films. Or a least old Ford's in films or TV:

1969 Mk 2 Ford Cortina 1300 - Michael Caine, Get Carter (1971):

1962 Ford Anglia Deluxe - The Young Ones, Vyvyan (Ade Edmundson)'s car, driven in to the student's front room, 1982. See also Harry Potter - Ron Weasley's flying Anglia):

1976 Mark II Ford Capri 2.0S, Terry McCann (Dennis Waterman), Minder - series 1&2 (see also Doyle's Capri in The Professionals):

1979 Escort Mk 2 RS2000, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998):

Lock Stock also featured a 1984 Mk2 Ford Transit:

Sierra Sapphire Cosworth (exact model varies per series), Spender (Jimmy Nail)

1974 Ford Cortina Mk3, 2000E - Life on Mars Detective Gene Hunt (Glenister):

1976 Mk1 Ford Granada 3.0 Ghia - John Thaw in The Sweeney 1975-80's

...and also a 1973 Ford Consul GT:

I'd better stop now, as this is supposed to be a 'design' blog, and I may be stretching the imagination to suggest that all these cars are design classics, or indeed the shows (Spender and the Sierra for one)
