Go to this thread here to read of good news about saving Ed's car for the future. There are pictures of a mould being made to create a replica.

Now if this car had been an amphib (sic) of some sort, not sure whether the neighborhood sharks would've fled in abject panic or instead charged on it and eaten it!



(I do like the color, though...)

Cool. Great to see the boat there. I was also drooling over all those tin robots.

Speaking of futuristic-looking cars,


The Nova GT kit car used to be quite common in the early 90's at kit car shows, along with the gull-winged version, the Eagle SS. Both of them wouldn't have looked out of place on the UFO backlot.

The trouble was, although they just dropped onto a VW chassis, the bodies were a bit indifferently produced, and you would often see versions with a poor gelcoat or even mould-slump. I think the Eagle was redeveloped to run on Ford parts. The Nova also suffered due to having a bit of a questionable safety record : You were supposed to fit hydraulics which could raise the roof (literally) if the car had rolled over. That and the VW base made it a bit of an unattractive proposition, especially after the MOT started looking more searchingly at self-built cars.

When UFO was shown on TV in my country, the Adams Probe 16 from Corgi was one of my favorite cars to play with. It matched the UFO series style very well too. So I recently bought back a fine example of it. In this video it said that one remaining Adams Probe 16 resides in Switzerland…hmm, need to have a look around…



Still to complete a UFO model car collection one would of course need a black Rolls Royce Phantom VI, a red Chevy Stingray, a silver Jensen FF and a red VW Porsche…

Oh, and by the way, Sean, how is it going?

I know that the Probe 2001 used in "A Clockwork Orange" still exists, and I remember seeing it at a motor show in the mid 90s. I was rather surprised to find out that it was powered by the engine from a Hillman Imp. This is possibly the reason a lot have gone to the scrappers, because the Imp engine was derived from the old Coventry Climax engines, which were one of the very first engines to use alloy blocks. Unfortunately they had a habit of becoming porous in their old age.

Yep, you are right! Thanks! Wasn't watching the series for some time, so these two got lost in the depths of my brain...

Default 1970 Merc concept car. Could pass for UFO series

Here is a couple of pictures I found of a 1970 Mercedes concept car. It could easily pass for a Doppleganger/UFO series regular. What do others think.
