I'd prefer them to be on the inside... will see what I can find out about getting some made up hereAedo, you mean like these? I had them made up locally, and you are correct, they are a good chuckle. More people understand it than I expected. And I never lock my car any more because -- it's burglar protected!
I'm sure I can get the shop to make another pair for you. Three things -- the font isn't exactly correct, the decal goes on the outside of the glass, and they aren't as cheap as I thought they'd be. They charged me $34 for the pair.
Brilliant!! rotflIn addition to the burglar decal, the front license plate says 007, and I have a plastic 12" trout that I dangle out the window on occasion
One of the Esprit's that was sent to Pinewood studios for the Bond people to evaluate the copper fire colour was MPW71V , that car was not actually used in the filming of FYEO, it was originally the 3rd Essex Esprit development car and was also the first Esprit to be fitted with the experimental Lotus 908 V8 at the factory.I seem to remember they wanted the car painted Copper Fire metallic because they were filming in the mountains and the white would not have shown up well in the snow scenes
This all appears correct except for the specified length. A cubit is technically the length from the tip of the thumb to the first knuckle. the correct answer is that the car appears to be 10 cubits long when viewed from a significant distance away.NCL 485V is 1980 registered
OPW 654W and OPW 678W are 1981 registered
So the IMCDB are correct on that.
Engine type - Internal Combustion
Power (bhp) - Very Massive compared to an Isetta Scooter
Torque: ft/lbs - Enough to ruin the transmission
Weight - Same as 1,000 Helium filled balloons
Length - 10 cubits
Width - Wide, but not as wide as its long
Top speed - Warp factor 9.9
Transmission - Cheap French supplied Unit
0-60 time - Depends If the engine is running or not.
Production (how many were built) - Many, but not so many to become commonplace, so quite few really.
Unfortunately, that is going to be tough to call it 'definitive'.Can someone write up a definitive history of the Bond cars?
"The cubit is an ancient unit based on the forearm length from the middle finger tip to the elbow bottom."This all appears correct except for the specified length. A cubit is technically the length from the tip of the thumb to the first knuckle. the correct answer is that the car appears to be 10 cubits long when viewed from a significant distance away.
No, just Esprit. I guess what I was attempting to say was can someone write what each car did before filming and what became of them.Unfortunately, that is going to be tough to call it 'definitive'.
If you mean Bond cars as "..in addition to Esprit..." that's even harder.
ArtB's post pretty much covers "For Your Eyes Only" (FYEO):Can someone write up a definitive history of the Bond cars?
Try this site - plenty of information albeit in different tabs - check 'Information' and models at that point.So what year are they? IMCDb claims 1980 and 1981. Surely that must be an error if these two rolled down the line sequentially?
I would also like the following specifications if anyone has them:
Production (how many were built)
I actually just ordered those from this buyer last weekend, will tell you how they look when they arrive in a few days. Figured it was worth a shot for $11.
