It makes you wonder who this set is aimed at? I had a girl friend who was well into the series maybe she`ll buy a set? I lost interest in the series when they started cuddling each other! Give me the Sweeney, a Cortina and a Jag any day or The Professionals, Capri and a proper Jag
Why did they bother retaining the Torino? Surely if Mr Glaser and Mr Soul are too geriatric to party again someone could have contacted Audi and gotten them to pay to supply a red TT with a flash on it?

The set's probably aimed at me Johnny
I used to watch Starsky & Hutch as a kid and that Gran Torino! SWEET. Hopefully the scaley version will do it justice. A black 'vette works for me too.
Hmm...the Sweeney. Yes a Mk.1 Granada would look good - if Carrera did it they could have a bumper sticker on it saying "At least this Granny doesn't stink of p155!"
I don't know why Scaley didn't do a CI5 race set - they've had the 3.0 S Capris around for ages. All they had to do was spray one bronze and the other silver, registrations VHK 11W and 12W, oh and include some small cardboard boxes to put on the track
Oh well, at least I can play with my 1:1 professionals race set, even though she's a 2.8 in blue and silver
I`ll be buying the car too if it`s nice enough. Well I did buy David Soul`s single for that old girl friend (trying to get into her drawers). She looked like the blonde girl from ABBA. So as you can see I have no shame and no morals
Why don't you just take the old girlfriend along to see Mr Soul in person, he lives about 500 yards away from my brother now, in London. Still may not get you into her drawers, but at least you'll see the car has probably stood the test of time better than the actors (allegedly, as they say on HIGNFY)
