Eclat / elite on 'Minder'

Recommended Posts

We all know the yellow esprit that appeared on minder, but in the last five minutes of the episode tonight (all i caught) was the front of a yellow elite or eclat. It was the episode 'You Lose Some, You Win Some' shown on ITV4 at 8pm today.

Maybe you guys know about this, just thought i'd mention it, am sure you can find it on youtube or something if you wanted to see if it featured throughout.

:cheers:

The Minder episode with the gold S2 (unworthy.gif ) was called "All about scorin' innit" and had that Karl Howman bloke out of Brush Strokes playing totally against type as a womanising footballer. TBH it only appears on screen for seconds so hardly worth buying the box set if you know what I mean. I have the video clips at home if you want them, or they may be on Youtube by now.

The interesting thing about that episode was it was directed by future Bond director Martin Campbell; I can't help thinking he was influenced by a certain other Esprit film appearance and was just getting some practice in for hi future career!

Somehow i knew Mark would have known all about it!

:(

Still worth giving a shout though as they are so rare to see.

Mark, i bet you have footage of the Howards way car too?

Oh dear, am I Mr Predictable?

I've stuck them on Youtube, TBH I can't claim the credit, they were ripped by Adrian Mugridge for me yonks ago. The only thing is the main clip is a bit Keystone Cops, silent and fast, I don't know if anyone can slow it down a bit?

The car was owned by a member on here, his handle was something like Pip (Phillip) and is now yellow

Never seen the Howards Way Esprit, nothing would have tempted me to watch that. However I used to love the opening credits of The Late Late Breakfast Show where Noel Edmonds played out his Bond fantasies with a red Turbo and a Glastron-esque speedboat. I can't find the original, better, opening credits only the later version showing the stunts which the programme became infamous for.

If the link doesn't work try this and look halfway down;

TV Ark

If that doesn't work you can bathe in the nostalgia of Seaside Special, or the inappropriate boobies at the start of Holiday '74!

It was an Excel and i think it belonged to 'Ken Masters' who was a kind of baddie businesman.

Was sunday TV in our house, i think i saw all of them...
