But The Persuaders was in black and white.
Is that a reference to your TV at the time?

"Snobbar som jobbar" Looks pretty colourful to me on IMCDB.

I reckon that was a typo in the design notes. The designer specified a set of ' revolving' wheels and the typist got it wrong on the production notes and the makers followed rhe instructions to a tee!! :-D

Just some wheels from a brand new 21 reg Peugeot 2008 yesterday to give our viewers and posters something to look at this morning.

I've always liked a simple shiny chrome hub cap like our SAAB above. Looked good on the lorries of my youth from Foden. Nice vid here https://www.frenchcarforum.co.uk/forum/ ... 99#p678399

The Colour was Orange Fusion and fairly sparkled in the spring sunshine

When I see all these for sharp angular design on current alloys I picture the London 2012 Olympics logo and wonder if it was in some way responsible for initiating the trend :-D
