Spotted in South Shields

Del boy's car, South Shields

The star is the car!

I spotted Del Boy’s three wheeled car in South Shields!

I needed to add some motion blur with Photoshop to help disguise it’s location.

Only Fools and Horses was voted Britain’s favourite TV sitcom and it starred David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst as Del Boy and Rodney Trotter, but one of the real stars of the show was the battered old 1972 three wheeled Reliant Regal “babe magnet” (which sold at auction for £44,000).

My best bet is that this model spotted in South Shields is a Robin rather than a Regal, but it certainly turned my head!

Camera details; Pentax K100D, 40mm lens, 1/90 second, f6.7, iso 200

Sorry, no map link today, (the owner might not be amused.)

  3. Brilliant technique. The full meaning is lost on those of us outside the UK but I get the general idea. So, not even a little hint about why the location must be concealed?

  4. Looks like it’s travelling at 70mph, which of course is impossible in one of those. comedaywise, Dad’s Army is the better show.
