In Kill Bill Vol 1, when Uma Therman is escaping from the hospital the first car she passes in the underground car park is a 9-5.

Outside the house of Tessa Jowell (one of Phoney Tony's cronies) - her husband has ALLEDGEDLY taken a bribe from Sr Berlusconi (another pal of Toni)- so it's major news on the BBC, there is a black 9-3 hatch, just behind the reporter...

I inadvertently caught the beginning of 'Stenders the other day !). Was that a 9-5 hearse Johnny got carted off in?



I originally thought it was Corrie, but Mrs TB says I'm wrong.

Very good spot. The untrained eye would have missed that one.

Wow, you are an uber-anorak. I missed that it was not an Opel.

OK, more on this. The registration on the vehicle was BJ53VFN ....which means that the BBC must have got their mitts on the facelift 9-5 some 2-3 years before it was launched! ....or it was a fake numberplate which had completely the wrong year identifier on the vehicle.

Reporter on GMTV yesterday was showing items recommended to be carried in your car during bad weather. He had them next to his car, a 9-3 Sports Wagon. He must have been expecting very bad weather :smile:

Er, not quite,

The Data base the RAC use tell us that it is a
Manufacturer VAUXHALL
Model ASTRAVAN ENVOY CDTI
Body type CAR DERIVED VAN
Colour SILVER
Fuel type HEAVY OIL
Date manufactured 02 December 2003
Number of previous owners 1

And this is confirmed by the vehicle licencing agency..
The vehicle details for BJ53 VFN are:

Date of Liability 01 10 2007
Date of First Registration 02 12 2003
Year of Manufacture 2003
Cylinder Capacity (cc) 1686CC
CO2 Emissions 0g/Km
Fuel Type Heavy Oil
Export Marker Not Applicable
Vehicle Status Licence Not Due
Vehicle Colour SILVER
Vehicle Type Approval N1


Probably one of those 'buck' cars GM use to try components without giving the press a scoop. Now we know why Diesel Astra vans are the fastest thing on four wheels!

I hope the production company are the ones that own it!

I knew that someone would know where to look up this information. Thanks, Trollbooster

It's not difficult, but not as straight forward as you might expect.

The DVLA will only tell you details if you know what make it is as well as the registration number.

The RAC will tell you the make from the registration number here

Armed with the make and the registration number, you can then go to the Vehicle licensing web site and get the further information

Was watching a programme on the History of Saabs on Discovery Real Time Extra tonight at 11pm.

It only went up to the 9000, but it was great. Ed Abbott was interviewed along with a few other well known afficionados.

I'm sure it'll be repeated a thousand time on DRT Xtra throughout the week if anyone wants to catch a glimpse of some real beauties.

I look out of my window every morning for that pleasure and I'm sure a few of you also do too.

Episode one of ITV's new sci-fi series 'Primevil' opened with a woman being chased through a supermarket car park by a dinosaur. When she hides between two cars another car is dropped on her by the dinosaur - cue upside down SAAB 900i dropping into shot!

The new comedy film 'Hot Fuzz' features a character (played by David Threlfall) driving a bright yellow C900 convertible which later on is found smashed up with the driver decapitated.

And the new series of 'Life On Mars' not only features the 96 in the credits as before but the same car appears in the background of both episode 1 and 2.

BBC's Hustle series 3. Episode 4 has a black 9000 limo. Unfortunately they crash it into a parked van but aside from the bonnet buckle the Saab looks undamaged.
