Back to the 80s

Post by LN Strike Eagle »

Fun to see these cars racing around at North Weald last weekend - they're from the same company that does bus driving experiences on the market side of the airfield, and seems they've done a few of these TV car weekends in the past, although I've never seen them before.

Always loved Knight Rider, although sadly the owners said the light at the front is currently broken. :sad: The DeLorean is a stock example, not a Back to the Future replica.

Maybe they could have sent this facsimile up from Kent! to put KITT out of its misery.........as everybody who lived on the 80's knows that Knight Rider was pants and Airwolf was brill. Good post.

Do you climb vertically to 80,000 feet with afterburners? :shock:

Much rather have the ability to fire "nuclear tipped shrike missiles" than have a car that can talk :grin:

Love the pics though :smile:

Ahhhh those were the days :-)

Loved Streethawk, only went on for one season though I think ?

For a decent 80s car, nothing beats the Cody Coyote from Hardcastle & McCormick :rock:

Apologies, thread drift.................
