    “American Pickers” can be found on channels Dave & UK History.
    But if you don't get those then you won't have seen them & know what items are sold in North America

    I never watch American Pickers. Thank you for the information. I will be on the lookout or that program. As for telly service, I only have the basic service. Not that many channels to choose from.

    If you watch “American Pickers”, they are often looking for or at bubble cars.

    One of the best known, must be the one Ian Carmichael drove in I'm All Right Jack, running over Terry-Thomas foot.

    To my knowledge, bubble cars were never sold in North America. I do recall, some years back, Volkswagen came out with a two seat small car. Very economical on petro. But, very small. I think after about two or 3 years they stopped making them. They were sold in Europe.

    Have a look at imcdb.org - it doesn't have every film ever made by any stretch of the imagination, but it does have this one.

    Feeling ill I watched CFF Peril for the Guy yesterday.

    Caspinelli is driving a strange open top three wheeler. It might be a Bond but I haven't tried to identify it yet.

    I recall seeing Bubble cars on the streets as a child in the 60's, I was fascinated by them, remember pink and yellow coloured ones.

    One preserved Bubble car on display at Caister Castle Car Museum, Norfolk..........

    A BMW Isetta. They restored one on Wheeler Dealers.

    Our friend went to his wedding in one recently. It was lovely to see. Both the wedding and the car. It was a friend of his car. I loved the bubble cars and remember them when I was a child in the 60s. There is a bubble car museum somewhere. I think it is in Lincolnshire.

    A mate of mine owned various bubble cars & Reliants over the years. I recall one time his Isetta broke down & seized up at a set of traffic lights & he
    had to get some blokes who were passing by to pick it up & move it into a side street. The steering wheel attached to the front door wouldn't turn!

    There’s a bubble car near the end of Blue Murder at St. Trinian’s leading the coach that brings the little horrors back to the school. But they have just been to Italy & touring Europe so maybe they half inched it

    No close-ups so I can’t tell which make it is

    I just spotted another in the opening scenes of Raising the Wind, parked outside the college.

    I just watched Get Carter.

    Outside Bryan Mosley's house I think there was an orange Bond Bug.
