Default The Sound of Noise

A Swedish art movie about guerrilla musicians. Of course they're going to travel around the city in a 240 estate.
check out Music for One Apartment and Six Drummers for example:

Smile "You Bet" with Bruce Forsyth 1990s

Just discovered that a car just like my white 240 Estate appears in the opening titles to Bruce Forsyth's You Bet on ITV:

Just saw "Tremors II" last night - worse than the first but did have a 240 in it.

Jonah Hill drives a beautiful blue 245 in one of the hallucination sequences in the excellent (and thoroughly batty) Netflix drama 'Maniac' from 2018.

Watched a couple of films with the kids over Easter holidays, both with 245s heavily featured! Both blue, one tatty with a replacement red NSR door in The Book Of Henry, and a mint example in the film Hop.

Recently sold my 'F' reg, red 240DL estate to a film company, for a six part drama which is still being filmed, I will post further details when it is due to be shown on TV.

Hi..indeed,I binge watched this series and was most relieved that they did not smash it up in the first programme..The engine was not a stock one .Would be curious to know what it was?..Regards,hj.
