    Prompted by todays sad news - Does anyone have any publicity shots or freeze frames from The Cuckoo Waltz showing Lewis Collins with his Lotus? I bought a couple of old videos from Ebay but couldn't find the right episodes

    As a car mad 7 year old he seemed impossibly cool, even though I couldn't work out in my childlike mind, if he can afford a Lotus, why can't he afford a house? I wasn't impressed when he swapped it for a Lancia either.

    Hopefully someone will be able to sort out in my head if he had an Esprit (like the 007 he wanted to be) or a Europa. Even if you have no pics, some better memories would be appreciated

    I thought he drove a de Tomaso Pantera with the number GAV 1N.

    Don't recall that one, though it was long ago. In the later series I think he had a Lanci Beta coupe

    That's a De Tomaso Mangusta, not a Pantera ...although I thought he drove a Lotus as well ...

    It's definitely not a Mangusta as they have a grille at the front and twin headlights.

    The Pantera looks like this:

    Which is what Lewis Collins is driving.
