This is worth a look in it's own right:

check at 1:33 - is that what I think it is?

The white vehicle on the car carrier? Lower level?

I don't think so; both the white car and the yellow have high fronts, they do not appear to slope down and forwards so that you can not see them.

Were you bored this lunch time then, Jon? :D

Clocked the Bristol chaps (good spot :mrgreen: )

...I was thinking of the yellow car on the transporter - an Elan surely?

At what time in the clip does the Bristol appear?

John,

About 1:29, just pulling in front of the Routemaster.

....or could it be Scimitar GTE :?

I don't think it's an elan - if you look at the image at 1.35 it appears to have two side windows and the rear bumper doesn't extend forwards along the side of the car towards the wheel arch as it does on a +2. Question is, what is it...?
