- compare /vehicle_524111-Ford-Prefect-E493A-1949.html (and probably many other sightings)

Can be seen here and here (in a neat adaptation where someone has carefully filmed the same trip today and shows then-and-now in a parallel splitscreen; however it has playback problems from midway). Both are slightly shorter versions, so their timings are not the same as mine.

No idea why my BFi version is in sepia, but I've learned to be philosophical about these things ....
