'Frog-eyed' Sprite (or is it bug-eyed? in the USA) on the far right.

Other cars also listed separately.

I believe the US term is bugeyed.

Already agreed this is Hollywood pretend-London, but it made me chuckle. There's a puddle in the road, so unless the horse was really incontinent, it's meant to symbolise rainy England. This has 2 problems [1] British roads are cambered so puddles drain away quickly so you might get puddles in the gutters but not the centre - we may not have an Empire anymore, but we expect it to rain and take appropriate precautions, which leads to [2] we do not park convertibles with the roofs down.

[:heink] Why you write only "England"?
Sourcing annother anecdote. Your fault :p Once my wife and me have met a couple from Birmingham. We've told them, that we had in the July a very rainy vacations in Scotland, but the Scottish people have told us "Sorry for that, but it's the worst rain-swept summer since years now"
Their answer: "This the Scottish are maintaining EVERY year"

No kilts, bagpipes, haggis shops, Nessie posters, mountains, porridge adverts, thistles in the flower beds, drunks with whisky bottles ....
