Wild Rover: Scots cop car sets world record at auction

A “jam sandwich” police car from the Life on Mars era has set a world record at auction. The 30-year-old former Grampian Police traffic car sold for £9,750, the highest price ever paid for a Rover SD1. The 3. 5 litre V8 – capable of 135mph in its heyday – was bought by the force in 1985 to catch speeding Aberdeen oil executives in... The vehicle, nicknamed “The Beast” by police drivers, was snapped up at auction by the Grampian Transport Museum in Alford, Aberdeenshire. It was restored to its former glory for Channel 4 series For The Love Of Cars, which follows Life on Mars actor Philip Glenister and a crew of mechanics as they hunt down and restore vintage classic cars. The former high-speed pursuit motor received a full revamp with its Grampian Police livery, stop signs, sirens and blue lights lovingly restored. The car, which was sold in Birmingham on Saturday, was expected to fetch £5,000 – £8,000. Mike Ward, the curator of the Grampian Transport Museum, was “chuffed” to snap up the car. “It’s sure to be a fantastic addition to our collection, and we’ll also make sure it’s put to good use at our very popular Emergency Vehicle Rides session which takes place on April 10. ”. The car was needed by police in the 80s to catch speeding... Grampian Police paid £12,000 for the car, which today would translate to £30,600 today. Ian Slorach, who was with Grampian Police from 1975 to 2006, spent much of his time behind the wheel of the hatchback. He said: “I went down to watch the auction and it was great seeing the car restored to its former glory. Seeing that car brought back some very enjoyable memories from my job at the time. The 57-year-old, who now works as a taxi driver in Inverurie, Aberdeenshire, added: “I’m looking forward to seeing it at the museum. Larry Collins, who lives in Purfleet, Essex, has owned the car for the last 11 years. Mr Slorach described him as being “quite emotional” when the car was sold. He said: “Larry realised that the car had been done up. Source: Deadline News

    Were the 70s and 80s all they were cracked up to be? Or have we never had it so good? Philip Glenister - one of our best-loved actors - takes a swig of Babycham, jumps on his space hopper, and heads off down memory lane to find out. Which Bond was better - Roger Moore or Daniel Craig? Was life better when we were served lashings of gravy, instead of a 'drizzle of jus'? And - most important of all - have Curly Wurlys really got smaller, or have we all just got bigger? Philip Glenister's Things Ain't What They Used to Be is a hilarious and affectionate look at the good, the bad and the ugly from three very different decades, that will have you laughing (and cringing) with recognition. If you're going on a nostalgia trip, you couldn't ask for a better guide.
