I was watching that really boring Co-op ad on the telly last night. Then the shot of the two kids with some toy cars on the back steat of an MPV came up and I thought Blimey! that's a Beta Sedan they've got there. I got out my Politoys 1:43 Beta 1800 and my daughters checked out the ad. later on and confirmed the sighting.

I don't think there's much cool quotient in the Co-op but how jolly to see a Beta Sedan on telly, even if it is a toy. And my daughters didn't acuse me of being sad...........

Was it the "Wife" ad, as opposed to the apparently equally annoying "husband" version? If so, do you mean the one in the picture attached? I'm not sure, but that looks a bit like a Corgi Rover SD1 to me. I'm sure a certain Mr Collins will know for sure!

You are of course perfectly correct. What a shame. I was quite excited for a bit there. And I will have to send my daughters back to car recognition classes!

Yours disappointedly

Never mind.

Let's just tell ourselves that the Co-op's first choice was a Beta saloon model, but it got veto'd by the Producer in a bid to encourage "buy British"

Panel gaps like that? - definitely a Rover!

Can't be a proper Rover SD1 though ... there is still paint left on the panels.
