How many Alvis can you spot in the film "The Lady in the Van"? Featuring in cinemas across the UK at the moment.

I reckon there is 3 in 'The Old Lady in the Van'. 2 TD's and a TE or F.

Coverage of Bo'ness Hill Climb on Channel 71 last night feautured a FWD and a couple of 12/70's. The presentation was decidely amateurish, but still more watchable than Clarkson.

There are two main ones (although I think a TD21 showed up for a couple of days - not sure if it made the cut). Mine is the red TE21dhc. The grey TF21dhc belongs to a chap who lives close by - his car was beautifully restored..

Mine was always parked by Alan's house when we were neighbours (and just after the time of filming I was staying at the house). The film company asked if they could use it, and I of course let them. I wasn't prepared for how much screen time the car got, though...
