... familiar thread ... since it seems to come up every once in a while 
it might be good if someone put it in the archives!

I don't recall seeing this one before, so I thought I'd chime in.  In another
Bond movie (View To A Kill) Patrick McNee takes the Rolls to a gas station to
be washed.  In the station are some kind of Renault, with the bad gals, a Mini
and an older Audi 80 (AKA Fox).  Since the Fox is near and dear to my heart I
thought I'd mention it.  This one was red and not in prime condition ...
