Spotted by a mate of mine on Facebook, with the question "Which gangsta car would you choose?".
Who here has chosen this car?

O.K. I know a bit about gangsters,..there is no way that they would choose the Interceptor,because there were usually minimum of three,plus the driver,so you must have a four door car for everyone to jump into as you exited the bank. It's a no brainer. I think the Jag was the car of choice,more agile than a big Merc,and easier to aquire too. It would certainly outrun the Granada,which the sweeney had at the time ! ......Me ? I live in a house previously owned by a notorious french bank robber/drug dealer/murderer. My lounge was a shooting gallery,and the downstairs toilet has a very clever gun storage that no one would ever find. However,they did catch up with him in the end,and he went away for many years.

On the other hand .....

Modesty Blaise, who fought gangsta’s, and, legend has it, that she got her start as one, always drove a Jensen FF.

I would expect that she knows what she’s doing when it comes to gangster cars.

Maybe it’s a small crime syndicate.

So, does the car belong to anyone here?
My gangsta car...? Probably a Ford Mondeo or a Toyota
Corolla... stay off the radar... the blander the better. :D :D
