My knowledge of american cars is minimal, but I saw a pair of them in the Northumberland backwater of Allendale today.

So have a go at these, the white one from a distance I thought was a Rover from the front end.

Number One

Can't quite work that one out. Check the front end out to confirm you are on the right track!

Yes Yes Yes! I have now educated myself..dont know what an FMV is though...
Spoiler: show
"I’ve since discovered there are two schools of thought behind this phrase. It was used in a 1970s kids TV programme called Noah & Nellie. It was also used to summon British seaside visitors onto trip boats (dating back to the Victorian era), and since adapted for use by anyone who’s about to embark on a happy, holiday journey." from here
