Withnail & I mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Whenever you get a shot of the car travelling along the motorway or road, the cars going in the same direction as the Jaguar are all true to 1969 - the year the film is set - but the cars travelling in the opposite direction or parked by roads are all contemporary with the time it was made (eg. Ford Sierras).
