Corrected entry: George Carter's Vauxhall Viva is an HB series four-door saloon. It would have been built between 1968 and 1970; but the number plate, which has an "M" suffix, would have been issued between August 1973 and July 1974. It is a criminal offence to fit a later number plate to an earlier car. Get a grip, George.

Correction: When this film was made in the 1970's the number plates on Carter's car would have been legal, as the re-registration system that was in force at the time would mean that his Vauxhall Viva would been issued with the then-current suffix ("M" in this case). The current age related re-registration system was introduced around 1983.
