A familiar sound on every council estate during the 60's and early 70's , if you heard one you knew when you turned round you'd see a young Ted/Rocker type lad in a Mk.1,2 or 3 Consul/Zephyr/Zodiac :lol: ....whatever happened to them all ?, will they make a comeback ?, anybody got one ? :incheek:

I had Colonel Bogey on a '77 Chevy van when I was about 18 (1990ish), also had a real good Bull horn which was fun for frightening the shit out of people as they walked down the road. :bigsmile:
We used the van for work, so a lot of childish behaviour went on en route to jobs. :happy:

They were made illegal in '73 so anything before that 'must' have been fitted before the law cam einto effect ?:incheek: Not acceptable for MOT either.

Don't forget at all the indoor shows at Ally Pally, usually shops like Deals On Wheels & the Van Shop sounding off the Cavalry Charge, pretty sure you can hear them in the background on the Street Dreams video.
