The famous Ford Zephyr fast response patrol cars were replaced with more up-to-date Pandas when the series was revived in March 1967. This reflected reality, as the Lancashire Constabulary (on which the Z Cars set-up had been largely based) had begun using them whilst the series had been off-air. See more »
Funny how relatively little you remember after 30-40 years!
When I was a lad in the far-off days of 405-line black-and-white TV, Z-Cars was required viewing, the more so as most of the characters spoke with the same accent as my mothers' cousins whom we regularly visited on Sundays in Birkenhead every few months (though our accent was /very/ Welsh!).
I remember that a boy who travelled on my school bus got cast as a 15-year-old tearaway in one episode in around 1973. I don't think he had much of an acting career afterwards (he's not on the IMDb, anyway!), but I did see a photo of him in Sgt Lynch's clutches in the local paper afterwards.
