Trivia A red Fiat 850 Coupé car, registration UJB 92G, makes a brief Hitchcock-like appearance in many of the episodes. Usually it is parked at the side of the road, as the villains, or the Sweeney drive past. It is clearly identifiable from a distance, because its tax disc is placed high-up on the windshield, rather than being in the lower-left corner. See more »
