Take a Sunday drive with Spy Vibe and THE SAINT! Roger Moore as Simon Templar put his Volvo P1800 through the paces in a high-speed chase through 1963 London- not only a thrill of editing, but a wonderful time-capsule of the cars, fashion, and architecture of the time. The scene is from "The Rough Diamonds" (season 2, episode 10), which co-starred Douglas Wilmer (The Avengers, Sherlock Holmes, HG Welles' Invisible Man, A Shot in the Dark, The Baron, Hammerhead, UFO, The Protectors). Moore and Wilmer were reunited in Octopussy in 1983. Next up, Jay Leno's Garage takes us on a tour of the famous Volvo P1800 from The Saint. Wrap up your morning of motoring with XCar and their documentary about The Saint. Enjoy!
