The Sweeney

A great old British cops and robbers series from the seventies starring Dennis Waterman and the late (great) John Thaw. It broke all the rules and set a new trend in crime drama.
Never mind their famous super cool brown Ford Consul and evil handling old Rover Police cars - there are lots of Rolls-Royces in various episodes too. In one of the last episodes during a bank robbery under cover tip off, Jack Regan posing as a security guard is 'hit on' by an older woman claiming to have a 'Powder Blue Camargue'.
Another great RR & B spotting British TV series is the late seventies, early eighties 'Minder' also starring Dennis Waterman. Most of the time the villains drove old Jags, but the special people (usually Crime Lords) had Rolls-Royces...
