| Looked cool, music was great
All I remember about this show was I loved the atmosphere of it. I loved the cars, the style, the lighting, and most of all the music. It was so cool I tuned in every week to feel it. It was my favourite show at the time, but back in those days there was no internet to get information, and it just disappeared. I was surprised when I found out it was cancelled, it happens quite a lot - the people with the money never seem to care about the artistic merits of what they're paying for - people who visit a gallery or museum and stroll through without looking, just to tick the box.

I've been trying to track down one piece of music in particular, not sure if it was Joe Jackson or one of the other notable musicians who worked on the series - it's something like a 2/4 rhythm with a cowbell hitting rat tat-ta rat tat-ta with brass counter rhythm on top with great sax hook line; that one piece resonated perfectly and turned a good show into excellent show. It was a throw back to the golden era where some really amazing music was created for TV shows.
