View Full Version : Exchange & Mart: Thunderbirds (1989)

I've got a copy of this in a commercial break on my original UFO re-runs video from 1989, and I was thinking of uploading it onto Youtube, but it looks like someone beat me to it!

I may still have a go at an upload, as the quality of my recording is a bit better than this one. Does anybody recognise the car?

The puppet thing is extremely creepy.....

But the Nova...full aero body kit, split side windows, hidden headlights, faired in turn signals on the nose.... belong to someone?

And Full Moon hubcaps too. Looks great.

But that super marionette and and the guy at the end are certainly very creepy!!

I noticed what appears to be a rear wing as well.

Its obviously a Mk1 bodyshell, and I remember seeing some pictures of Nova in a kit car magazine with aero side skirts and Moon discs. Perhaps it was this car, but I have no idea of its history. I joined Club Nova in 1990, shortly after Dave Iles took over from Ray Nichols.

What makes you think Eureka Martin? Is it the pop-up headlights?

My favourite Supermarionation was Captain Scarlet... :D
