Our club (Finnish Sports Car Drivers - Suomen Urheiluautoilijat) did a spoof of a James Bond movie at the Lahti Classic motorshow. Here´s the set up and the link to the video of the car.
"The Spy Who Left Me"
It's 1979 and the time for the new James Bond adventure! Roger Moore and EON productions had gone their separate ways and the producers had decided that it was time for something completely different. But who could step in to the void left by the English Moore, and the Scottish Connery? The obvious answer was found from Wales -- The Welsh tiger Tom Jones was announced to the world as the new James Bond in February 1979. Soon after this it was announced that the leading lady would be the Finnish songstress, Arja Saijonmaa.
The movie premiered in September 1979. Despite the movies undeniable artistic merits, it did not succeed at the box office. With the benefit of the hindsight you can argue, that the world was not ready for a James Bond musical, but who wouldn't have made a musical, when you have the talents of Tom Jones and Arja Saijonmaa at your disposal? And who could ever forget the exhilarating finale, the disco-schlager duet "What's new P*ssy Galore?" as sung by Jones and Saijonmaa. Inevitably, the producers had to cut their losses and return to a more traditional formula. Roger Moore returned to the fold as the spy with a licence to kill, but not to sing.
The Finnish Sports Car Drivers - Suomen Urheiluautoilijat have restored the third star of the movie, Bond's flying Lotus Esprit. Hallinportti aviation museum at Jämsä, Finland participated in the restoration process by lending their invaluable expertise to the restoration of the cars complex flight and armament systems.http://sua.fi/node/37
