Thunderbirds are go… in Ilford! Businessman buys car disguised as TV show’s transporter

Fans of Thunderbirds will be thrilled to know that the location of Tracy Island has been discovered. Apparently, it’s in Essex.

Thunderbird 2 has been spotted on the roads by delighted locals – and some rather nervous drivers.

The machine was bought by a limo company in Ilford to ‘make people smile’.

Carl and Elaine Westwood, who have run LA Stretch Limos for 25 years, had to call a halt to business during the pandemic. 

But they decided to ‘give the company a boost’ by buying the vehicle from a dealer who had used it for promotional purposes.

It has a suitably loud engine and is supposed to be able to reach speeds of 90mph.

But Mr Westwood, 52, said: ‘I find that hard to believe.’

The couple hope to hire out the car, which started life as a Toyota, for weddings.

Mrs Westwood, 54, said: ‘Everyone has been filming it. We hoped it would make people smile and give everyone a laugh and it seems to have done that.’
