Corriepedia and the Manchester Evening News have Carla's birth date as January 1975. The Vauxhall Cavalier was launched in November of that year..@itvcorrie If Carla was born in 1975, she can't have been conceived in Johnny's Vauxhall Cavalier - the Cavalier was launched in Nov '75.— Craig Ryan (@CraigA_Ryan) December 17, 2015
Of course, it was 40 years ago and memories fade. Plus, Johnny would have been in the throes of passion so we'll forgive him for not remembering the make and model of the passion wagon.
