The yellow Austin Seven that bears an original Emett artwork across its rear made an appearance in Birmingham for the unveiling of the Blue Plaque. The car was reunited with Emett's nephew, who was co-owner of the car with his sister when the artwork was done, for the first time in nearly fifty years. The Lord Mayor of Birmingham also had a turn at the wheel.

The spelling of the name of the car was also finally settled, as the current owner had a note handwritten by Emett himself who had christened it. the name comes from the anti-malarial tablets handed out to the army serving in the Far East during the Second World War which were also yellow.
