i think a company and your dad are two different things
My dad didnt do anything he jsut has a 7 and saw the thread about top gear on the website. People from the Lotus 7 oweners club tried for the 50th anniversairy of the 7 which was last year. 1957 2007. An important car in British motorsport history, Colin Chapman i hope many would agree obviously a vital part of the way motorsport is today all over the world.
Andy Willman is the man with the final say on topgear stuff.....
Caterhams are one thing BUT a MINI is another!! I know I would say that as I own one. Top Gear have had them on the show before and Clarkson loves the britishness of them.
As for being watched by 200 million around the world, have you ever read one of the mini magazines on sale, I don't think there is a country in the world that doesn't have an owners club of some sort, the people of the world LOVE IT!!! There can't be many cars in the world that has as much of a following as the the mini, The caterham not being one of them (I'm not saying that caterhams aren't a great car, and don't have a large following, because they are, and they do . But you must agree that they don't have a world wide following like the Mini has).
What is anyone asking them to change? Just to feature an intresting car, on a remarkable aniversary, which people around the world would be intrested in!!!!
No one is worried about public opinion, Z cars minis are great for getting the adrenalin going, they sound and look amazing,
it would be nice to share the experience with other petrol heads, who may not know of such an unsuspecting giant killer.
I'm sure Chris and the Z cars team would also like a bit of publicity and recognition for building a great little car, eh Chris!!
I couldn't agree more ".......it would be great", but I, like you have my doubts. I don't think this will happen, but as I said when I started this topic ".......just a thought"
the smiling faces say it all about your opinions to me. Im building a Zcar I dont need your convincing on minis cheers. you misunderstood my point.
There is no need for this public show of appoval..... Its great the way it is
