Well the long since departed character Roy Evans (as played by Tony Caunter) actually starred in 'The Italian Job' in 1969. Okay he only had a small un-credited part and he was the prison guard at the beginning who told Charlie Croker to
'keep the noise down Croker, you're not out yet'
So he never actually got to ride in the Minis, but he's clearly smitten by them anyway. I assume the example used in that 1995 clip was a Mini Cooper 1.3i? At least the windscreen seal looks thicker?
Can anyone recognise the song that's playing on the radio in the background. I can remember it from then, but I can't for the life of me remember the title or the name of the band?
