Lovely stuff there Pete!

Regards the Ringo film clip - when he gets out of the car you can see one of the snappers with a 16mm cine camera, I wonder what happened to that particular footage, it must have shown the Hooper very well, filming from that angle...

It is a beautiful restoration - I sold him those 4.5 Mk1 Cosmics years ago!

The front number plate isn't quite right - the original was an ACE which has squarer digits (still available new at a price) - the restored car has Bluemels shaped digits. Anorak central I know....

Does anyone know who has the wicker car from the film? (the Blake Edwards car, the one with the broad border line round the wicker) I know JD Classics had it for sale after buying it at auction from Peter Nelson, but I'm not sure who bought it from them or if it stayed in the country?
