The car is/was a dark blue Radford with a Downton engine.
It was originally owned by movie director Hal Ashby.
MR purchased the car around 2000 or there abouts.

Austin Mini Cooper S LDM 986 D, Tartan Red and Black is probably the late Dave Evans from Holywell with possibly a female navigator. Dave once told me the car was Abingdon prepared.
