Just found this on the BBC iPlayer. It features Spike Milligan, Keith Dodd, some Brummies and a few blokes in Japan.

No info about Spike Milligans Metro. You see him driving about making jokes in his Mini City.

I watched that and took on board the heart rending..., nay, tear jerking comments by the bloke on the shop with the hammer knocking shxxe out of the lower side panel to fit it to the floor pan and the bloke linishing all the grotty, snotty welds sort-of flat. It took a whole box oif tissues to dry my tearful sobs away. All about hand made bodies, long lost skills.......... I bought one of the last 500 produced and the build quality and pride-in-the-job was as lacking in that as it presumably was then. They probably used even LESS paint on the last ones!
