I remember J822HPB the superb W&P demonstrator Margrave Mini was often parked in and around the Epsom workshop on show for potential coachbuilt Mini buyers. This W&P Margrave was driven by Mike Bush and my late brother Steve Bell on the 1993 Italian Job and was recently featured in the MCR Cooperworld magazine awaiting to be recommissioned.

'slighty stained interior'

:lol:




The same year Sally Farmiloe gave a “Kiss and Tell” interview to the News of the World in which she described how the pair had once slipped away from a Tory fundraising ball at the Dorchester Hotel to an underground NCP car park in Audley Square. “We began kissing passionately and at first we tried to make love in the front seat of his Mini,” she recalled, “but it was very cramped and awkward so we got out.

I was wearing this fantastic white silk gown, one of my favourites, and he looked very dashing in his dinner suit. I’m ashamed to say we made love on the floor of this dratted car park. My skirt was hitched up around my waist. Little did I know it, but I got engine oil all over the bum and back of it.

Afterwards I went straight back into the Dorchester looking immaculate apart from the streaks of engine oil down my back which I knew nothing about. There I was parading around and nobody said a word to my face. It was only when I got home that I realised the dress was ruined. Jeffrey was kind enough to replace it with a stunning gown that cost almost £1,000.”

Its usually when a sound deadening pad has half pulled away leaving a little pocket of water to eat away at the panel :(

Judging by the rear subframe it was obviously a bit of a pain to uproot it from the undergrowth.

So what is a dash, some badges and a grille worth? Not £3500.
