The interesting thing about the "Once in Vogue" advertisement 2 above is that while the Mini does indeed look comparative timeless, both the models looks so firmly rooted in the 70's they may as well be wearing velvet lune pants & a mirror covered top hat.

The models in the ad look like they'd be Martini drinkers, whereas Sir Noddy of Wolves looks like he'd prefer a drop of meths..!

The Broadspeed GT previously owned by the Bee Gees drummer Colin Peterson... the colour was Alfa Romeo Yellow Ochre, I think it really suits it...

I have never managed to understand Pinterest.

It just seems to throw up bad copies of other people's images & is covered in popups.

My pinterest feed seems to work ok, it can be a bit repetitive sometimes but I've found some rare stuff by persevering with it (not just Minis either, lots of rare Italian car related stuff and WW2 images). Found a few of my own photos on there occasionally...!
