The Cortina had to go to the garage that day and his accordion wouldn't fit into the boot of the courtesy car.

No pictures sadly, but in 1967 Scott Walker bought a new Mk1 Mini 850 in maroon and had tinted windows fitted to it. The car was vandalised by a young female fan later that year when she didn't like something had said in an interview in the Melody Maker or the NME.

Bigger version of the shot showing Jim McCarty sitting in his Mini whilst Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page and Keith Relf stand about. No idea where Chris Dreja was that day. Picture must be from late 1966

Looks like Beck had a Mini in the early 1990s

The Yardies pic was taken in early 1968 Stu, by Linda McCartney, just round the corner from Jim McCarty's flat. Chris Dreja is the one standing behind the Mini, Beck had long left the band by the time the pic was taken ;)

I just saw a big nose and thought Beck. I'd even looked at pictures of the others and still didn't click that it was not Beck. :oops:

I know not everyone on here does facebook, but on one of the Beatles groups I'm in there's some newly discovered footage of George Harrison driving his psychedelic Radford Cooper S on location filming for 'Magical Mystery Tour' on 24th September 1967...
