A viewer emailed Angela Rippon when she was presenting the 'GB News Breakfast Show' this morning, to say he remembered her bringing her Mini into his garage years ago....she replied she still has it, a 1960 Austin which she said is so old it is not called a Mini but an Austin Seven which of course is correct, only the Morris was named the Mini-Minor in 1960.

Angela Rippon on fast cars and the future of driving
Angela Rippon was the Top Gear’s first presenter back in the 1970s “When I was presenting it, it was very much magazine programming."
The legendary BBC journalist can’t hide her excitement when she’s talking about driving. Whether describing tearing up the motorway in her Mazda MX5 convertible or reminiscing about her antique Mini—“It came off the production line on 6 April, 1960 and they only started making them in the back end of 1959. It may be one of the oldest Minis on the road.”—it’s a subject you sense she could enthuse about for hours.
