I don’t really believe in judging anyone too much before I’ve met them myself but he does get a good kicking on social media for being a bullshitter. Which 1965 Austin Mini are they on about?

Possibly a car from a new series ?, I see there has been an announcement on a joint charity rally car project, the 'S' is 64 (IIRC), I know they are filming as they were at a (non-Mini) specialist I know a couple of weeks ago for another car

I've never got why he gets so much stick on forums and stuff, and would say he is far less a bullshitter than that antiques dealer based in Wales

Pinball Wizard was owned at one time by Mike Brewer's dad, Roger....but it was the late Mini Seven driver Micky Bray who actually built the famous “Pinball Wizard” Ford Popular from which the paint scheme idea for the restored Wheeler Dealers Pop was taken. Micky shared his first race Mini with my late brother Steve Bell for a couple of seasons in the late 1980's........Micky sadly died from cancer in 2006. More details on Micky Bray, his Mini Seven and Pinball Wizard here:-
