Started watching but looks like a: "hold it till evening Macallan and stream buy the fire" type of a clip.
My uncle had a proper left drive when I was a kid in Minnesota. Amazing winter car - excluding too deep a snowfall. At the other end, while whiling away a winter in Harrogate, England - I was able to often borrow a 3/4 race mini. What a rush. Sound and fury far exceeding the actual effect but fast none the less.
Such a missed opportunity for the English car industry that they weren't able to extend capitalizing upon it as say Honda did with the N600.
Today, we Mini about in our S Clubman. Too freakin' cool.
"... self preservation society..." to be sure.
