Episode 8


Episode 8 begins with Quentin imparting his encyclopaedic knowledge on the Mini – the car that got off to a bad start what with Stirling Moss being the first to crash it and the fact that nobody liked it…

However, BMC’s answer to the Ford Popular and petrol rationing soon became hugely successful and rolled off production lines for 40 years. Then there’s a spectacular barn find – this time in an actual barn – where Chris finds a long-lost Crayford Capri convertible, minus a few finer details…

Alex Riley returns, this time in pinstripe, to showcase a yuppie’s favourite: the BMW 635 CSI. Decent ones are remarkably cheap today, considering their price tag at birth. Then we revert to the Mini theme, in which Bruno pushes a rather special 1965 Cooper S in pursuit of an E-Type-slayer of a lap, and Jodie joins Monte Carlo rally legend Paddy Hopkirk in another Cooper S for some serious sideways action.
