    That's a fantastic looking Mini. Great report, Mr. Carburetor.

    Edit - just found this:
    Several years ago, I saw someone trying to parallel park their car while blaring very similar music as to what's in that video. After what seemed like 15 minutes of trying and not getting the car into the spot, the guy drove away with the music still at ear-bleeding volume. It was very funny to watch.

    The other british car that was popular here was the Triumph/Standard Herald, But they are quite rare now.
    Thankyou for that it has gone straight into my pointless but interesting brain server of knowledge

    Hats off to you guys for managing this, how on earth did you know when exactly they'd be in Mumbai and how did you know exactly where?

    Heads-up - Transmission just confirmed that the special is set to air on 28 December at 8:00 (GMT, of course).

    HOWEVER - the article was quickly pulled and is no longer on the front page...

    EDIT: Here's the URL, which currently leads to "page not found" - http://transmission.blogs.topgear.co...pm-december-28
