    Damn it, my r10 must have been a dud - its roof was all messed up after being rolled...

    Lucky the passenger had that grab handle. I wonder how many they used up doing that. Somewhere there's a story about how many minis they broke on The Italian Job (the orginal one of course).

    Great clip, thanks!

    Every day when I wake up I reach up in the darkness with my eyes shut and if I cannot feel anything that resembles a wooden lid I know it will be a good day. No lid today.

    I think the problem with your R10 roof was that the paint wasn't as good as theirs it didn't even get scratched. It wouldn't stop bullets though.
