They were a thing of... well, maybe not reverance, but they had a strong following in the States. I remember the Mini Cooper S modelsracing at Sports Car Club of America events, their little inside rear 7" wheels off the ground on hard turns.

A friend had one that was a little past its prime. Its externally-mounted electric fuel pump had a habit of conking out, so he rigged a clapper on a cord that ran over a pulley at the rear roof interior to another pulley on the windshield pillar at the front. When the pump stopped, he'd yank the cord a couple of times, the clapper would rap the pump, the pump would start, and off he'd go again.

That shot works beautifully in B&W, TD. I'm with Lisa, looks like a magazine ad.
