Eddie Izzard had a MINI Cooper a few years ago. He talked about it on Top Gear when he was the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car back in 2004. I wonder if he still has one now.

EDIT: Just found this... the guy obviously has more taste than I realised.

"I've got two Rolls-Royce Phantoms, a Range Rover, a Jaguar XKR, an Aston Martin DB9 convertible and a very hot Mini Cooper which I drive more than anything else."

Obviously not bothered about it being an S or a Works... and he still wears his pants far too high.

DB9 Volante?? He needs to sort himself out and get the Coupe. The Volante is a footballers wifes car. Or better still, get a V8 Vantage

Eddie doesn't own his Mini Cooper anymore-I remember seeing it advertised (Classic MC in brg) in one of the Mini Magazines(or was it on ebay?) as "Ex-celebrity owned Mini Cooper..."

No, he also had a MINI Cooper. The Mini you're referring to is a classic. He mentioned that he had a classic and he also bought the new one. Jeremy Clarkson had a discussion with him about the Sat Nav.

There's more than one United States.
You've got urban Blue America and po-dunk Red America.

There's people in po-dunk that would hit you with a baseball bat for insulting Dale, Jr. I'm serious. These folks live for NASCAR.

I was an extra in Ace Ventura, Pet Detective (finest movie ever made...) and in Miami Vice (best TV series ever). My celebrity status ended after some magazine work in the early 90's though and I'm a common sort like the rest of you now.


Safety fast,
Bill
