Superb film with mock Elan-crash (the Tara Browne incident); this footage keeps getting taken down by Beatles money-men- watch it while you can.

What's the story with that video? Would I be correct in thinking it's not contemporaneous with the music? I doubt they had the technology to do monochromatic style video with flashes of colour . I know that reg no. YEE 7 from somewhere too just can't pull it from the brain recesses.

Awaits being made to look daft! (Not difficult I know!).

Summary then video is dated 1995, the car YEE 7 is an S2? So wrong series and year to be a Camay car which would be around 68 or so.

YEE 7 was/is owned by Mandy Hadfield, wife of Simon Hadfield, of the eponymous Motorsports company. Pete Taylor posted a photo of the car parked up at Oulton at an historics race meeting in 2013

KMR 659F is allegedly one of the Camay cars, first registered in Swindon on 29 Jan 68 so probably built late 67 so a S3

Mandy and YEE 7 are also on the front of the second edition of Elite, Elan and Europa.

VEVO is official record-company stuff on YouTube, so it'll probably stick around. Good stuff, brings back memories of the '90s. :mrgreen:

Also reminds me that I've got tix to see Ringo & the All Starr Band next month.
