  • Description

    THEY CLAIM IT'S THE MOST COLOURFUL CAR IN THE WORLD. FOR WHEN LAW STUDENT DENNIS MIZZEN AND HIS GIRL FRIEND GLORIA PELMAITBURN, A PICTURE RESTORER, STARTED REPAINTING THEIR MINI RUNABOUT, THE RESULT WAS A HIPPIE'S DREAM.

    IT TOOK DENNIS AND GLORIA TWO WEEKS TO COMPLETE THE TRANSFORMATION OF THEIR MINI MOKE WITH WEIRD INTERMINGLING COLOURS. THEY COPIED THE DESIGN FROM A WAY-OUT DESIGN OF A HEADSCARF.

    THE IDEA WAS SUGGESTED TO THEM BY THE OWNER OF A RESTAURANT IN CHELSEA, LONDON'S ARTIST QUARTER. EQUIPPED WITH PAINT IN A DOZEN BRIGHT COLOURS, BRUSHES AND A SPRAY GUN, THE COUPLE, HELPED BY FRIENDS, SET ABOUT BRINGING A SPLASH OF COLOUR TO LONDON'S TRAFFIC-CONGESTED STREETS.
