Illustration for article titled 1989: Twiggy Experiences Mini Flashback

The Austin Mini had the fourth-longest production run of any car in history, behind only the Volkswagen Type I, the Morgan 4/4, and the Morris Oxford/Hindustan Motors Ambassador. By 1989, it still had 11 more years to go!


This ad for the Rover Mini 30 Limited Edition features 1960s icon Twiggy going all misty-eyed over some beater Mini parked near her chauffeured Roller, resulting in a bunch of hallucino-Anglo-sixties imagery overcoming her. Fortunately, she could have gone right out and purchased a brand-new version of (essentially) the same car she loved Back In The Day.
