Relax And Learn A Whole Bunch About The Hillman Imp

Welcome to Sunday Matinee, where we highlight classic car reviews or other longer videos I find on YouTube. Kick back and enjoy this blast from the past.

Sunday afternoons to me are always inexorably tied to British television. This is a holdover from the pre-good cable days when, as a kid on a late Sunday afternoon, there was nothing on TV to fight the gotta-go-back-to-school feeling other than an incomprehensible episode of Dr.Who. This show about the Imp is better.


It's part of a BBC series called The Car's The Star, and it's really fascinating, because the Imp is such a fascinating (and one of the very few British rear-engined) car. Look for prototypes named after slugs and a guy who's job it is to promote the Mini revealing a secret Imp-lust.
