Deano bought ROO from Rog in March
2004. Rog had originally bought her for a wedding where they
needed a red, white and blue Mini for an Italian Job theme. ROO
was originally red, but was yellow when Rog bought her, and he had her
resprayed to her original colour.
It turned out that ROO had been painted
yellow to star in a Channel 4 film made in 2000, 'Corr Blimey' about the
love affair between Sid James and Barbara Windsor. Click on the
image on the right to see a slideshow of stills from the film.
It's interesting to see that the interior shots still show her interior
as being red!
