Absolute Beginners

Okay, watched the movie Absolute Beginners (1986) tonight. It's a hard video to get.

It's kind of like West Side Story, but set in East London in the 1960s. Here’s the plot: There’s an evil property developer that uses the BNP (or something like it) to clear out the resident of a harmonious inter-racial neighborhood. The closest you get to seeing Patsy Kensit’s bodacious tata’s is at minute 107, and about 90 seconds later, the movie ends. During the movie at least 4 different J-Types make an appearance. One gets torched in the end. Here’s the screen captures. I think the ice cream van is still around.

Also the stripped one exits, it was the one being repaired in the plastic tent, I nicked named it Mr Therm as the owner at the time was going to restore it in a Gas companies livery.
It has passed through a couple more owners since then. The Restoration seems to have stopped.

Yes, I remember Mr. Therm -- the Esso van.

Yes, I was playing "spot the J Type"; then I was eagerly distracted by the propsect of Patsy's blouse falling to the ground. I was successful in the original purpose.
