The initial set of photos were taken at the Jet Petrol station in nearby Kenilworth and a selection of these were used in the initial press release and the production of full sized posters which were displayed on Jet forecourts across the country.

 

The initial photo shoot was then followed up with the filming of a TV advert at a Jet Petrol station on the edge of Bradford.

 

Our Healey wasn't the only classic used in the TV as the advert showed a set of classics all turning up to refuel at the same time.  The other cars featured were a SIII Jaguar E-Type, and an AC Greyhound pulling a trailer with a period Cooper racing car on board.

We have done TV filming before and true to form it took about 6 hours to record enough video to pull together a 30 second advert.  The Healey's involvement was multiple takes of me driving up to the petrol pump, at different angles, with different light levels and with different things in the background. 

 

I was also filmed 'filling up' the Healey and had I been actually pressing the trigger on the petrol pump nozzle it would have ended up with about 1,000 litres of petrol on board.

 

The advert was broadcast on Channel 4 TV in the run-up to the Silverstone Classic was shown at regular intervals on the big screens at Silverstone through the Classic weekend.
