I wonder if the scene from Clockwise (also featuring an Austin 1100) was done as a kind of homage to the legendary scene from Fawlty Towers? I have seen the film, but I'd never thought of that before.

If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.

Hahaha, you are so right !! And I never thought of it before either.

Maybe Cleese actually once owned an Austin??
