    Cool My new mini!

    It's rather nice, only problem is the bonnent needs realigned, I think the guy took it off to fit the stage 1 kit. Also the fog lights don't work but I'm sure that'll be something cheap to sort.

    It's a bit slower than my old one, I don't know whether thats because its got the LCB manifold/cone filter type of stage 1 or whether it's because its running a little lean.

    nice one mate. is it a 998cc? i wouldn't mind a mini at all, great little cars, lots of character and a great laugh to drive.

    if war is the answer, then we are asking the wrong question

    It's 1985, so technically the plates aren't legal but the police don't seem to take any notice of it.

    It was a 998cc City E originally, but its been done up like a Cooper for the shows, apparently its been in the mags a few times too but I still havent checked that out yet but he said insure itfor 2k.. It's not as much fun as my old one, thats mostly because it has a normal sized steering wheel though

    I would love a clubby estate, although a pickup would be better

    Thats a very tidy Mini! i like it lots

    Will you be taking it to any of the shows this year?

    I would love a 1340

    I'm gonna get a 13" steering wheel for this one - the 12" was a bit small for me, I really need to sort out a cooper freeflow manifold for it too. I cant believe how good disc brakes are lol!

    And yeah I'll be at some of the shoes this year

    Shoes? Shows lol.

    Thanks for all the nice comments, it almost makes me forget the big hole in my pocket
