The Mini is my first love when it comes to cars, I still have my 1986 Mini Mayfair (although it has a different shell and all the other bits are stored ready for clean /refurb and rebuild.

Cams and carbs? I'd love to have a go against that on some twisty back roads or better still a cart circuit!

Oh my lordy! That is a beauty. Got any more pics from the front and inside, ohhh and that plucky little engine??

Are there no similaritys in terms of an old school mechanical feel to them both??

This was my Mini. By the time I had finished it, it was about as original as Trigger's broom. Wished I had kept it..... but you cant keep everything.

Yours looks lovely. All the best ones are red!!
