Just wondered if anyone has seen or heard of one?!

Here is a link to a beetle http://retrorides.pr...p;thread=109145

How awesome would it be to have a mini mini! I know you probably think its small enough, but a scaled down single seater to the correct proportions with a motorbike engine in the back would be fun :) haha

Russ Swift the fella who does all the spinning to parking spaces backwards used to have a child sized mini that his lad drove. I'm sure we've got the old copy of Mini World or Mini Magazine that it was in years ago down at work.

These have been in the rod seen for years called "Tot Rodz" at most rod shows they even have there own concours and trophys.
but i've never seen a mini version and think that would be really cool!!!

I would love to see one! I really want to make one! Might be easier to make a general shell mould and gt it made in fibreglass and build a space frame and run a 650 v twin engine or similar, would be a little machine :closed: haha
