Hi guys who know about my Mini yes its been in an accident a chap drove into the front of the car so it may be up for sale to interested parties.  Admittedly I am gutted I put a lot of cash and effort into the car and it was worth it but I am not stopping their?  A new project looms oh yes I am still alive and un injured

Arggghh joss, I feel for you.  In this day and age any mini crash we can walk away from is a good crash.  Money aside Mini's are to most a hobby and hobbies always continue, you've got the right attitude, brush yourself off & continue.  Best of luck to you.

Thanks chaps and yes it is a hobby and in a way its fun and you are right the money has no relevance as long as you got your health.  The insuarance has been notified and will be surveyed but I don't think it cat d damage it may go to Mini heaven (I don't think so)

Joss OMG not again :-( i can watch the carnage any longer :-) "if it wasn't for bad luck you would have no luck at all"

 

glad you are ok, what did they hit it with? a tank!! it looks beyond an economical repair this time.a  new shell would be the quickest way but not the cheapest.

a good project for someone else joss, you must have lost the enjoyment factor by now mate, the amount of time and money spent on that wee mini is astronomical. i spent around £15k building it :-(

Did this sell, guessing so as it's an old post? If not, message me.
