I'd phone the British Mini Club and actually speak to them, at least then you'll have an answer. Their number is on the website.

I'd love to see this there

I did phone them about a month ago :highfive: did get a verbal that it would

be in! maybe the old Motor Trade head (a deals not a deal until the monies in the bank)

in this case paper work proof! + the hotels booked also.

Hope to see you there

I am taking it to Bingley Hall, still waiting on confirmation from BMC! they did say middle of the

month, be sure to say Hello! as Ive said it will be its first time out of West Yorkshire in 40yrs

Hoping to go and let the 2 previous owners that I know see it before then.

 

Thanks for the interest, Frank

Once again all I can say is thanks again for the comments, 

with this now to be shown for the first time at the BMC show at Bingley Hall

the final little jobs more or less done, its booked in for its MOT on Tuesday 16th

then can apply for its Historic Vehicle Tax, then weather permitting get a few miles 

done to check it out before its first time out of West Yorkshire.

So  some photos on its first time out of garage for a few months,

The plan for next weekend is to visit the 2 surviving previous owners and let them

view it as to me the history maters as much as the car.

As a interesting point its a year ago next week that my previous Mini was MOTed.

 

Hope to meet some of you at Bingley,
