I have just taken delivery of a Mini which I will slowly restore into a show car.
Its a 1998 Mini Cooper MPI non-sportspack which someone at some point has painted Hot pink..
Being laid up for the best part of a decade in the wettest part of the world hasn't done it many favours but surprisingly, It isn't as bad as I was expecting.
Only 19,000 miles and it runs and drives pretty much spot on!
I met it in Southampton and drove it onto the ferry. As you can imagine, it got some looks, plenty of comments and stories about how people used to own one etc.
When we went to unload it back at the garage, the immobiliser was on and the fob battery is flat so I couldn't start it.
I'm so relieved it didn't do that on the ferry!
Anyway, for now, ill leave some pictures
