Well I spontaneously bought 2 minis this afternoon (unseen). 

 

Deposit paid and i Will collect them on Wednesday. 

 

The first is a 1970 with a 1275 and hydraulastic suspension, if it turn out to be a GT then it is a bonus. I really have no idea about the nuances of Clubmans

The other car is sold as a spares car, it is a round nose with either a 998 or 1098 engine, It runs and drives but is said to have a rusted floor pan. 

 

 

Not really sure what the plans are. I have been looking for a project after finishing of my k1100 headed "spi". These came up for sale at a good price, and  I couldn't help myself. 

 

If I am honest, I am not a huge fan of the clubman front, maybe i grow to love it?

 

If it turns out to be a GT then my plans may change or I sell it on. 

 

But my initial plans are that it will not be an a-series and dare I even say it, might not even be a clubman front  :nuke:. Don't hate. 

 

Or maybe the round nose turns out to be ok and that becomes the project.

Well that was short lived! 

 

After a member on here pointed out that the car was for sale in Norway, I found the car on a Norwegian page and it is now apparent I have been conned. 

 

Seems like the car was never for sale here. I have lost my deposit
