My name is Christian and I’m the proud owner of a Mainstream Carburettor Cooper for eleven years now. Being a mechanical engineer by trade, I was looking for a project which would serve two requirements. Firstly, I was looking for a car that I could tinker with in my spare time and secondly, I was looking for a way to improve my English language skills. Eleven years later I have done a lot of spannering and are right now in the process of a long overdue major overhaul. Regarding my language skills you may judge yourselves.
Latest news beside the (as usual?) slow progress on the Cooper, is a new arrival in my garage. To say it with the words of Mike Brewer: ‘I just bought myself a Mini Van.’ It’s a fairly original 1980 build 998 ccm model which I just couldn’t resist.
I’m looking forward to exchange on technical details with you in the future and remain with the best wishes from the Pied Pipers Town.
