your car will be something to check out at a show when you've finished fiddling😁

I'm just looking for another excuse to take my mini back to mainland Europe 😁


Thx! To be honest i am not going to any shows or even clubs. I think often they got it wrong. Those things are meant to be driven :)

I agree completely! As soon as I bought my mini I drove across northern France into Switzerland, over the Alps into Italy, around the Italian lakes, down to Genoa then back into France along the coast and then back to the UK 😎😬😬

Wish there were more meetings that are driving get togethers rather than shows.

Hi guys,

 

did not want to mess the categories of the forum. usually place here the parts I am customizing, but the next one is a dashboard, so I wrote it in the "styling" section, you can find all about it here:

with sources of parts and stuffs :)

I thought the term "cafe racer" normally applies to motorbikes, not cars, I see David Brown has some Cafe Racer inspired Minis for sale and from googling I found the below link. Before now I had no idea people were applying the term to Minis, we live and learn!

Actually you are correct. The term applies to motorbike following the british 60's leather jacket mouvement, ton-up boys, 59 club and so on.

So it is not canonical so to say. But it does not mean we should not get inspiration :)
