My first car at 16 was a 1974 Austin mini 1000, being a teenager it was soon equipped with momo mags, a header, ansa exaust, webber downdraft gender flares and wider tyers. Now that I’m near retirement I’m buying my last car a 1991 JDM MINI 1000. Classic black with a white roof. 45000 kms only. My love for MINIS never left me

Well, I have been told by the guy I bought it off that it is a 1975 mini clubman with a 1100 motor and the paint code is "hairy lime" hence my "handle".It is a "project" car for me and my family, and we hope to put it on club rego.

This is my first Mini 'Elsie'. This photo is from our European road trip through the Austrian Alps.
Now we're back in the UK I'm giving her a bit of TLC to get her up to scratch (engine swap and body work like new sills and floor cross member etc).

Don't drive it at the minute as I'm part way through the restoration of my 1987 rover mini but can't wait for that first drive when it is done
