Rusty The Minus (aka Mr Hoskins)
Posted 28 August 2007 - 10:19 PM
So, I thought, with the sale of my Fiat Coupe I had a bit of spare cash, I could buy another mini. The plan was to get one with MOT and tax to last me til after Germini. Howwever, frantically scanning Ebay, forum for sale pages and and other website I could think of I came across this topic. Its amazing what you can find when you look hard enough! I went to see it on the Saturday before I left for Brussels on the Sunday, and midweek I decided to buy it, following a few international phone calls! The Saturday I got back saw me delivering the Coupe up to Derby, to rush back to take delivery of the Minus that evening. Sunday I was throwing out the scrap inside and generally getting to work!

Oh yes, and the name. Rarz said I have to name this one, and to be honest I think this one deserves a name, or at the least I was able to think of a fitting name, two in fact! I've given it the ironic nickname of Rusty, and its proper name - Mr Hoskins, as a tribute to Bob Hoskins, since he's small on height, but a fapping legend!

I think there's almost enough of us for a 'Plastic Mini' section on the forum now!
Enjoy the car!

or maybe that is where the D could go once you have the vtec working

I wouldn't mind seeing a Vtec in it either, but in the back I think! Myself and Bounce were talking about how to do the gear change system whilst we were away. Thats a long way off happening though!
