hiya, :lol:

My name is Wendy-Nicola. Im 19 years old and im getting my 1st mini soon yay!
I've loved mini's since i was little and now im all grown up i want one of my own! I like old-style mini's more than the new style mini's! :)

Nearly everyone in my family have owned a mini. My dad once owned a mini van but had to get rid of it due to him being so tall! I have loads of mates who have a mini or are getting a mini soon, these mini's range from classics to projects.

I have been in a crash in a mini. :rolleyes: I wasn't driving, i was the passenger but we were driving down a country road at night, prob a bit faster than what we should have been oops! :rolleyes:* When all of a sudden we skidded onto the other side of the road and hit the verge which sent the mini spinning around bout 3 times. I don't remember much about it as it happened so quickly. We came to the conclusion that the mini tram-lined because the alloys are 13 by 7!
Lucky the mini didn't have too much damage but it was enough! We managed to destroy the front bumper and grill oh and i must not forget the alloys! One alloy was really bad and so was the tire.
Next day we set off putting the mini right, first day we took everything that was destroyed off the mini, second day we took a trip to a supplier which took all day getting there and back! third day the new alloy, front bumper and grill was replaced!
It took longer than usual because i had to take a visit to hospital on the first day, which i found out that i had whiplash and bruised ribs which i was in pain for 5 days but it still hasn't put me off having a mini!

Just done the Riviera Run 2005! Which i thought was great and this was where i met mowag and mini bullet (who are really great guys!) Thats how i found out about this site! I've gotta say though their mini's look great! :rolleyes:

I'm now really looking forward to owning my 1st mini! Can 't wait! :tongue:
