i just dont see that it is enough minus to be called minus..
if ya look at marcos then half of them i just cannot see how they are even classed as minis !
eg http://www.minimarco...hustler/h6.html

its more foreign matriel than minus ... sorry mate ...
ya already listed (#12#) as having one, will just add a note that u have a poject underway 'based' on minus too......
with link to your thread say ...

well im undecided ... i know its is/or been made up from aminus...

but its the old question of,
just cause its using part of something dont mean its that ..
if ya got that shell, and plonked it onto a, lets say a 'SMART' car .. (as it would prob fit ! .. ) or a fiat cinquencento
would that smart/fiat car then be classed as a minus too ??

Mick ...
PS hes already on the list anyhows :rolleyes: #12a#, and #12b#

well said andy!
If you take what gadgets23 is saying that makes ades "minus" only 3/4 minus 1/4 bike! ha! ha! no offence ade!his is a great minus! But the meaning of this thread was to find how many minus's there are even if they are 1/2 minius!or eaven destroyed!! >:rolleyes:

i have already put him in twice on the list. 12a and 12b....
so a record has been made on the 'minus list'

but its a good arguement andykettle with ade's in mind.... just were do ya draw the line ?
if some one only used say doors from a minus would it class the whole car as a minus ?
or say doors, boot and bonnet ?
were do ya draw the line ???

at present the space frame minus, is minus only due to the roof, body height, door surrounds and rear 1/4's
i mean it was even questioned if that was minus ! lol....
but to the trained eye you can tell :rolleyes:

so maybe with that in mind it should be classed its own number ?

LOL Have people missed a very big point here? The Minus is effectivley a kit car bodyshell? It's not some classic car? The very point that they obviously made a number or variants would seem to point out that they were always intended for purposes other than making a classic A-series mini :rolleyes:

I think that in that case the car in question needs to have the minus bodyshell to be classed a minus?! All the other parts would be from a mini donor car anyway. The doors are altered mini ones the bonnet is part of the "kit" the bootlid is normal mini.

It's like saying ooo thats not a proper westfield because it's got different headlights? lol :-

So you could quite rightly say it's not a mini but it is a minus.

yeah, ya gots a point there..

with that in mind, and the fact u can, if ya know minuses well,
tell that its a minus shell.
plus the already desribed 'space framed minus'...
this makes the total unique minuses to be found publicly to
#24# !!

well done group for a well discused brainstorming point, which didnt end up being a flame war :rolleyes: makes me pround :- must be the mini influence :dontgetit:

Mick ....

Yeah Minus's are quite easy to spot in the flesh. Just there are some similar fibreglass shells that have very similar design ques. And people seem very quick to call them minus's when they are just a fibreglass shell. :-

But tis nice to know am part of a very exclusive little club :D And will enjoy for a short while being the only bike engined one...... :ermm: :D

Looks like, dare I say it, a minus register! Keep up the good work.
And I don't think anyone with a minus shell needs to be excluded, so well done for conceeding to popular opinion.

I think it would be great if we could persuade the moderators to create a sub section on the site (like the turbo forum) where we can run a thread where you can register your minus with a pic, it's spec, and a short relevant story (how you got it, what you do with it etc).
Good idea????

Just sent this to Charlie Brown:

Hey charlie,
Can you please forward this to what ever moderator/administrator who can do the necessary computer jiggery pokery.
A guy on this thread(gadget24) http://www.theminifo...08
has compiled a list of minus owners. It would be nice to create a sub section forum (like the turbo section), where we can move this thread to, where minus owners can 'register' their car with a pic or two, spec list and short relevant story (how they got it, what they do with it, etc). We could them move these 'registration' pages to a seperate protected 'view only' thread, which would form the TMF Mini Minus Registration List. I'm still guaging interest at the moment, to find someone who 's prepared to look after this section, but in theory, is this achievable if a volunteer is found?
Cheers ALi

What do people think?

Potentially a good idea as we can then have minus specific questions and answers.... but being as there aren't what you'd call loads of them would it really be worth it?

It'd be nice but like i said not sure the Admins will see it as a good use of webspace.... :D
