Hi Guys, Just letting you all know my mini was stolen this afternoon from outside my house. Please be wary of a Mini baring the following resemblences for sale anywhere.

1989 White Mini City f424kra. Black Roof, black arches, brand new 12" starmags, brand new black vinyl corbeau retro bucket seats, push button start on dashboard, Hella Spotlamps, 1300 MG Metro Engine painted red with chrome rocker cover, brand new 1.5" Twin SU carbs, centre exit perormance exhaust. Only had the car 6 days and im gutted. Probably being stripped to the shell as I type.

If you spot anything please drop me an e-mail - [email protected]

Some real b**tards in this world sometimes... I guess thats why you always make sure you have a receipt after you've bought a car with their signature on it :proud:
