Having owned a few modern mini's id though id jump to the classic's as I've always wanted one, so i bought one a month ago and its brilliant! I am the proud owner of a 1985 Austin mini 998cc in Gold, with only 64k on the clock, no major rust or rot spots quite the solid car. It had a few gremlins to sort out and she is running well but there must be a few more hiding somewhere as i think something still not quite wright.
Will post up on my problem or i think to be soon.
See you all in the forums
