I recently purchased a 1982 998 in grey.
It's pretty much my first classic car.... I used to have a 1930s Standard Ten but to be fair, at the time I didn't have a clue about car mechanics. I'm hoping to change that this time round!
I have a few friends with classic minis, parts seem to be easy enough and reasonably priced to get a hold of, and this community has already been my resource for the past couple of weeks with issues I've had so far (ignition).
