I bought the car last april as my first car. I had just gotten my liscense an I wanted to take on a project. After convincing my parents and finally finding a mini (not as easy to find in the U.S.) I picked up this little guy for $3000 US:
Then I began to strip the car down:
And recently, I ended up taking the shell out ot be sandblasted and primed. So as of yesterday it is looking like this:
Also got a shipment in from minispares:
Plans for the future include me getting it on the road as this is my daily driver! I have been carless for far too long. I'll retain the stock engine since it runs until i get the rest of the car done, then probably go for a 1275 or maybe a FWD motorcycle engine... hehe. should be painted somewhat soon HOK tangelo orange. Lots and lots of pictures and updates on the way.
