Thought that I’d introduce myself
I’m just about to buy my first mini and can’t wait

I’ve got a fair bit of family history with the car, my granddad was one of the first people to tune the A series engine back in the 1950’s in a A30 for the tulip rally (which the car won :grin: ). Then during the 1960’s and early 70’s my dad spent much of his student life racing an ex-works mini at club level. So I guess that it was inevitable that I would end up looking of a mini myself

Cheers :grin:

Unfortunately the family knowledge only is for the early minis and I don’t think that I could quite afford one of those at the min :) One day
