I was just going to say the same Swifty. Come on Nev, what about a small self published booklet about these little hatch-backs. It's not going to get into the worl;ds best sellers list but such a little booklet would certainly sell to the mini owners amongst us. After all, they ain't makin' no more.....

Thanks lads. But a book or booklet is not my style. There is some great info/pictures of Radfords in the Harold Radford Facebook group for anyone who enjoys them.

Interesting timing, I was reading through an old copy of Road & Track magazine, from November 1965, in which the publication reviews the new Austin Mini Cooper S 1275

And there was a great article all about Radford, which included this picture of a hatchback conversion in-progress. (excuse the grainy scan..)

If anybody can explain to me how to attach a PDF file, I can post the entire article. It's great, even includes a customized 'shooting brake' Aston DB5 wagon conversion. :shock:
