Man reunited with nan's old Mini...

Post by mab01uk »

A man plans to restore his late grandmother's Mini, which he last saw in 1994, after spotting it being sold in an online forum.
Daniel Fox, 36, stumbled across the Mini while shopping for a second-hand vehicle.
Mr Fox, from Great Gransden, Cambridgeshire, said he was "amazed" to spot the 35-year-old car languishing in a Norfolk garage.
The radio presenter was reunited with the Mini on Sunday.
Mr Fox said he had been looking for a similar vehicle for about a year when he saw the picture posted online.
"It had no number plate so I didn't immediately recognise it, but then I had to do a double and triple take," he said.
