Here's 'Mackie', my first Mk1, bought after I saw it parked up in a side road and left a note on the screen for the owner in case he wanted to sell it.... looks a bit green in this pic but it's actually Island Blue....

Parked outside Paul McCartney's gaff in St.John's Wood on the way to Crystal Palace for the London - Brighton run, note the MkIV tail lights....

I sold it to buy another Mk1 and it's appeared on ebay twice since then, both times I wanted to buy it back but wasn't quite quick enough.

My first Cooper, bought at the Bobbington Mini Day for £1500....

Some stupid sod didn't tighten the 3rd/4th selector fork bolt and locknut. And it wasn't me as I didn't build it.

And being winched onto the truck, the drivers wing seam cover pinged off at the bottom, as it always did. I never really bonded with this one.

Saxondale Services on the A52/A46 junction in Spring 1992 - I expect it's quite different now. The 970 engine and SC box had gone back in and I was driving from Oxford to Darlington when I worked for Mini Machine. I'd set off about 6am and it was a superb day. The engine was really singing and suddenly, no gears. :x

I realised that day that expensive Minis were often not much better than cheap ones.

Returning to the UK after the 2000 Mini Europe Rally. E110UNA is, or was, a Mini Advantage aka 'Disadvantage'. It actually went really well with a Stage 1 kit fitted.
