Mainly Minis Edinburgh Window sticker

Post by Pandora »

Maybe this is one for the Scottish members, but I'd like to get hold of a 'Mainly Minis' window sticker for the van at some point - the yellow and blue oblong ones from when Robin had the shop on Dalkeith Rd.

If anyone has one kicking about in a drawer, give me a shout

Cheers,

Al

Paid him a few visits over the years but never had a sticker unfortunately. Usually a mad dash over the bridge after work before he closed.

My Brother used to work on Saturdays in the butchers a couple of doors up the road from the shop (the butcher was our neighbour) and told me Robin's second name was 'Banks'.

The absolute B*****D! For years I thought his name was Robin Banks! :lol:

Glad to see someone as gullible as me. One of my pals told me his work mate was called Hugh Jarse, I just thought it was a foreign name, fair enough, they played me on that for months before I twigged!! Never trust your mates πŸ™‚

There is an old car collector who owned a very nice Bizzarini, and his name is 'Hugh James' and it always makes me smile to think 'ah well, at least he met his!' :lol:

Stuck down many years ago, so not for sale, but feast your eyes on this...

That's the one!

Could you perhaps scan it (and measure it)? Worst ways I can have one printed

I certainly can Al.
I'll have a go at scanning it and add dimensions with my next reply.
Inside the folder that has the sticker on, I found a photocopy of the Special Tuning catalogue for 1275GT and Cooper S, a couple of period magazine articles (1275GT, standard versus Pluspac "S" and also Special Tuning's Clubman with Miglia spec 998 - 90bhp with drum brakes...) and a brochure for Jomo 8-port alloy cylinder heads!
