Love the little Farina in the Arden photograph, wonder if it was Arden tuned too ?
Who knows! I wonder where the photo was taken? It doesn't look like the Arden premises.

That is Stoke bridge Ipswich. My studio is next door to the bell. I’ll post a pic of it now.

When lightin' fags in a car you can't beat a trusty Zippo, even works with the windows down. It can also be used to burn you car to a crisp when it's left you stranded by the side of the road.

Me, aged 3. No wonder I still love minis! This pic taken in 1965. Going by number plate it would been first registered in 1963, although he bought it new in '64.

Taken on a Saturday, on Sunday I was watching dad paint the tyres using a turpentine-based tyre black (as they did in those days). Dad left the paint brush in the tin after he'd finished. When he went inside I decided I'd do him a favour and continue painting the rest of the car (at least as far as I could reach) with the tyre black! He reckons when he later sold it, there were still signs of black paint in the seams etc.

Interesting how high it is sitting at the back too.
