The newest instalment of Edd Chinas Outspan saga. In this episode Edd checks out why the car pulls to the right. You get to see how crudely these cars were built, I doubt they'd get done like that now.

The newest instalment of Edd Chinas Outspan saga. In this episode Edd finishes off repairing the front suspension. The second half shows how to set up castor, camber and toe. Finally he goes off for a drive to see if it has all worked out.

There is a nice article by Richard Bremner about driving one of these Outspan Orange Minis which was published in Autocar in July 2020.

Remember seeing one parked up just off the High Street in Berkhamstead many moons ago on our way to Whipsnade.

It may have been a cafe seating area or something but the kids laughed!

During the 1990s Outspan used to have their offices on the High Street in Berkhamsted in a building that has now been renamed Callard House.

They used to store three or four of the Outspan Minis in the car park of Startrite Tyres (now Kwik Fit) which was on the other side of the road next to Woods Garden Centre.

They were serviced at Underhill & Youngs and were a well known local sight. One was even used for a local wedding!
