Another couple from Stanford. There seemed to be more Coopers than S's this year.

Sadly I think the early Binis look quite cute!

I agree but not sadly! They still look good and timeless compared to other contemporary small hatchbacks from the same era, OBL on a Y Reg are very early R50 press cars and now sought after. Get one while you still can, early R50 MINI's and the R53 'S' are disappearing fast from the roads not due to rust but uneconomic minor accident damage or garage repair costs for what are often only minor DIY home mechanic faults to sort out.

The history of the Y Reg MINI from the numbers :-
"In total, according to the available data, 634 MINIs received a Y registration. If we allow for an approximate 10% margin of error due to potentially inaccurate data and private registration plates it could be estimated the figure would be nearer to 700. Working with the available tax and MOT data, 406 MINIs were either taxed or on a SORN as of the beginning March 2018, 17 years after the first MINI was registered in the UK."

02 S Register:-
The 02S Register was setup by Tanya Field as a club for enthusiasts of the early MINI Cooper S R53s built in there first year of production.
