Thank you, I am working on acquiring a 1959 Mini and there is also a few bucket list minis I would like, Mini K and of course a mk1 Cooper S in Almond Green and Old English White.

Hello again, just wanted to ask a question please, I see in the heading for the forum " people interested in the tuning & modification of classic BMC vehicles"
Is this forum more geared towards that rather than restorations and originality of cars?

I have spent some time looking through the previous posts with much enjoyment and learning, I guess I was just curious if posts are more intended to be about tuning as in modification's and customisation of cars?

If that is the case, are there any other mk1 forums more focused on history, originality and restorations?

I hope this is not in bad taste to ask, just trying to feel my way here and get the vibe for the community here.

thank you

You'll find the most comprehensive group of people within this forum. Some are very specialized. But If it's "Original Mini", you're in the right place.
