Search Phil Mires Classic Cars and Phil Mires Antiques and Collectables.I have no connection with this gentleman whatsoever.He certainly appears
to have a work ethic which is sadly lacking these days.Perhaps we need more with the same drive.

I notice he has a half-page ad in MiniWorld magazine saying he needs stock of quality Rover Minis.
