    Default My Old Mini

    Here's My first car ... from many, many, many moons ago

    When I first got her she was an 850 Super Deluxe (850cc of pure power!)

    Then after Uni I started working and spent in total about 8 grand on her ... 2.5 grand on the engine alone ... a lovely Swiftune 1380cc Road Rocket fed by a 45 Weber

    I sold her a fair few years ago and then I heard she got sold on again.

    If you ever see her on the road be careful ... she can do 0-60 sub 6 secs, over 100mph (I think i got her to 110mph around Castle Combe), pull away from rest in 4th gear!!!! Oh and light the front tyres at 70mph in 4th!!!!

    I miss her ... occasionally

    Mini's cost a fortune though. I know one that is a original one but in perfect condition (as new) for 14 grand! Thats crazy. 1962 if thats means anything.

    Anyway nice car, what exactly did you do to it?

    Trust me they looked great and the fronts fitted in easily and with a little reprofiling of the base foam and rewelding of the frame the back fitted in great ... oh and they only cost 25 quid from a scrappy ...
