OK then, here goes:

This is Nemo the Neon (still only 22k on the clock!), which I'm currently driving:
Image

Technically this is Jane's car; she caught the Mini bug after last year's Crich show (which Philster will remember) and this is the result. In the meantime Nemo has been registered to both Holly and Adam, and back to Jane, as the youngsters are now driving more "reliable" (hah!) modern cars. Adam did have a little mishap with a lamppost on black ice, leaving me this to sort out - ouch!
Image

This is Skye, currently in the garage:
Image

Right now the subby's off - going back on this afternoon after repainting, and about all you can see under the sheets is this:
Image

Evy the Clubby sadly hasn't moved from this spot since attending Clubman 40 at the IMM; she's awaiting a slot in the garage to be finished off:
Image

Eddie is for sale, at least he will be when I've fitted a new sill and got a new MOT:
Image

And Elfie and the Estate haven't moved for about a year, both awaiting garage slots, Elfie for a new subby and general TLC and the Estate for most of a new back end.

Too many toys so I don't use them. I'm going to keep the GTM as a foot in the Mini scene and off-load the other three Minis (two already spoken for) and two of the Fords. Trying to get back to manageable levels so I can spend some time driving them rather than spending all my free time keeping on top of servicing, MOT's, maintenance etc and saving a chunk on tax and insurance (although the Clubby and one of the roundnoses are tax exempt).

Hah! Been there done that, still have trouble resisting at times... Record was 15 cars in the household, now down to, er, 9 including 5 Minis.

Here is my 850;

Image

She's got new front floors, new front panel, just ordered the a panels and a spot welder to fit. New oil & plugs, new drums on the front, new shoes all round, and new brake pipes all round. I have new doors to fit. Rear of the car rust wise looks good!

I just need to finish the brakes, tweak the carb (she's a bit rich) get the dreaded MOT and a respray (sprayer is lined up ready to go!)
