Ok, here's Peggy. Bought in 2006 as a rotting MOT failure, restored and back on the road in time to go to the IMM in the Netherlands in 2008.

And here's this winter's project! A Funbuggies Freestyle, bought part built last year. Plan is to build it up to pass the dreaded IVA test ready for some summer fun in 2012.

Hey, Im Jordan just thought id post some of the minis my dad has done and our current project :D

This is a mini clubman Gt my dad sprayed and owned for a little while in the 90s
Image

My dad and his friend Ed did the body work and sprayed this mini in the 80s
Image

This is my brothers junior mini in the mid 90s. This car won several championships
Image

This is my brothers ministox. Leading the points when he had to finish due to age
Image

This is my brothers Mini pickup My dad completely re did and sprayed. i think this went to Hong Kong in the end
Image

This is my ministox currently 4th in the championship, The love of my life lol
Image

The latest project! This was found pushed up against someones hedge hidden away for 30 something years. managed to get it for 250 pound with subframes, engine and various other spares. Its never been on the road and still in the factory jel coating.
Image

I'll try find some more pics of other minis my Dads done and take some of the current minis at our house :)
Also in the 1960s my Grandad made a mini with square headlights. Its in a book called 30 years of mini or something. It would be great if anyone has any information about it, Thanks :)

My poor mini project for a first car. Sad about the condition of the panals, but happy that its got a 1275 metro engine in that runs wicked. The subframes, floor and boot are in solid condition, good for surviving 3 winters in one spot :)

Some cracking looking mini's in here.

The mini is an itch I keep getting and may very well have to scratch again soon, unfortunately funds don't allow at the moment but hopefully next year some time I may be able to get myself another one.

Here are a couple of pics of my much missed little Cooper

Image

Image

Image

And I'll sneak one in of my current car a 600ti, I'm hoping to keep this as a daily driver when I get another mini and the mini will be kept for fun and the odd trip to work.

hi there and glad to be aboard anothe forum of lovin Minis!

I recently resureected my 1968 Mini-Matic after she sat in the back of my garage in a puddle of mud and water since late 1997 (having kids retired her!)

anyways, she's back fixed up and has been on the road since late September and is loving it, as am I

after being dragged out of the garage cobwebs and getting a go over hoping she'll start
Image

and around 4 weeks later or so, roadworthy and back on the road!
Image

of course the poor old thing has had a few hiccups with being mobile once again, but am loving driving it everyday again regardlesss
