Re: Mini Racing Green Edition 1.0

I'd love to hold on to it but haven't the funds to keep her. This is the second Racing Green edition i've owned but the first Original Irish car, still has the original service books etc.

Re: What size wheels?

Thanks for all the input. Im still undecided, when the car is resprayed it'll only be used for good weather use and garaged the rest of the time. Has anyone fitted 13's on an older mini? Is there much to it?

Re: Mini Midas

Apart from the body work, how much of an original Mini is used? Could you not find an old rotten Irish Mini and transfer all the Midas parts on to it?

I know there are more options when it comes to ...

Re: ERA Turbo with 75 original miles!

That is true, sorry Shay. By far the one of the nicest and cleanest mini's out there, and would have it in a heartbeat if the money was there.

If money was no object I'd have an ERA in each Colour and a BAC M-30 :)
