Hi guys saw this today near my house in Cork! Anybody know who owns it? Or own it themselves? No licence plate but looks like they are using vinyl to cover it

Macker, If that was you driving a White car/van and waving frantically out of a half opened drivers side window , then that was me . Didn't know if you were just waving or some lunatic pissed off at my driving :D .

Why not try and get along to one of the (MICK's hosted) monthly meetings, thay are never too far away from Celbridge/Leixlip.

The May meeting will be held on the 3rd WEDNESDAY of the month.

Yep, that was me :lol:
I had been driving alongside you for a while beeping the horn trying to get your attention but you were somewhere else lol
I'm afraid the MICK's meetings are a bit too far for me, I only work out in Leixlip, I live in Wexford

Spotted in Ribadeselle Spain last week, this was with a few other classics, all in beautiful condition,
They don't seem to have the same issues with rust as we have over here :(

Spotted three minis on my way into work this evening,

The first was a nice light blue one on the M11 just before the Rathnew/Ashford turn off heading north, gave a beep and a wave, was in the focus but did get a wave back :D

The second was Kenny in his red mini out around Cherrywood on the M50 heading north, I think he saw me before I saw him! lol

the third was just after the Sandyford turn off on the M50 heading north aswell, a lovely dark grey Clubman traveller, gave a few beeps but don't know if the driver could hear anything

Was there a show on today or something?
