Bit of a cheat but a spot nonetheless. At cars and coffee yesterday, a lovely clean sportpack owned by a very nice German chap who I got chatting to.

Saw a lovely blue mini in Spiddal yesterday. Roof rack and signs all over it. Anyone on here?
Great weather for it.

Spotted two minis yesterday on my way in to work, both on the M11,
First one was heading south on a trailer a white one,
Second was an orange mini, beeped as I passed but don't think it was heard as I didn't even get that confused look that you get when you beep at a mini and wave from a different type of car :D

Greetings! I am a new member here, I own a 1978 Mini Pickup that was imported into the States from England sometime after a 2004 restoration was performed by P&L Mini's in England.

I purchased the Truck from a fellow in Texas and I think I am the 3rd owner of it here in the States.

I was Touring the North from 6 June to 11 June and spotted this beauty scooting along in Bushmills on 9 June around 1400.

I almost missed it!!
Image

Then on 11 June around the same time I stopped for Petrol off the M1 about 20km North of Dublin and saw this beaut.

The back window decal led me here.

This trip was my first Euro trip and I chose Ireland (and the North of Ireland on purpose) we are already planning another trip at the same time next year.

Hopefully members here recognize their cars. The black one sounded really nice running up the road.

Jim

Threw an edit in and want to thank Photobucket for ruining all the internet forums that do not host their own photos.

I hoped a member here would see their car. Looks like we are not coming back to Ireland next spring, but plan on going again in spring of 2019.

If it was on the N11 bit it could have been me.

This mini has been around Medjugorje for some years. Had a run in it last week. It belongs to Luka Vasilj who works in the Burrito Restaurant.
