This photo pretty much sums up the carnage which is that Mini. What an absolutely steaming pile of excrement. 

"at 42 year old it is not perfect"

Amen.

Let's play: Would you rather.

I'll go first. 

Would you rather own a mini clubman estate that might need some sympathetic owner to give it love, or a mini saloon, that definately is going to need months of work.

I'd rather buy the silver saloon as it's not been buggered around with. Yes, it's a full resto project, but it's not been customised with a hammer and wob from end to end, unlike the clubman. 

The poor clubman deserves a final journey sooner rather than later.

MOT'd and working phase 1 2.0 306 cabriolet with a hardtop and spare engine, £750.  That's a frigging bargain!

May be an image of car and road

Absolute bargain. Yellow too. World needs more yellow cars to brighten up the day. 

 

The MOT history may need investigating, couple of previous dangerous fails, would be interesting to see the quality of how it was tickled with a welder.

It's all the money, but this looks incredible

I don't even hate the wheels as much as I should

Shame it's had the wrong carpet put in, but that's easily solved. This is what my old one should have looked like and I'm getting quite nostalgic

My brother and I, when in our early teens, must have bought 20 or so of these and Norman Nippy's (what a great name!) over the course of 18 months or so.

We used to break them up and advertise the parts in Motorcycle Weekly using their free ads, and sold loads of parts back then. Enough profit to ensure I could smoke Embassy tabs and not No 10 or Sovereign.

Your earnings went up in smoke?

This looks nice, even if the title isn't exactly correct.

Eh?

Oh...


To aid our wedding business we had the mini professionally wrapped to mimic Mr Bean's iconic mini from the 80's television series and the vehicle is currently registered with a private plate (BBE4N). This is not included with the sale but is available for a small additional fee. [/Quote]

WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS

If it's a good quality wrap, in theory it should be removable without destroying the paint, with a bit of heat and a lot of care.

However, if what I've seen elsewhere in the wedding industry is anything to go by, it'll have been done on the cheap with low quality material with adhesive that's inappropriate for the job, and the paint will slough off like flesh from a leper upon its removal.

Vauxhall is selling off some of their heritage fleet.  Not sure what the little box is on the dash of this tidy little number, alarm?

I'm always saddened when I see cars being sold from manufacturer's own collections: I saw some of the Citroens at Aulnay-sous-Bois before they were sold at the Centenary Event.
