I can't do this challenge with out giving the Mini a mention probably the greatest British Car which became an Icon of the Motoring industry.
This was the first Mini I owned I was 19 in the photo, the car taught me a lot about mechanics on one and a few years later I spent two years as a racing mechanic on
this car which was quite successful but things changed and I went on to different things.
Helping out with this one while I built my own car.
Which was a very modified 1275GT But I got married and the car went though I my wife had a standard mini that she drove about and our kids grew up with them. Eventually she bought a new car and I had the old mini saying I was going to restore it.
I started in 1997 and what stared out as a small project ended up a marathon as it took four years. The car I ended up with was a far cry from the standard one it began as with highly modified engine suspension and brakes. I owned the car for just over 20 years but sold it as I felt I would either get banned or kill myself in it. But Mini's still hold a special place for me.
The video below is my old mini being road tested on a rolling road, beware it is noisy but if you don't mind it the turn up the sound.
