Classic Mini found after being locked in a garage for 36 years

Now then, where did I put the keys? Classic Mini found after being locked in a garage for 36 years
"A classic Mini Cooper car has been discovered, 36 years after it was locked away.
The family of the late Brian Smith recently found the car he had hidden away in his garage in 1976 - ten years after he bought it.
Now the classic car is up for sale and expected to fetch £12,000."

An 'undiscovered' genuine Mk1 Cooper S is worth a small fortune these days even in need of major restoration.......let me know if she will accept a low offer to take it away!

Nice! The only thing my uncle had stored away his garage was a few hundred empty bottles of Captain Morgan.

I know the Coopers fetch a fair bit now if they are good 20 to 30 grand bracket, a lot for something that only cost 500 quid new.
On that basis the current Coopers might be worth 100 grand in 35 years then
