New Member!

How do Chaps!
My names Benv, 22 from Staffordshire!
Thought I would finally join up and say hello!
I began my love affair with minis with my first car, a 1981 Austin Morris Mini..! Bought as a heap and restored it with the help of the (now ex's) father.


Unfortunately it met its end with me when i had to sell it due to doing more miles than it could handle.. Work, uni, travelling! I sold it to a lovely man and is hopefully still being loved!

When i sold that mini i put my money toward a used 53 plate Mini One D. What a beast in comparison! I spent a while trying out loads of different Minis, and found the Diesel to be more fun and have a bit more spunk than its petrol equivalents in my price range.
Thought i would simply introduce him, and warn you all for the bizzare questions, ponderments and knowledge i will bring to this forum!

I hear you there! They're like a drug! Will hopefully be getting another as a toy this year.. Was a bit hard having one as a daily, nearly 100 miles a day!

Was tempted by Shiftys latest heap! Has a charm!
