Hello from me

Just a quick hello from me. I'm not a Mini owner - yet. I live in France, born in London but lived in Sheffield before coming to France. Phew.

I'm proposing to buy a 2005 Mini Cooper S, probably today. Just waiting for more info to arrive. My first mini was bought new in 1964. Funny how I remember the reg number - ALE 477B

I served time at University Motors in London, the MG distributors, from 1961. I moved on to the boardroom in another dealership. In 1982 I formed (with others) a computer software company serving the motor trade. That was sold in 1992 and we started again a few years later. I'm still a director and shareholder but my son runs the company now. I just potter about my small farm in the Pays De Loire district of France, with my 5 cars!

We have two gites here and allow the club members of the Westfield Sports Car Club to stay at very low rates. If anyone wants to join us then look at my website (which I'm not allowed to link to!) However, if you put the w's before frenchblat and a com after you'll find it. Just go to booking to see the prices.

So, hopefully I'll be traveling to Scotland on Wednesday to collect the Mini and then that'll be another box ticked. Only the Land Rover to go now.

Money sent, will be there in the morning. We're coming over on Wednesday and returning with it on Friday.

At 1670 miles round trip it better live up to expectations.

I'll put some photo's up when we get back.

Doesn't anyone respond to hello posts.

The other forum I use there would be dozens of replies to "a hello from me"
