Blue Cooper (mostly) British car history

A little bit about myself and my Mini history. Car history started in 1998 with a 998cc Metro. First Mini was next, a 1991 Mini Studio 2 (998cc), I then bought a 1986 998cc Mayfair off a friend, stripped, welded, repaired and rebuilt it, spayed it red with a white roof and stripes then ran it for a while then parked it in the parent's garden with its Studio 2 brother. Car history then went '73 Midget (still in the parent's garden!), 67 Minor 1000, *cough*1999 fiat punto*cough*, 2001 Mini One (that is now in my garden, but not with the other minis, they both went to another home) then my current car 2009 Diesel Cooper Clubman. This Clubman is a world of difference from my first mini but I would still love to have another one, and I will when I get around to selling my One and Midget… 1275GT is on the bucket list.

Sadly I don't have any digital images of my first Minis and somewhere have one of my One, none of my Clubman yet though.

Hi and welcome to Mini2!

I still have a classic Mini tucked away in the garage and my brother has just bought a 1275GT restoration project!
