I am french and I apologize for this (despite I made a DNA analysis which stated I am 21% british...). This is not the topic but I must understand why I do like Minis so much and not 2CV. I had many Minis and today I own an Innocenti T "legno", a spruce green Moke from 1966, an IMA van and last but not least an incredible Morris Cooper MK2 which I recently bought in Portugal (She is a CKD, I mean she was sent in spares to Portugal and built there by IMA, the local subsidiary of British Leyland).

The car is incredible, not a beauty, she is not made up, but all original, all matching and without rust. Even the windows are the original ones. She was kept during years in a garage beetwen some collection sisters, cared by a mechanical paid by the owner. The only thing which I have to modify is the outside color. She should be snowberry but the previous and only owner had some baubles and he repainted the exterior in red. I also need to withdraw the Wood and P dash and the rims.

That said I retreated in a regional park in Auvergne, a vulcany region 50 kilometers south of Clermont Ferrand, I see shammys from my terrace (My wife saw a bear, I guess it's me). I have a lot of passions, to speak of me as you can check but also I play piano (the best way to become alone with singing), golf, I own an Artic Cat to make some raids in my mountains, I am fond of food, wine, finding mushrooms, auctions, geopolitics and english language writers, Scott, Kipling obviously, Maugham and Steinbeck.

Hello Harry and welcome to the MCR forum. Your introduction is very interesting, thank you. As well as Minis, we also have a 2CV!
