It's tonight - see you there
Blimey doesn't time fly and so much to do in the evenings after work, it is nearly a week since last weeks meeting. We had 8 regular members who were pleased to welcome new MCR member Everett Jones. Everett owns a 1968 Mk11 Austin Mini Cooper S, he is the second owner having purchased the car from the original owner in I believe the 80's. It is an unusual car in that two months after it was registered it was sent to Abingdon to have as many rally competition parts fitted as possible. Probably the most interesting is a second works long range fuel tank, this gives the Mini a fuel capacity of 21 gallons and Everett relates on more than one occasion concerned forecourt attendants have rushed out to see where the leak is?
The car featured in a 4 page spread in Practical Classics in 1990 and sometime during the 90's was taken off the road into storage when life's other pressures had to be attended to, you know mortgage, children, etc. In the last year or so Everett's son kept nagging him about getting the little car out of storage and recommissioned, so a short while ago it was brought home and now is roadworthy with a fresh MoT. Unfortunately Everett didn't have the car with him on the evening so I could get any snaps, but we look forward to seeing it in the coming months.
