    I love that

    I have to say though, that in my experience, shit actually sticks to blankets. It does, however, fly off sticks and shovels.

    Lovely motor m8 I just sold my Aqua 1970 2ltr Mini (Miniworld Jan 03/ Retrocars June 04) to pay for the Corsair rebuild! She was on 6x10s after the features. Handled heaps better after that. Funnily enough, it's away to be a hillclimb car!

    i used to tinker with minis until i got into the ford scene. Had 3 years or mini world and mini mag and had to throw them away to make space for all the ford related magazines i was aquiring.

    But i kept one copy of mini world, the one with your car featured! That was my fave mini featured the whole time of buying those magazines!
    Nice one mate gorgeous car. hope your harrier is as nice

    I've got this picture in my head that you once shit the bed, and it got all over your blanket, then you tried to remove it with a stick and shovel, which made it fly, and it went all over the walls...

    I bet your missis wasn't very happy


    Lovely motor BTW... I bet it went like shit off a shovel (in Gmacs bedroom)

    Heres the only pics I can find of my old one... Need to get pics scanned at some point! The 2nd one was it stripped for a respray, but it had to go to finance the Corsair... Torque steery little devil up to 70, then fine all the way up to a GPS confirmed 140 (on a private track of course!!) Good fun all in all with 200bhp, but a nightmare to get through all those bars!!! One off +70mm carbon bonnet turned out well tho! Front end was steel.
