    hi guys and girls

    after browsing through mini world magazine and google looks like i have found my local mini owners club Razz

    I moved to the loacal area about a year ago now, after living in croydon all my life, so things are improving Smile

    i own a 1974 morris mini 1000


    this beautiful little car is the bane of my life, i am pretty sure it spends more time off the road than on it, but what can i say i love it, it has currently been off the road since october 2009 since i killed the engine after driving 150 miles a day for 4 months

    in the next 2 weeks she will be having a reconditioned 1340cc engine fitted and to keep her under control im also having a set of 7.5" disc's fitted which will be a nice improvment on the old drums... she is far from finished but to be honest i am sure i will always find something to tinker with Smile

    anyway looks like im rambling on, here a little bit of info i havent stated yet Razz

    my name in Paul, im 24 and i live in the village of Pagham
    and im a little mini mad lol!
