    Had a little look today, was a bit disapointing,
    Firstly it wasnt a pickup, just a saloon cut in two and the engine is just bolted to the ground with the mini shell placed around it, no mechanical parts or drivetrain connected at all Sad
    pretty cool stil..

    I've got some photos of it that I shall be uploading soon once I get my pc back.

    me and my dad were ponding over it...discuss what sort of suspension would be in place or whether the actual subframe would withhold it lool

    My dad found it highly amusing as he has owned many minis in the past...and tried figuring out the possibilities
