    Tracking down my families minis

    Post  tahitipunk on Mon Jul 05, 2010 2:57 pm

    I'm have a search to see if I can find them.

    In the past my Dad has had a blue mk1 Morris Mini Cooper and a grey Clubby so I'm gonna be tracing them to see what I come up with.

    Also gonna try and find out what happened to Kermit our green mini 1000, think it was either a Mk3 or mk4.

    Be fun to see what I could find.

    Has anyone else tried finding their old minis or minis that had been owned by family members?

    I tried to trace my dads old mk1 not long ago but turns out she was written off/scrapped in the 80's sometime.
    Too bad, I would love to have brought her and restored her with my dad.

    My mum can't remember the reg of her old minis so I've got no chance of finding them =[

    Have you got any old pictures of them Laura?

    My older brother owned a Mini mayfair as his first car. He crashed it three days after passing his test... it got written off. I guess there is a slim chance it could have been bought and restored.

    my first mini a green clubby i sold in 2000 to a lady in storrington, she then sold it to another guy in storrinton and as far as thr dvla say its been un taxed since 2003 but not sorn or scrapped!

    My parents had so many minis i dont think I would have a chance in finding them....my mums old mayfair lives just down the road....

    My old white mini lives in portsmouth, my blue one (was steves) is in brighton, mini 25 Jill is in the scrap yard, the brown auto was sold and went to london and saw it on ebay the other day
