About me : As with so many Mini owners I remember the Mini my father owned when I was a child. In my case it was an almond green Mini van with a rear seat conversion. The car was lost in a motor accident when we were t-boned at a crossroads by a woman driving through a red light.
It was replaced with a Simca 1000, followed (in 1977) by a Chrysler Avenger.
Mini ownership came late, after owning a couple of BMW Minis, but now totally hooked on the classics. I’m in the process of restoring Holly, an RSP Cooper, and using Noodle, a Mini 95 van with a 1275cc engine replacing the original 998cc lump, as my daily runner.
I’m now responsible, together with my alter-ego the Administrator, for the smooth running of the Renegade Minis website.
