    Thumbs up Looking for a classic mini...

    Hi guys! Im currently on the look out for a classic mini, not bothered about the age as long as its in good condition. Im looking for a project car, so i dont mind the work as long as its a good base to start from!! (i.e. engine, running gear etc)
    So, really im asking you for some help, wether you know of one lying about or a family member who has one dumped in there garden/driveway which they want rid of.
    Thanks.

    You're going to have a long and hard search mate...

    I was after one a few years ago, anything in good nick goes for insane money, and anything cheap is probably irreparably damaged, usually due to rust...

    Im after a mk1 or mk2, been looking for six months, ebay has made this type of stuff go mad, rotten mk1s and 2 seen to fetch a grand quite easily. later mk3s seem to still fetch £500, so youll have to keep searching and waiting. Nostagia has taken over im afraid and because it was the minis 50th last year thats made them even more desirable..

    Yeah I look in all the mags and online. Also on forums too but as said people are asking loads because of all the hype! I think the bottom will drop out of the Market soon though! Even scrap yards are asking rediculus money!!
