I've just made a new friend. He's called "Womble" - Picture added!

Womble is a 1995...

19,000 miles on the clock...

British Racing Green...



Yes, folks, it has finally happened. I have my Mini. Kitewife spotted him in the local free paper last night, I went to see him this afternoon, took a test drive, and I now have sore cheeks from all the grinning.

I'll be taking the cash round on Wednesday or Thursday, bank allowing, and driving away in the most perfect car on the planet.

Full service history, four speed box, no servos on the brakes, or the steering. Single-point injection engine, automatic choke, it is absolutely gorgeous...


Here he is! I've tweaked the picture a little - it was a 2-second exposure under street lighting, with the camera balanced on a wall.

He's really greener than that.

. I'm sure that's the best that could be done, considering the poor lighting available, but that looks black on my screen. How about some daylight pics? And at least one closeup of the wheels - those look kewl!

Hey, I only just picked it up at 18:00, then went for a drive in the country. Daylight pics tomorrow, UK time.

With the wonders of modern computer technology I can reveal that Kiteman's new Womble will look something like this: (except without the green tint to the windscreen and lights)

Hah, nice trick.

That car looks great! Nice find!
Kiteman (author)  Brennn108 years ago
That's not the real one, just a googled image.
If the car in the picture is the same model as the one you bought, then that is awesome!
Kiteman (author)  Brennn108 years ago
Yes, it's the same model - I'll post proper photos as soon as I pick it up.
