Great stuff Darran and good to see the club back in the pages of IVS. I had a Cork vintage club on to me this morning who want to feature Mini 60 at their show in July and want to give the IMOC a plug in Irish Vintage Scene as the club promoting Mini 60 at their show. I've passed on the details to A...

I was impressed with the Smooth-a-Ride system supplied by Mini Sport when trying out ZakGT's and Darran's Mpi's (13 and 12 inch set-ups) in terms of driving comfort as basically the cones are much thicker so there's more rubber absorbing road bumps. I fitted it to my own '98 on 12s and while it was ...

Having spoken to a couple of people who attended yesterday's meeting, there was a great turnout and a very positive vibe about future events. Looking forward to seeing loads of Minis on the roads of Munster this season.

It may not be as bad as you think. It was clearly damaged at some point in the UK and the insurance company may have decided that it was cheaper to write it off than pay for the repairs. It depends if there was much structural damage done to the car. A motor insurance assessor (google one in your ar...

If you're new to Minis, be sure to have the car checked out as there are a lot of Minis out there with incorrect log books to make them appear older to dodge VRT, NCT, tax etc. An accident with a falsely registered Mini will void any insurance, no matter how cheap you got it. Also, every Mini rusts ...

I think a nice Mk3 early 70's Mini looks great. Take Eamospud's '72 850, a super little car that has had twin carbs and a bigger exhaust fitted and it goes like stink. Nothing that can't be put back to standard if required.

Each to their own I know but 6222 ZC is definitely a ringer.

Whats the opinion on this one?


6222ZC was probably scrapped a long time ago. The rear seat belt fittings are definitely from a much newer car.

All Mpi's suffered diff problems. One of mine blew itself and the diff housing apart years ago. Fitting a 4-pin diff is a must.

Second that.

Grand relaxed weekend, great facilities, and loads of cuppas to be scrounged.

Most of us could possibly be diagnosed with Campers Lung after Friday night but worth it to list to DJ Maloney's tunes (not).

Last year's decision by photobucket to charge users to post their images has now been reversed. Check your old posts on this forum. The photos are live again. Great news particularly for those of us who have created build threads in the Projects section. https://www.bizjournals.com/denver/news/2018/...
