Saw a BRG cooper sport with webasto sunroof in Blackrock Co.Louth on St Stephens day.It was on an english R plate.Also spotted a bini estate the same day,From the passenger side it looks ok but from the drivers side with the stupid suicide door and the thick pillars it just looks so wrong.This of course is my own personnel opinion.

I knew we'd track you down Aine.

Hopefully we'll see you out on a club run fairly soon.

Kinda related but yesterday I was talking to a local second car dealer and he showed me an Irish-reg (DZN) Morris 1300 2-door. VERY restorable car and possibly for someone who wants something bigger than a Mini but mechanically almost identical. It's in Glanworth Co. Cork about 3 miles from me.

Nice trip home this evening. 98-D Cooper stayed behind me from Liffey Vally until Turning off at the Newcastle Road. Then parked beside a 88-C Powder Blue Mini at the Celbridge 5-Aside and then flashed a 96-D Cooper just as I pulled into my estate. It was too dark to get the colours. Plenty of still using Minis for everyday use.
