[quote="BlackSe7en"]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.[/quote]

Were u driving a 00 Kildare reg black mini (seven?)? That was me behind u (99-D btw) :D Nice mini there mate, saw the irishminis sticker on the back. Btw ur left brake light is gone (was gonna try waving to ya about it but was afraid ud think I was a looney :P ).

Sorry, my mistake :roll:

Why did you leave the back wheels on it ?

People pay good money for 10 inch wheels for trailers.
