Ni-Minis have a thread like this on their forum so I thought it might be a fun idea to have a one here?

I was doing a wedding yesterday near Youghal and spotted a green/silver 2001 Cooper Sport reg 01 KK 4170. I got chatting to the owner who is from Kilkenny and he has had it 2 years. It's his daily driver and there's 95k up on the clock. Looked well. Must definitely have been one of the last Minis sold.

Saw a lovely 99D reg surf blue mini today at the traffic lights at whitehall while on the way to Temple street hospital to get a piece of lego removed from my sons nose,kids will be kids.I think it was a jap import mini because it had a square number plate on the back .It was a mono colour mini which is unusual.

Was there an old wine coloured one there without a roof, if there was must definetely be a second group because nobody would drive the length of the country without a roof in all that rain.

En route to Doolin last Saturday in the automatic, we were driving around Limerick and a grey Mini with a Wicklow WW reg stopped and waved.

Spotted 00-D-111011 or 00-D-with lots of 1's and 0's. Red and Silver Cooper Sportspack with BG on the Bootlid. Stopped in the outside lane beside the Coachman's Inn , Swords. Had moved into the Bus lane by the time I went back around the Airport Roundabout. Poor young lad didn't know what to do. "What's wrong?" I asked, "Don't know" , he replied, 2I hit pothole and the engine died"." Open the Bonnet" , I said and then pressed the Auto Cutoff Reset button. "Start her up", I said , which he did, and then stood there wondering what magic I had weaved. "What's that ?" he asked , and with my evil laugh I answered "it cuts power to the engine in case of a crash". "Ha" , I said to myself, these young lads have a lot to learn, as he sped off into the traffic.

Ha, ha,ha,haaaa...............

Its nice to help a Mini Owner stuck in the Sun.......
