To me, if you own some collector cars other than classic minis, you are considered a fake mini aficionado.

Guys please read!

I am making an appeal to everyone in behalf of  our comrad ,Cole, the guy who makes videos about classic minis and calls it "Classic mini DIY" ..recently he found out that his videos were being stolen and being uploaded by someone and transfer them to his own youtube channel, kinda like what jeg did to me before, he stole my precious videos and uploaded them in his own youtube channel,aaanyway!
. We all know how Cole worked hard to make videos to help us in his own little way to cope with our classic mini problems, please if you know the person who uploaded those videos ,let us know so we can give him a warning and tell him to stop fishing someone else's videos.

you know guys, i'm really tempted to buy this 1380cc for sale in the for sale section of this forum, cost $3K,, looks it's a very good condition, but im wondering if that engine can do a cross country trip if i install it on my mini, i know it's a loud engine,based on what i see in some youtube videos of 1380. 
What i really want to have is a mini that is good in gas and a little fast, not really fast fast but it can keep up with the modern cars, i like the 998cc which justin nunes did on pat kayes light yellow clubby, that mini flies.

OMG! Did you guys saw this one post by the Classic mini parts for sale (UK) in Facebook? Somebody is complaining about someone and posted his picture and said that the guy stole parts from a 30year old guy who was dying, the person died and he stole all the parts and sold them to his customers. Oh lord!!
search it on facebook,,, they are UK based not US.

No, I don't know anything about direct pressure gauges, except that guys have reported major oil spray from the tube when it breaks, and there has been discussion about whether metal or rubber(plastic?) is better.
In any case, the line would only be under pressure while the engine is running.

Omg! i am very shocked!  did you guys saw Mytymous youtube video?? jeez i didn't know that he is very handsome and speak english very well!, he's very slang!!  i really thought all the while that he was 65years old because he told us that he was in the service for quite a while.  
But i noticed that he is S***ting on Alex, emphasizing the metric and fraction thingy hahahaha!!! and also he said that London people call Hood as bonnett !!! hahahaha...let's see if Alex will answer back..hehehe! these two guys really don't get along eversince.

But i noticed that there is just a little button that is holding the bonnet up, i don't like that idea, when he flip the button loose, the bonnett will slap in your head and kill you. Did mcgee design that bonnet hinge???(and the coffee cup holder as well), He said that a guy from MM named Dan gave it to him,,, i'm sure it's not sir Dan, because he is a purist, everything in his mini is stock except the 123 distributor.


aaaanyway!!

Oh my gash!!! i just got back from a 70mile trip with my mini, and this mini never fails to impress me, very smooth running , got it at 65mph and no hiccups(and no speeding ticket as well,aaaanyway!).  at 65mph i did not even smell fumes since the time i retard the ignition timing. And no more dieseling as well.
i therefore conclude that Dieseling is ALL about ignition timing, the rest (like hot spot etc hell were all myth.)

I don't know... I love a conspiracy as well as the next guy, but I think he's real. No one could mimic that degree of cluelessness without a pHD in psychology and an acting degree from Juilliard.

If that guy from Mesa Arizona declined my invitation for a friendly meet up, I'm sure Spank will be nice enough to meet me since he is driving along I-8 towards Wilcox Az. How hard is it to stop by Chevron for a refreshment, and see my mini???... whadaya think???

No Sir "A", i am not in any way connected to any member here, nor am i an alter ego of any person here.  As i've said before im a legitimate owner of a 1977 Leyland mini so Special originated from Belgium.

Thanks for the suggestion about the newspaper sir Michael, that may be my next possible option.

Calling Custard on him has been done for years - not a single photo proving that he has a car has ever been posted, and most pictures are stolen from the internet.

Metric is for people who can't do fractions...

Seems like a photo of your Mini showing the front page of a current newspaper is way simpler.

Wow,there is a 1969 mini cooper for sale in the for sale section that is so cheap, $1250, minimal rust with $850cc from Columbus Ohio (where it snows 400 days a year).  I know that mini is old and rare because the hinges are outside the door(not inside), (i dunno why people like minis with hinges outside/ looks funny to me)  aaaanyway!, that mini looks like in good shape (not better,not best ..that's what i meant). i think it's good for people who wants to do a Vtec conversion.... just a heads up for newbies!

Well, now im in the process of molding my custom made dashboard, and nope, it’s not one of those sissy flat mini dashboards that you see around, mine looks like a modern dashboard,  made of fiberglass. 
A mini with no dashboard looks like a golfcart, kinda like a moke.
