Wow, this thread has a few great reminders of the reason I don't spend much time on this forum any more.

Doing some research. seems Keenan Motors still has copy of the franchise with British Leyland and MOKE name.  One of the original Berry brother / owners is still alive in PA

People that think that a LH drive Mini is perfectly fine probably think there is no problem with this Mini

I was trying to be generous. Ya think being compared to "Tony" would have an effect. Judging by his "pulley" posting, I guess not.

Apparently not....

We get your opinion about right and vs left hand Minis. You are entirely entitled to your opinion. However, If that's the only thing you can contribute to the discussions here, it gets tiresome and detracts from the apparent worth of what you do have to contribute.

As a kid we had a 6 foot King snake we kept in the barn to control mice. We could catch him any time we wanted to.
Wrap that around your arm and walk into the ice cream store. You get to go to the head of the line if you can get
the lady to serve you. Steve (CTR)

PS I'm sorry if I'm messing with your tread.

Is there any chance you could get a dog a wife or a pet snake? It's clear just like our friend Tony you must be
starving for attention. I do feel sorry for you if that helps. Steve (CTR)
