My Campervan Build Attempt
I decided to build a campervan after the shock of the cost of buying one.
Any negative comments will go towards improving my design, so please feel
free to leave me some.

MK1 Morris Mini Minor. Restored. 1964 Model.
An old hobby of mine, This classic 1964 Mini I restored during my
apprenticeship years as a challenge. I am glad I saved this car from the
scrapheap, unaware as I was of its age and rarity at the time.
If I knew I would have taken it back to its original state. Still I am
happy with the outcome and one could argue that all the work is reversible
in that it could be re-done to make the car as it was from the factory.
I am not an expert. I do not work with cars, I work in Engineering but I
learned slowly as I went along. First MOT was a long fail list, but I went
back and spent a few months putting everything right. Took advice and won
out in the end ;-)
All the best....

How it's made: MINI Cooper
With its unmistakeable design and undiluted driving fun, the first example
of the classic Mini sparked a revolution in the car market when it entered
the fray in 1959. Then, in 2001, the new MINI emerged from the BMW Group
stable to lead the premium compact class into the new millennium. And now
MINI is poised to set new standards once again when it unveils the latest
incarnation of this iconic car on 18 November 2013.
The new MINI is one thing above all else: a typical MINI -- in its most
concentrated and contemporary form. A car built for individualists, it
whisks the legendary forms of the classic Mini from 1959 into the present
day and takes to the stage with greater presence and maturity than ever.
"The new MINI generation strikes the perfect balance between MINI heritage,
future-defining forms and innovations," says Anders Warming, Head of MINI
1974 Morris Mini - First start in seven years!
After passing its MOT in 2002, the mini went back into the garage and
hadn't turned a wheel until now.
The engine is a 1400cc MiniSport half engine kit, built by me, and has only
driven about 10 miles.
The digital dashboard is from an MG Maestro, one of several modifications
made in my misguided youth. Note that it doesn't talk... yet!
Oil is fresh, but the fuel isn't. Clearly, the there is more work to be
done to get it running right.
The MINI - A Celebration Of A Classic British Icon
The mini is, quite simply, the most popular British car ever built, and
even more importantly, has become a classic British Icon.
This programme is a true celebration of the mini in every conceivable form.
With the help of a dedicated group of mini enthusiasts, step back in time
and discover the secrets of this much loved little car's success. Hear the
story of the mini's development dating back to Issigonis' groundbreaking
design of the late 1950's, right up to BMW's brand new MINI of the 21st
Century, whilst enjoying a rare opportunity to see a whole host of mini's,
up close and personal.
They say that anybody who remembers the 1960's couldn't actually have been
there, so for anyone in need of a reminder, this trip down memory lane to
the mini's glory years will be a nostalgic treat not to be missed. From the
drawing board of Issigonis to the legend that now is the thoroughly modern
MINI, this is great British design at its brilliant best, timeless,
treasured and an inspiration.
