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.

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....
