'Max' is a 1967 Austin Mini Van, freshly imported from Finland, and in my possession for two weeks. All I have done so far is register it, fill the tires, fill the gas tank ($9), put fluid in the windshield washer bottle, and waxed it. Working on the rattles and getting parts (speedo cable broken, new door gaskets, LED lights for better visibility, magnetic signs for side panels, etc). We've already been in a car show here.

This one ...

... is a 1967 'innocenti 1001' (Italian version) rescue mini, that I've been working on with my friend Bill (in picture) for 5 years. Should be running soon (repeating mantra)

Previously I owned a mini in early 70's in Toronto, until a "friend" totaled it. It was a 1966 Green mini.

Enjoy

Mini Mania
looks like a good obsession to me! Gives you something purposeful and mindful and measureable to do!

Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. –RC Sproul

Re: Mini Mania
Next I need a (hopefully used) 6x12 enclosed tool trailer ... for a garage and optional rescue transportation.

It's a good thing you're not obsessed with 1959 Cadillacs.
