After spending about 3 weeks searching all over the internet for that “perfect” car, I finally found one. A 1988 Austin Mini “Mary Quant Designer” Limited Edition in Devon, so only about 2oo miles away!!
A few tense hours on Ebay later, I had finally bought my first car, something which didn’t sink in for at least a few days.
After ringing everyone I could possibly think of who might care, I had finally calmed down enough to look properly at what I had bought, which wasn’t too bad thankfully!
Bad paint and a fair bit of surface rust could all be fixed quite easily, couldn’t it?
