Austin Mini 1000

Austin Mini 1000

I purchased this car when I was just 16 years old. I’ve always wanted a Mini since I was young and when I saw this one, sat outside someone’s house, and although it looked a bit tired, I went and knocked on the door and asked if it was okay to have a look around it. The next thing I knew I’d phoned my dad asking if he could come and help me to get it home! I washed it down the second I got it back to find it was really in a rather good condition.

Austin Mini 1000 I have since turned 17 and passed my test, and now it’s my daily driver. I’ve loved every second of owning and driving this car. It turns heads wherever I go and the little kids all love it too! I’m a member of Thanet Classic Car Club too, which is good fun. I go to all the monthly meets with the other classics.

 

Austin Mini 1000 04Since owning the car I’ve replaced the whole exhaust system and redone the entire interior, as well as converting the front drum brakes to discs, so it stops a lot better!
