Just a few pics of the mini meet between me, ryan and chas, i was seling wheels (old steels) to chas, and had to pic ryan up from station, and drive him to get his new car (744 turbo)

Sorry about the pics, as i had the cam on manual focus by mistake and didnt realise till i got home :oops:

enjoy!

Looks good fella's!

I got home about five with all the traffic! and then got pulled by police 500m from home. Routine check on car as it showed on database, that it belonged in Birmingham. Also got a quite word about doing 50 in the 30 zone outside my house

On the derv, i now just need to swap the wheels over (has to be done manually - not looking forward to doing that), remove the driving lights, remove ram air, wash, take pictures and post on eBay tomorrow night. (Therefore leaving 12th free for meet. As long as I have internet access - Note Chesh)

Swapping wheels by hand is easy - I did it in under an hour with repeated 'damn it looks good' breaks ;)

Glad you're pleased with it - but calm down dude - first you nearly stack it, now you've got pulled by the cops!! You'll end up embedded in a wall like Hugh from V3M next!

cheers

it's funny as most of these reprobates have met my minnie, and she wants a mini. but i doubt that'll happen as i'm not good at welding yet, so might have to be something french

Whatever you get, don't get something from the Pug 205, Ren 5/mk1 Clio, Citroen AX generation....they're literally scary in a crash - no structural integrity at all. What you want for her is a nice 360 with PAS ;) Even my mum can manage them!

cheers

Not sure I'd trust now tough a 66 would be in a crash either :(
