Some manufacturers have an undeserved bad reputation.

Lucas is NOT one of them.

If Lucas didn't invent the melted wire harness in spite of specified fusing, they perfected it.

I'm thinking Mr. Short owns an older MG or Jag...or works on them.

The Minis look great, Miles. It won't be long before the weather is good enough to go out for a drive in yours.

Where can the T-shirt be ordered from? Love it! Nice mini, BTW - far better than the Austin America which came later.

You do know what most classic Mini owners think about the new Mini , dont you? ......



:mrgreen:
I guess I would too if I was a classic mini owner. I am enjoying my German model however, runs great and handles very well. My classic MG Midget stays in the garage most all of the time.
