1989 Rover - Austin Mini THIRTY 998cc petrol from UK and Ireland
Mini Thirty - This Car is an Absolute Gem!
Very Little - Austin-Rover/British Leyland/BMC often made lemons/friday-afternoon cars, this is much documented! However, this baby is the opposite, in contrast to my previous Austin Metro (with the same 1.0 A+ engine), this car drives like a dream. Had to have remedial work on windscreen scuttle and new doors due to usual mini rusting!
The Best Mini I have owned (and I've had seven over the years!). The fastest 1000 I've ever driven (and it's COMPLETELY STANDARD!), this car never misses a beat.
Even if it has been stood dormant in my garage for six months, it fires straight up and half a mile up the road doesn't even need any choke!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
