1991 Rover - Austin Mini Cooper 1.3 (1.3) Carb from UK and Ireland
The most fun you can have with your trousers on. And probably more fun than with none on..
Front indicators stopped working.
Rear brake lights stopped working.
Bonnet catch stopped catching.
Passenger door lock jammed.
Front end rotted through despite regular maintenance.
Gearbox starting to crunch on 1st to 2nd changes.
So far the engine has been 100% reliable, but is beginning to run on. Has always started first time.
Not the fastest machine in the world, but has pleasant usable acceleration and handles like nothing on this earth.
Seriously good looking, fun packed car with a very friendly community to back it up.
Parts cheap and plentiful.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
