“The Mini”
A very original Canadian Mk1 that I found with only 6000 miles on it. It had not been licensed since 1968 and appears to have been well stored for most of its time sitting idle. It was a Montreal car until I bought it. I did a complete frame off body and cosmetic restoration but the engine showed no wear so I simply cleaned it up and replaced seals and gaskets. My resto was completed in 1987 and since then I have driven it well every summer. It has travelled under its own steam to Mini Meets in Atlanta, Columbus, Boston, Toronto, Montreal and Bethel Maine, and has collected many awards along the way. The Mini is a permanent member of our family and still my favorite LBC.
