1963 Mini and taken in '73
Fullrace 1150cc motor, competition clutch, '59 cone suspension, straight cut gears, LCB exhaust, carbs through the dash, etc.

Built as a project cars with dad in the year leading up to birthday and test.

Passed and was advised 'well driven, don't forget if changing gear and giving hand signals someone still needs to steer....' parting comments - 'take care son - you're mum needs to be proud and not collecting you from a hospital' Bugger told my mother the same...
Jaguar F-Type 3.0 Supercharged V6 S, Stratus Grey, LSD, Active Exhaust, CF wheels, Performance brakes, Sports seats and mods ongoing

It was gutless and miserable to drive even for a 17 year old.
It belonged to my driving instructor who was also miserable. Judging from the way he reigned in my more ambitious driving moments, I suspect he was pretty gutless too :D

Apart from the 35is the GTA was the only new car I’ve ever had. Loved the looks, turbo body kit and it had AP 4 pot calipers as standard, 1.3, evrything the turbo had bar the actual turbo! The A series responded well to tuning, you could get it to fly....relatively.... :lol:
