At one time that was the place to buy VW parts from. As I recall most were from Mexico & Brazil. I bought many a Bug part there too.

At one point in time, you could buy a 1962 Lotus Elite Kit from the Sears Catalog!
Body, chassis, wiring kit, engine & transmission, the whole thing.
All you had to do was assemble it.
Cost was around $1,200.00.

I always wondered how much it cost to print, ship all the catalogs that they did (JC Whitney).

Was out and about this morning and saw this on the freeway.

Saw this today......-imageuploadedbytapatalk1307722968.011205.jpg

Doesn't the rear bumper look MINIesk?

And is that a "Justa" rear wing?

Hell.... even the rear tail lights look similar. And are those MINI wheel arch lights?

Talking

So, we have skulls and crossbones, dragons, ye olde English lettering, a racing wing, an exhaust, and wheels... All on a dusty gold Honda Accord?

Tell me it is Multiple Personality Disorder. A legally blind person?

Please be something other than no comprehension of taste whatsoever... Please...

I don't want one, but for some reason, the 500 is growing on me way faster then the Coupe is. So, that is a good example of why having the MINI line grow, is a good thing.

Yeah, the first couple I took kept getting the wipers in the pic. So I turned off the wipers and ended up with a rain splattered shot.

Actually there is a sort of arty look about that snap.
