    Sweet! Looks a lot like the one my friend on my first tour in West Germany had, but his had 4" wide wheel flares and 8" wide beautifull aluminum 12 spoke wheels that wore tires that looked like refugees from Willow Springs!

    A nice touch from this old Mini is the 'DISCS' sticker on the back, which were popular with the British 'ricers' of that era.

    The claim was that a driver behind, who probably only had drum brakes, needed to know not to follow too close since the Mini might stop quicker than he could - of course, the real reason was because the Mini driver wanted to show off that he had discs!

    Over here we have "Caution Baby Aboard"....

    That's just so you know the driver could really be on edge and might make sudden irrational maneuvers...:D
