  1. Guest - Welcome to the new Motoring Alliance Site! Steve, MCS02 and I were up until the early hours this morning working to get it done... as you can see it took us a bit longer than expected to get Phase 1 up and running. We are not 100% there.. its a journey. For site updates, "How Do I" and feedback please use the Announcements, How Do I, Feedback Forum (Links below). Like building a car.... its never done... and thanks for your patience

    Any ideas?

    Know anything - yes it's disgustingly ugly.

    Ideas - yes destroy it and whip the owner with a cat o nine tails.

    I'd like to see more picks of it before throwing it under the bus..
    All the track guys have been wanting wider/fuller fenders for better aero, well here ya go.. Hard to tell with the glare what the side skirts really look like.. As long as the bumpers look good, I may like it.. Apparently I'm alone in my thinking so far..

    You are not alone in your thinking. I too want to see more before sending it off a crusher.

    The massive wheels don't do anything for me.

    The odd wing...ehh. Maybe it is the angle of the picture, but it just looks wrong.

    I do like the flared fenders and was hoping to see more. The difficulty is in making the bumpers look right.

    For me it is more exploratory for some ideas. I'm not about to commission a replica.

    Is that an exhaust pipe shooting out in front of the rear wheel?

    Don't know if this makes sense to any one else but me....but...

    To me, as a Mini, it's sacrilegious, and just not good, but I too would like to see more, may just be an "interesting looking car"

    More pics please. I'm not ready to kill it with fire until I actually see it.

    Just how small do you have to be "down below" to need that much reassurance to your manhood?

    I mean, it's like having a sun strip with "I have issues" written on it......

    Remember the term 'YOUIFY", a MINI/Mini slogan I think it was over these past years.

    Need more pictures, different angles, then I will see if I like it, hate it, barf on it. :devil:

    Don't be so, so judgmental until you have all the facts.

    One thing I have always liked are side pipes molded into the bodywork. :)

    Could be a showcar, nothing spared to win!

    Ok here is the gawd awful purple Mini you all so want to see. It's a Euro hoopdie from a 2010 Menton auto show.

    Google search is you friend: "tony design"

    Thanks Dave. For some odd reason my own searching skill failed.

    I have seen more...it can now be burnt with fire. Some things should be left unseen.

    What I want to know is ......where is the "design"?

    Every one of these so called show cars follows the same pattern, slam it to the gound, use the biggest wheels you can find, lots of weird lighting and lambo doors and a super loud stereo - done!

    If you're going to do something special, do something special, not the same things every one else has done to every Honda out there, only in a different color.
