    I love it when I spot my care in here! If pictures were easier to put up, I'd update them to show you what it looks like with the new Minilites on it.

    Thanks Chuck. I know, I'm very blessed to own this great car!

    I'll send you an email pic of it as it sits now, as well as a pic of my newest acquisition. I think you might like it.

    Thank you very much Chuck, for posting a few of the most recent pics I've taken of my Classic Mini. These three shots were taken over the course of a couple months last year. They were taken at my home; in San Diego at Mini Meet West; and at Asilomar State Beach (Monterey Peninsula) respectively...

    Thanks for the compliments. The car isn't as pristine as it appears, but it IS in outstanding condition, both visually and mechanically. It's still in such nice condition that a restoration won't be on the agenda anytime soon, if at all.

    On another note, I would post some photos of my new toy (the replacement for my R53), but I'm incapable of doing so anymore. I guess the site has evolved and my tech savvy hasn't kept pace. Oh well...

    Again, many thanks to Crashton for his friendship and assistance!
