First day driving her to work

Just a few pics of how she looks sitting outside the office.  Oh and today I had an interesting experience.  Drove the kids to school and as I was driving the girls something sounded really bad from the front passenger side.  So bad that I ended up pulling over to investigate.  Looked under the wheel well and saw metal.  What could that be?  Wait for was the antenna!  It had dropped so far that it had caught itself on the front tire and was making all sorts of noise.  Pushed it up and all was good in the world again.

Starting a new journey

Welcome my 1991 Mini Cooper from Japan!  This is BRG (British Racing Green) with a white roof, sitting on 10" steel wheels that have been painted cream.  Something that sets Japanese minis apart from almost all other minis is the fact it has AC!  Also, the front wing mounted mirrors are a dead giveaway that it is from Japan.  This car has the 1275cc motor and was the last year of the carburetor before it went to an SPI motor.  It runs and drives fantastic!  The dash has been converted to an earlier style dash (center speedo) which I prefer.  I will post up some better photos later today or if not today, next week.  Now the journey of getting it registered here in the US begins!  Enjoy!
