Name: Jeff Hills Car: 1980 Mini Clubman Location: Southampton
My Mini is called Mary after the lady who bought the car new, and who sold it to me in 2003. It started life as a standard 1098 Clubman, and I’ve driven her to Spain, the North of Germany, Scotland, France, Belgium, Holland, and even as far as Turin. She has never failed to get me there and back and even driven around the legendary Nürburgring several times! She gradually got to the point of needing a full restoration, and I spared no expense in having her bodywork restored to near factory fresh condition. I fitted disc brakes, a servo, a bigger engine, updated suspension, better lights, dashboard, alternator, and a more powerful engine. I also take a caravan to some events, and she has no problems towing. I’ve made many friends in the UK and on the continent as a result of owning this car, and I am looking forward to many more years of fun.
Jeff's Clubman has been all over Europe.
