Name: Nor­man and Jesse Nel­son Car: 1961 Austin Mini Coun­try­man Lo­ca­tion: Cal­i­for­nia

Our col­lec­tion of Minis keeps grow­ing here in Shasta, Cal­i­for­nia. Here’s our Austin es­tate woody wagon, an early car with the in­ter­nal fuel tank. The orig­i­nal 850 en­gine has been up­graded to a 1275cc and we’ve gone for cus­tom vinyl graph­ics in a Hawai­ian theme. Up top there's a Re­gal roof rack and surf board, with a Tiki bar in the back and a high-end sound sys­tem in­stalled. The Mini’s even ap­peared on stage with the Beach Boys and has won many ma­jor car show awards, in­clud­ing Kool April Nites in Red­ding, CA. Thanks to Franks Up­hol­stery for the cus­tom in­te­rior and Sign A Rama for the graph­ics.

A woody makes a great surf wagon.

With the Beach Boys!
