Name: Jor­dan Wilkes Car: 1977 Club­man Es­tate Lo­ca­tion: Dud­ley

This is my sec­ond Mini and I bought it orig­i­nally as a rolling project. My dad and I have been restor­ing and re­pair­ing it since Jan­uary 2016; the body was in a pretty bad shape to be­gin with. The colour was in­spired by the Shelby GT500 ‘Eleanor’ from the Gone in 60 Sec­onds film. The al­loys are 6x10-inch Com­po­mo­tive wheels – a rare ’70s de­sign in-keep­ing with the car. The en­gine is a 998cc with a straight-through ex­haust and an old school Cherry Bomb back box. It’s had a lot of new parts and a lot of lo­cal re­pairs, and while it isn’t a show car, I use it reg­u­larly on the road. It looks stun­ning, sounds nice and we’ve kept the build to a re­ally high stan­dard through­out.

The colour was in­spired by Gone in 60 Sec­onds. Got to love a Cherry Bomb!
