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!
