Name: Paul Wylde Cars: 1971 Stim­son Minibug Lo­ca­tion: Dud­ley, West Mid­lands

Paul has owned this un­usual Minibug for 25 years. It was re­stored four-years ago, hav­ing pre­vi­ously be­ing owned by his brother. A full nu­tand-bolt re­build, the restora­tion also in­cluded new frame­work. One of just 160 made in right­hand drive, Paul tells us there are just a hand­ful left on Bri­tish roads now. Pow­ered by a 1275cc A+ en­gine from an MG Metro, we reckon all that power and the light­weight build should equal a fun drive. This isn’t the only Mini-based kit car that Paul owns, as he’s al­most fin­ished restor­ing a 1972 Stim­son Sa­fari 6 from 1972, too.

Light­weight and pow­er­ful = fun!
