Name: Ben­jamin Myl­lyuoma Cars: 1975 1000 Lo­ca­tion: Fin­land

Orig­i­nally a 1975 1000 that had been stand­ing for 13 years, Ben­jamin has now had this Mini for 10 years. Dur­ing that time, he has lav­ished over 4,000 hours of work on it, in­clud­ing five re­builds, a one-off steel body kit, plus red, blue, two dif­fer­ent types of grey and the cur­rent Min­ion-themed body colours, with air brush work by Johnny Sjöblom. There’s even a match­ing Mini trailer! In­side, the in­te­rior has been re­built seven times, as Ben­jamin com­petes in sound-offs. He’s had plenty of suc­cess too, with 100 tro­phies won. And there are more changes un­der the bon­net, which houses a 1.3-litre 16-valve engine from a Suzuki. Per­fect for all the ex­tra weight this Mini is car­ry­ing around!

This strik­ing Min­ion­themed 1000 even has a match­ing trailer!

Re­built in­te­rior.
