‘‘My daugh­ter had it for three months when we went over­seas. She had a wee ding go­ing up the Port Loop Rd.’’

Her sons are al­ready ar­gu­ing over who will in­herit it.

‘‘My son stud­ies the oil when he comes home. He has looked af­ter it.

‘‘My other son in Auck­land is eye­ing it up too but it is not go­ing up to Auck­land, it is a South Can­ter­bury car.’’

Rear view: The 1969 Mor­ris Mini has been rac­ing round the streets of South Can­ter­bury since 1969.
