Ja­son Parker bought his Mini­van six years ago, as a project. ‘I’ve just fin­ished a com­plete restora­tion of the car and will be tak­ing it to the In­ter­na­tional Mini Meet in Ire­land later this month for one of its first out­ings. I’ve done a huge amount to it. As well as pan­els, paint and trim I’ve fit­ted an MG Metro Turbo 1275 en­gine. The donor car also pro­vided a lim­ited-slip diff. Up front there are disc brakes with four-pot calipers, an elec­tric fuel pump, a full sports ex­haust and in the cabin there are Metro seats. Apart from the en­gine, all of the me­chan­i­cals are new – it’s great that so much stuff is avail­able. Next I need to re­store the pick-up I bought four years ago.’
