Re: 1973 Mini Innocenti 1300 Export

However I ran compression and it's pretty good - 150, 150, 140, 145 and that's before doing anything to ...

1973 Mini Innocenti 1300 Export

Latest addition to the fleet! My partner Dan in Tulsa found this car about 5 miles from his house where it had languished in a garage for over 11 years. Prior to that it was exported to England where the steering and controls were moved to the right. Dan brought the car up to me to get it running, b...

We have just over 2 weeks, and I still have a couple of spots open. Cost is $100 and it is open to MINIs as well as classic...

Dyno Day at Prather Racing, Friday 10/5/2018 Topeka, KS

I'm setting up a play day at a great local shop to run our cars on the dyno. The fellows who run this shop are extremely experienced with old English cars and carbs. The results from our first Dyno there were incredible. Not every car benefited but those that did made significant gains and really ru...

KC All British Car Show Sun Sept 2, 2018

This is a terrific show - the venue has moved around a bit, it originally was held at the Airport Marriot, then Zona Rosa, then Aristocrat hosted it on their lot but this year they are in the midst of major construction so it's been moved to the Farmer's Market in Merriam. This is a terrific venue -...

Man, people if you want activity on the forum - start something!

Don't wait for others to do it for you...…

I find it interesting that folks with 75 posts to their credit over several years are complaining about the lack of intersting posts on the forum.
