Modified Mini Also Races

My father was a race car driver and could race anything on four wheels, I think that's how I learned my love for cars. Since then, I haven't looked back. This is my fifth Mini and I bought it from a man about to begin a full rebuild. But the car had no rust at all and the chassis numbers are intact on the floor! So I bought it. I just love the classic look, history, handling, sound, and usability of the car.

I enjoy the satisfaction and happiness others get when seeing and asking questions about the car. I routinely get a “thumbs up” from other drivers on the road and many want me to roll down the window, just to ask about the car. When I drive the car, I feel like I’m back in time, to the year 1967. It’s a feeling one just can’t get driving a modern day car.

In my final year of high school, we were required to undertake a final senior project that would be year-long and had to focus on a peronsal goal and interest. Some of my classmates chose to skydive, write poetry, learn guitar...I chose to do something I always wanted to do–restore a car.

I know that many purists are against the mods, still I decided to give it a personal touch and for all the modifications I have used new parts in order to preserve the originals and have the ability to return the car to its original state whenever I decide to. More than anything else, I love driving it on summer evenings through the city with very low traffic while the sun sets.

Honda Motorcycle Hooked Rider For Life

When I was twenty-four I bought my first motorcycle: a 1972 Honda CB750. This bike did two things for me. It completely sold me on the quality and absolute value of a Honda motorcycle; they are absolutely bulletproof, beautiful, and reliable. Secondly, it hooked me on riding motorcycles for life.

Putting the M5 in for a service actually led me to the 318i. The mechanic I found was a senior member of the BMW Club in Brisbane and chatting with him one day he mentioned that he had to get rid of one of his cars because he'd bought a new X5. I didn't think much about it but when I decided to buy a daily-driver to commute to work, I called him, saw the car that weekend and bought it on site.

The thing I love most about my Super Beetle, is that it fits me. I don’t just mean in a physical sense, but in a philosophical sense as well. On the physical side, I’ve built and modified everything to be just the way I want it. It feels right, like getting into your favourite pair of jeans, and I can’t think of anything else I’d rather climb into on a daily basis.

During the summer of 1953, the Como Lancia dealership ordered the Aurelia on behalf of Mr. Antonello Provasi of Lecco, a gentleman driver who intended to race it. The car was ordered as “competition type” with the same specifications of Lancia’s official vehicles in 1953. According to competition specs, it was built by Pininfarina in exactly the same way as the corsa units...

When I saw a photo of this car I knew I had to have it but knew absolutely nothing about Alfa Romeos. So what did I do? I bought it, in spite of the fact that it had been neglected, and proceeded to nickel-and-dime my way through it for about ten years, until the car just couldn't take it anymore and I enlisted some professional help.
