Finally uploaded Colonel Keef's Riviera Run Show Report! There is a slight hitch with one of the video's but hopefully I will be able to sort that out later...
Spotted this amusing clip on YouTube, the 'VI Poo':
Added a few more pics of a lovely show car from the
London to Brighton
(thanks to Andy Bowman for the pics).
Finally, I made a gallery section for our resident photo expert Sian's Photoshop work - cheers Sian!
|23/05/07||I have revamped the Gallery page somewhat, and added three new pages of photo's from the The Riviera Run, and another for the London to Brighton (thanks to Billy's owner Pat for the photo's!).|
Sorry if you have been checking here for
Riviera Run updates...I was away on
holiday the week after the show, and have not had much time since.
However I have made a good start, and it looks like I should have
pictures, video's and more uploaded at some point next week...
If you happen to be the chap with the two tone Elf who gave me a spare coil when 'Old Poo' conked out on the cruise, then please get in touch and I will send you your coil back....I hope you got home OK!! Thanks very much for that, I wouldn't have got far without it. Also many thanks to Darcie who was very helpful too.
Added yet more pictures of
'The Flying Turd' at Castle Coombe!
Also added some pictures of 'Dot'...there was a bit of indecision as to whether this is classed as brown or not (probably not, officially), but it is a charming little Harvest Gold mini and brown enough in my books!
I recently came across a few pics of brown Authi Mini's, which are interesting Spanish built mini's. The pics are poor quality, but there is nothing better available...
I am going to The Riviera Run in Newquay tomorrow morning, so if any brown mini owners are around, please say hi, or give me a toot if I blaze past on the way (yeah right)...
added our first non-UK featured Mini!
Scott Pocock's lovely Australian 1275LS.
Again, this is officially not brown but it looks pretty brown to me...
Scott found this site through a post at
www.ausmini.com, check it out,
there are some ace mini's on there!
Added some new pictures of
'The Flying Turd' at Castle Coombe!
Also uploaded some pictures and a video from Old Poo's first proper day out at the classic car 'Drive it Day' at Silverstone.
Finally, like the heart warming story at the end of the news, I had a nice email from Andy Bowman about his mini:
'I was looking on the internet at other brown
Mini's and came across your site. I have a 1980 poo brown Mini that
I'm restoring - I was going to paint it blue but your site has inspired me
to keep it original !!!
Thanks Andy, a very nice mini in the making there!
|18/04/07||Added a few new photo's of 'The Floater', and added some pictures of 'The Flying Turd', a really nice example which is also pictured in the Malvern Show gallery.|
