Any names yet?    Dr. Seuss would suggest Thing 1 and Thing 2.

The Innocenti on BAT was RNM at $2100.    Seems like it might have met reserve somewhere around $4K is my guess.

Doesn't mention it because he doesn't know what it is. I had never heard of an Authi till I was on this site.

 Way back when I was a teenager and dinosaurs roamed the earth and there was no Internet, I devoured any book or magazine I could find that contained information about Minis and I soaked it all up.


 I might even still remember some of it!   ;D

Thanks Mark.   You shoulda seen me about three years ago when I was looking at Minis for sale in the US and the UK at the same time.   That's when I finally decided on looking to just the UK.

Oh and I didn't provide links above to several Clubman models I found on Craigslist because they were a little more expensive.

Bruce, man, I really wish I'd met you on BaT before I got into a mini.  I'm glad I got mine, but I'm sure I would have gotten an even better deal or maybe even found my elusive clubman GT with your help.

Probably the one thing that still bugs me about F1.  All the political and shadyness.  If you brake checked a corner man up to it.  If you're flaming pissed at some one, express it.  Guess it's that NASCAR raising coming through again.

I looked a little closer at the photos of this one and discovered several clues that it appears to be an Authi, the Spanish-built Mini.  Rarer than even an Innocenti Mini.   

Not clear why the seller doesn't mention it.

I used SearchTempest.com    It is old but trustworthy and chews through the entire country's various Craigslist sites (if set up right) and eBay too.

NICE Search!   Shows really a great variety!

  What program do you use?

Local  - thought about it = needs SOME sorting to get back operational
