One wonders what the seller is trying to obscure with all the black-&-white flag photoshopping besides just the background of his house.

Wonder what Jet Motors sold it for?

It is a great looking car, but $65K?

This Mini is interesting because it has air conditioning and it is not RHD.  So, not the typical Japanese-spec Mini.   I don't think I've seen very many like this.

Wow, that is an interesting car all right.....I don't think I've ever seen an A/C and dash like that, although with a 998 it will struggle on a hot day with the A/C on.....carb'd too....

I love how he tries to dodge the vin change "it's a perfectly legit rebody"  Ha!   ;D

I guess I could be gracious and not be judgmental.  And note that everyone has different tastes, and to each his own.

But then I'd miss the opportunity to say what a complete load of crap this is.

Apparently there is a Mini Van hiding under this amorphous pink marshmallow.
