Yes I do too I am malsal on BaT and elsewhere i just chose Jimini II here as I owned one (Moke kit car) at the time.
I had figured you were one and the same through the postings here with Mini Dave.
There is actually a 3rd dr mini in Australia who used to post frequently on MM before it went downhill with the troll.

Pretty sure Iíve been using this username since the dawn of the internet. 

MK1 prices are nuts.  Seems to be spilling over to the non cooper/s cars.

Watch for it!

My friend Russ Foust has listed his wild, crazy Acura V-6 powered Mini Clubman on BaT, don't know when it will go live but it should be an interesting auction!

It's the car with the WWII look, army green with the "fighter style teeth" on the front fenders and such.....

Quite a Mini drought over at BaT.  No classic Mini auctions listed for 3 weeks or more.

 I donít think that has happened before.  Has the intense scrutiny on recent Mini auctions scared some sellers away?

I wish they wouldn't do them in groups....one here, one there would be better I think.

They had quite a run on MINI GP's tho.....

Yeah, he says he's having all sorts of trepidations about selling it. This was a spared no expense build, so I don't blame him.....I drove it before he added the boost and it was a freaking BEAST with 250 hp, I can't even imagine what it's like with twice that, the back end got loose in 3rd gear at 45 mph in the video at Lake Garnett.

I thought he was going to post a few laps at Heartland too......

Undoubtedly the wildest Mini build I have seen on BaT.

On another note I read on Jalopnik I think a 1980 Ford F250 long bed single cab 4x4 with only 76 miles on it just sold recently for $97,000 !!!
Looking through the Ford truck sales another 78 Ford Ranger 4x4 with 1,000 miles sold for $95,500 !!!
I somewhat understand the rare exotics but basic Ford trucks for nearly or possibly more than $100k with fees and transportation what the heck are these buyers thinking or am I missing something.

If you think thatís crazy, take a look at this auction for a bunch of Corgi model cars.  I had many of these when I was a kid, so the nostalgia is strong. 

Itís up to $7,000 so far...

Bid is $7,888 right now for 202 pieces so an average of $39.00 per piece with two days to go.
Unless you want a varied collection i am not sure this is the best way to buy a collection.

Sold for $11,000.  A fair price I think for a nice 998 Mini.

Yep, I think that's the market for a decent 998.....

After a flurry of activity to start it off, Russ' Mini seems to have quieted down now. It still has a long ways to go so we'll see what happens.

I agree a fair price but based on the lack of rust I thought it may have done a little more.
If someone has owned their Mini for quite a few years as this seller had they can be bought for a reasonable price unlike if someone had purchased this car recently at a substantially higher price and done all the work they would want the $20k back they had spent and it would be a r n m.

There is a super nice Clubman Estate on BaT right now.

Here is the well-presented Clubman Estate on BaT.  Very clean.  It even has a body-colored painted gas tank!

I wonder how it will do with the BaT crowd who are used to seeing Minis that are regular Mini-shaped?

SLGGR sold for $30K, says it's going to Malibu and run Mulholland road. I don't know how he's going to get it licensed - maybe he's a dealer and can run it on D plates?

Thereís now a very nice early 1960 Mini-Minor on BaT.  Interesting history and a great seller.  Dave and I met Mike during the 2016 Mini Meet.  Got a personal tour of his museum too.
