In the meantime a new Mini has popped up on BaT. Since it's more modern than recent Minis I wonder how it will do? https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1997-rover-mini/
Quote from: BruceK on September 08, 2022, 10:12:45 AMA very nice restored English Moke is now on offer. Big money will be paid for this one I think. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1968-austin-mini-moke-4/
Quote from: BruceK on September 14, 2022, 12:53:16 PMAnd now a Mk I Cooper is on BaT. I know this car, and I knew the owner too. Unfortunately he passed about 6 years ago and the subsequent owner is now selling it. This car was a vintage racer before it was recommissioned for road use. I love everything about it other than the sunroof. This is now the second Mini appearing on BaT whose owners I knew, but who have since passed away. Both cars were genuine 1960s Coopers. Really does remind me that after surviving this long, these cars will go on and on until the next caretaker takes over. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1963-morris-mini-cooper-3/

Quote from: BruceK on September 11, 2022, 02:15:38 PMA very nice light gray 998 Mini is now on BaT. Lots of money spent on the interior, but somehow no tachometer. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1989-rover-mini-city/
Quote from: BruceK on September 13, 2022, 03:55:37 PMOne Mini auction completes, and another one is started within the hour. Here's the latest. The 13 inch wheels and sports pack flares seem to attract a lot of attention – most of it seems typically to be from non-Mini people - so I think this will do well. It's a Sprite and not a real Cooper. But that shouldn't matter to most bidders. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1993-rover-mini-1-3/
Quote from: MiniDave on September 21, 2022, 07:24:46 AMThat was a decent deal for that car.There have been several more Minis show up on BaT this week too.....
Quote from: BruceK on September 17, 2022, 02:43:40 PMA Clubman estate is now on BaT in the very 1970s shade of brown. Looks nice. 1250cc? https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1978-leyland-clubman-estate/

Early regular production Mk VI Rover Mini Cooper. It's said to be a JDM model but it is LHD and has no air conditioning. So, that's a bit different. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1991-rover-mini-cooper-4/
Quote from: BruceK on September 21, 2022, 01:50:44 PMAnd here's another one. A early Mini 850. And it looks to be in very nice condition. All those commenters on BaT complaining they haven't been seeing anything original should be jumping on this one, right?https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1961-morris-mini-minor-deluxe-2/
Quote from: MiniDave on September 29, 2022, 05:38:07 AM...more than twice as much as the big established auction houses.No wonder they can be so picky about the cars they list for sale.
