I am the current owner of DH8102 - registered in Texas as a 1974 Mini Marcos.

Although I have it for sale (current listing site is down for some reason), I would like to find out as much history on it as possible.

I have some history from about June 2006 to present.  If anyone can assist in filling in any of the car's history prior to 2006, that would be greatly appreciated.

I haven't got any 'previous' on 8102. It wasn't known to the club in around 2000, or at least the chassis number wasn't.

If you have anything from 2000 to 2006, that would be appreciated as a start to determining the rest of the car's past history.

As noted, the documentation I received with the car cover 2006 to present but nothing prior to June 2006.

The only cars I know about are on the Mini Marcos and/or Sport Scene galleries. I may have other photos of cars which are there, but if it's not there I have no information. I was membership secretary leading up to 2000 after which I handed over to Roger and Melanie so I don't have later details apart from updates from Roger and people joining via the web site or contacting me directly.

I know the prior owner I bought the car from was in the club.

It is sounding like DH8102 is one of those cars that "fell through the cracks" when it comes to tracing its history and was "whereabouts unknown" for a very long time.

I had been hoping to get sufficient history to help a prospective new owner try for an age waiver for some vintage track days.  The group he wants to participate with currently has a 1972 or older regulation.

I have old versions of the page but only going back to 2006. I understand that the car was owned by Tom Springer and then Dave Munsey. I also have some photos from Wirewheel Classic Sportscars Inc in Vero Beach, FL. some of which were previously used on the gallery. The files were stamped June 2006.

Thank you for checking your old versions.  That matches the history I already have.
