fairly quick. I guess like many of them it tended to overheat on long Motorway runs and the only way to dissipate the heat was to turn the heater on to
full fan and open the windows!! It was generally a great car and only the arrival of a second child meant it had to go. I sold it to somebody who lived
near Staines who ran a Transport business and had a collection of Minis and Mini derivatives. Looks as though it might still be around.”
The car would now appear to have emigrated to Japan.
