My mate phones the other night and says i have got something for , Remember that mini marcos i got of you in the 70s , well i found a letter, pricelist and a couple of photo's that D & H sent to me !!! ,OK lets go back to 1976 , there is a mini marcos advertised in the Sheffield star for sale but damaged , So i phone the number and talked to the owner , he says it is smashed on the front and he will take £140 for it , advertised for £150 , OK ill come and take a look , So borrows a trailer and heads for Gleadless , Suburb of Sheffield ,He's a Student and needs the money , Looking over the car , ill give £130 now and take it away , deal done , So off i goes back to my dad's and parks it on is drive , Its there for a few months and i decide to break it for parts , It was built from a 1071Cooper S ( worth a fortune now ), the engine went to some grasstracking lads from Lincs £200, Front subframe with 7.5 disc went to some in bradford £40 Bucket seats sold but cannot remember the price , again clocks sold and the wheels were JAP £40 , i think it made about £350 , but i was left with the shell and back subframe  , My mate say's i will buy it from you !!! He was a joiner and i said if i buy the front and back doors for my house will you fit them, YES , so he ends up the mini marcos , he sold it a couple of years later without doing anything with it to some one in Worksop , that is the last we heard of it , cannot remember the registration number , it was a late 60s car  Photo's of the girl is from from D & H
