I've been thinking about buying an old Mini Pick Up and doing it up, but some people tell me they're useless and others say they are great. The only problem I have is that the people who drive them in America say they're great, those who drive them in Britain (both of them!!) say they are useless.

Are the pick ups as good on handling and performance as the normal minis, or are they a lot worse?

Also, how hard is it to find parts for them nowadays, or is it just a case of eBaying for bits?

All Minis are crap - just look at them, they're tiny. They have one of the worst crash safety profiles with modern testing.

What do you expect from a 1950's design?

If you want a mini, its a bit different to every other mini. Any mini looks good with mini lights, a slight lowering and flared arches

Actually, was gonna lift it :p:

I'm making it a point to try to never lower any car I own ever!!! Hate lowered cars, they look like sh*te to me. Plus, it would be a LOT different!



Oh, and Kingspharm, I don't care about car safety. I'm what most people politely call a stupid crazy fool for doing my more mundane stunts
