VEHICLE STORY

I always wanted a small, fun car that's interesting, different, but also also not too pricey. It also needed to be easy-ish to work on as I have ten thumbs and too many tools, which is nothing but trouble. It's a 2000 Rover Mini in right-hand-drive that was completely stock when I bought it - A-series engine with about 40hp, AC, and an automatic transmission - but it was purchased with some major changes in mind. Now it has a tweaked Honda B18 sitting in a Mini-Tec sub-frame that puts out somewhere around a nip over 200hp at the wheels. No AC, though.
