retrofication or restoration?

OK, so I'll admit that I'm a bit torn when it comes to retrofying Minis. On one hand it makes sense to preserve and restore Minis as standard where possible but, if an owner is going to modify a Mini anyway, then it's nice if they pay homage to early Minis. And, of course, much of Mini's popularity over the years is thanks to the fact that they are so easy to customise and personalise. Inside we take a look at a 1980s Mini in Japan, where retrofying later Minis has been popular for decades, and a fab Woody-styled Clubman Estate. Whatever your preference, there are certainly some wonderful Minis to amaze and inspire you in this issue. If, like me, you have been hunkered down in a garage getting your…

two for joy

This 1989 Rover Mini, with retro tweaks, was the first Mini in Mr Matsuki’s life. He bought it with the main retro mods, such as the Mk1 grille and oval rear light lenses, already fitted but he has enjoyed making further modifications himself. “When I got my driving license I was looking for a Nissan Skyline. My friend introduced me to the Mini agent who had the part-exchanged Nissan Skyline that I bought. When I started driving the Skyline I regretted not having a Mini,” he says. He was interested in go-kart racing and got his fix of cheeky, small vehicle driving that way instead. “One of the staff of my equipment company was always telling me about the fascinating points of Minis. He is a super Mini freak and I was…

I bought her from a friend of the family who had owned her from new. Apart from a wooden dash and RC40 exhaust, which were both added by myself, the car is completely standard and original. The most recent photo was taken during the first lockdown and shows our daughter Isabella, aged six, giving her a final wash in readiness for the MOT which the Mini passed first time. The garage photo was taken in front of the derelict Regal Garage site in Staple Hill, Bristol, where she was bought new…
