    I'm seriously flirting with purchasing a 1976 Austin Mini Mayfield.

    Does anyone here own one of these cuties and your general likes and critiques?

    Do you plan on working on the car yourself? Or do you have a trusted mechanic that knows how to work on old Mini cars?

    Owning a vintage/classic car is great. But the main drawbacks usually revolve around maintenance, repair, and finding parts.

    Also, some insurance companies won't insure a car that's is older than X. So call your insurance company and see what kind of coverage they offer for this type of car.

    But I hope you get it. The original Minis are awesome! icon_cool.gif
