My first car, in 1968. It started life as an ex-RAC van, but being an enthusiast I modified it constantly. It ended up as an estate with 998cc tuned engine, wide wheels and all the gear. My fondest memory of it is driving home in company with another couple of souped-up Minis after watching the Italian Job. I can still remember its number plate - MPV 618 if its still out there. Eventually I swapped it for another car. I wish I still had it - out of the many cars I have had, that Mini gave me the greatest pleasure. Mike Rose, UK
