Thinking that the “Heritage Motor Center’s” publication “Mini Derivative Models 1964 to 1991” was going to be a paper-back publication of photographs & stories that I could read on my next plane trip she was kind of disappointed when a CD came in the mail. This seemingly innocuous Compact disk with it’s image of a Moke on the cover belies that which lies within…….. ‘You can’t tell a book by its cover’ nor seemingly a CD either.

An Italian-American company is claiming rights over MG Rover's flagship model in a blow to attempts by the failed British carmaker's administrators to sell off its remaining assets. Qvale Automotive - based in Italy but owned by Bruce Qvale, a San Francisco millionaire, and his family - has told the administrators it was not paid in full for the underlying design of the MG SV supercar and its Italian manufacturing base and wants it back.

For many, the demise of MG Rover did not begin last week, nor even last year, but more than 30 years ago, even before what was then the component parts of the UK car industry were nationalised under the British Leyland banner. After more than a decade of declining sales through the 1960s, characterised by outmoded production processes and old-fashioned management practices, Leyland, the conglomerate of world famous car brands such as Austin, Morris, Triumph and Rover, was nationalised in 1975.

Once upon a time when the mountains were young, import-car buyers were avant-garde. These half-mad radicals thought nothing of trading in a perfectly good De Soto Firesweep for—whoa!—an English car! They craved something quirky and agile like a Morris Minor or Hillman Minx that worked. Worked! Started every morning. Lasted decades. Sold for cheap. Of course, you nod, they wanted a BMC Mini, but engineered by Honda.

The Heritage Motor Centre (HMC) combined their historical resources with Mark Greer and Associates’ knack for cataloguing and compiled the largest assemblage of Adobe Acrobat files, for 1959 to 1969 Minis, on the face of the earth. The most amazing part of this is there were no Adobe Acrobat files at all until 1990, thus provoking the question, “Where exactly did they get these?” This mystery aside, the HMC has amassed a virtual cornucopia of technical and owner’s manuals for the Mini Saloon, Mini Cooper and Cooper S, the Mini Van, the Mini Pick-up, Countryman, Traveler, Riley Elf, Austin Seven, Australian Mini, and Woseley Hornet MKI, II and III on one super-easy to use CDROM. You might be asking yourself, “Self, why do I need all of these manuals when I only have one classic Mini?” Well, to be quite honest, apart from nostalgic reasons, and the fact that you cannot find original parts publications for a 1967 Mini Countryman Woody Wagon anywhere else, much less the original owner’s manual to a 1959 Austin Seven MKI, there might not be a reason for you to invest in this CD. However, if you want these impossible to find manuals to top off that “complete car” restoration project, or if you can’t remember the proper firing order for your Riley Elf (1, 3, 4, 2), or if you are simply a glutton for knowledge, this is the compilation for you.

At the track, Mini Mania's power and suspension upgrades proved a well-enginered package. The Stage III MINI Cooper delivered results that crushed a stock MINI Cooper S. Senior Road Test Editor Chris Walton notes, "You gotta love a front-driver that can get into the elite 70-mph-slalom club. The secret to the Mini Cooper Stage III is to drive it like you're running from the cops. You must trust that the tires will eventually regain grip -- and they do -- on the way to the next slalom cone where you gotta slide it by that one, and so on. I could really feel the limited-slip working at the exit. Where the stock MINI Cooper S hesitates before all the wheels are going the same speed in the same direction, the Stage III says 'Right now!', everything hooks up, and the car blasts out the other side."

Polyurethane MKIV Subframe Tower Bush

If you have a late model Mini (1976 on) then you probably know that the front subframe is isolated by these rubber mounts. While this makes the car quieter, it hinders handling by letting the subframe move about.
