Markiss, Still no reply from that guy... PHD, I spoke with Al yesterday...He is not interested in selling any of his minis. He is interested in talking about minis and would have stayed on the phone for hours had I not convinced him I had to return to work at some point. :)

He did take my number and said he would let me know if he decides to sell and of em.

Simple recipe for Excitement:  Take 1 Classic Mini. Throw in 1590cc's of engine. Add 5 gears. A dash of 94 octane. A sprinkle of style inside and out. Toss in 1 MadMan and finally heat tires and pavement to taste. Recipe produces 1 Mini VTEC conversion and full satisfaction. Motor on!

No sweat. I would have been interested in it if I wasn't so elbow-deep into my rest-mod Mini project right now. If the seller didn't want to deal with emails, they should have listed their phone number in the ad. 
Could maybe even ask around to any Canadians on here that live in Ontario if they'd go check it out for you.

Travis, just seen this one come up for sale in Canada. Little far from you. But at least the currency conversion works in your favour. At the current conversion rate, it puts it at $25,700(USD). And it's over the 25 year old importation exemption for the US.

PHD, that is great to hear. Do you see my number in my profile or mentioned above?
Im thinking if you text me or email the details and pics once known instead of posting them here first.
Would like the info on all 3.

Thanks,

Travis

Arguing with Bill is like wrestling a greasy pig - you're never going to get ahead let alone win, and at some point you'll realise the pig is enjoying it...

Just let it all wash over you like the rest of us have for 25+ years and enjoy the ride.

So I was curious whom you meant by the ML reference. Then I thought maybe you'd be referring to one of the past/current cons around here, before my time of joining this group. And sure enough once I checked that locked topic thread, the initials match. So you're saying that I'm best friends with one of them by the looks of it. You just love to constantly include these people in topics all over this forum, don't you? Just can't leave it alone. I neither support of condone their past behaviour and feel bad for anyone that had bad dealings with them. And if they show up again, they should be exposed and dealt with in whatever manner one wishes bring to them.
I'm also one that tries to take in more positivity than negativity in life. There's more than enough negativity in this world today. Don't need to immerse myself in it. So PhatHead, try to think and act more positively. And as mothers from the good ole days would say, "If you don't have something good to say, don't say it at all." No point soiling this thread or any others with negative BS that doesn't need to be in it, and have this or other topic threads blocked too because of it. And if you insist on keeping it up, maybe you should be blocked next.

I bought my mini pick up as rolling shell for 5000 quid  in 2008.. taken me 17 years to get around to finishing it..  but it is the Cat Meow now.. with all new panels.. fresh  1275cc.. rebuild tranny  all new wiring and all new parts..   might look at www.ebay.co.uk   some pop up there from time to time.. all  in back or www.miniworld.com or www.minimag.com   . I think they only made about 47000 of  them. Dr Minis could give you the exact figure. almost all long gone. as they were used as work  trucks and put up wet..  inspection is must in person these days..  Markiss.. maybe you can ask your BFF..  ML to find you perfect pick up for $5k?/and at same time pull rabbit out a hat??

I was looking for one myself. Hard to even find a beat up one. Don't come up too often. So I went with a saloon, but still have a tugging heart string for a pick up. Maybe one day. Pick up for me, Saloon for the wife. 
There was a Leyland pickup that sold on BAT earlier this year for less than $30.
I've seen a couple of vans that were cut and fabbed into pickups also.
