1971 Austin MiniReview
Best "super-mini" Ever! — After driving this car, I don't ever want to go back to something modern. The character of the classics shines through the performance of the Mini. If anybody has driven a go-kart, then they'll know exactly what to expect! Whilst it needs TLC, I absolutely love it! I've never known a car to deliver so much from so little, it really gets the adrenaline pumping round the sharp corners. Trust me, if you want a car which costs little and delivers more fun than a theme park, then the Mini is your best bet.
Pros: Costs little, delivers great performance, TARDIS-like interior
Cons: Needs lots of TLC, small fuel tank

The quality depends on your ability with a wrench. Cornering is unbelievable -- 1500 lbs, wheels at the corners. It costs as much as you can afford to spend, plus 25%. Driving it is by far the most fu... Read More
