The Mini Van — it's an amazing car, very funny to drive and easy for mainenance. With a small tuning it can be a very fast car because it's a very light car. To know more you need to try this car, it's a very good car.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Mini Van

Cons: brake

Super Fun If You Are A Decent Meachanic — braking good, drums lock up if your legs are not good abs, turns faster than the new ones, acceleration good, top speed =60mph because of gearing most fun thing on the road, needs restoration. overall the most fun thing i have ever driven or worked on.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Dan's Opinion — This was my first car. I loved it and some little *@~#*%£ stole it! Brilliant fun, really economical, easy to work on. Not very practical for big people,or passengers, or shopping, or long trips! Really good for messing about and short trips

Pros: Fits ANYWHERE! fun, cheap to run, handles as if it's on rails!

Cons: some little *@~#*%£ stole it!

Awesome Little Pick Up!! — I needed a bakkie (pick up) for my shoeing business, but couldn't afford a lot - hence the Mini Pick up!! She served me well, but struggled with the huge hills in Grahamstown when I went to Uni. Was sad to see her go.....

Pros: Parking, fuel consumption, cute-factor

Cons: Distributor in the rain, many a can of WD40 used!!!

Mini 1 Litre — A very useful small box. Trmendous handling although when it goes wrong due to short wheelbase is is horrible, fast and unexpected. Generally understeers a bit, except on slippery roundabouts or any corner taken under severe braking, which are both much more interesting.

Pros: Handling; cheeky; cheap; easy to service.

Cons: Small, slow at acceleration, seat v uncomfortable, mists up easily, very noisy inside, radio did not work, leaked badly, gets rusty very quckly.

A First Car Run About — I had a Mini Van in pale yellow. Good car fro running around in, but noisey, lacked performance, build quality and leaked water from the outside in! Drove all over in it and had some interesting times in the back of it.

Pros: Interesting rear cargo area, cost not a lot

Cons: Overall pretty rubbish.
