Default Red Mini

So i now have 3 minis. Here is my new daily driver i picked up about 2 months ago. I helped a friend put the clutch, flywheel and some other things to get a new engine in this car at the end of last year. He finally got it all finished up and decided it wasnt something he really wanted to keep since he has a viper and he runs a car dealer and can drive lots of other cool cars. I sold my E36 and picked this up from him for fairly cheap. It has a few dings and i have fixed and replaced a number of things to make is a much better daily such as motor mounts new shift knob corner lights etc...

These are just photos of the first day i got it:

It is a bare bones, Base model. not even cruise. and i am in love with this thing.

At first i said i would not mod this car even the slightest since Buddy is such an extreme build. However, i had a few things laying around the garage and Aaron and Drew have thrown some things my way. So i decided to mod it but keep it simple, cheap, and fun.
