Bugger, I do hope you're totally okay Ian.

That was a damn fine car, that you were rightly very proud of. I do hope that theres enough recoverable for it to atleast rise in sprit.

I am determined to get back on the road in a Mini.
It was a bloody good car in its latest form. I felt I had discovered the secret to great Mini motoring, plenty of soundproofing, an engine built by the best in the business and mated to the right gearing for that 60's/70's Mini experience.
I am just waiting for the muscular aches to kick in tomorrow.
I wish it to be recorded that Tim and Louise were fantastic in my hour of need and were very supportive and encouraging about the future. With Tim's unrivalled knowledge I shall soon be back on the road in an ADO20 as most of the good bits are salvageble.

I lost grip on a newly laid road surface and flew through a wire fence, across a short concrete apron and then into a gravel car park which failed to stop me. I ended up in a fence by a field containing south American llamas. The windscreen shattered into a million pieces and think if it hadn't been for my spectacles I think I might have suffered some serious eye injuries.

My therapy was recieving 2 mini mags whilst in intensive care after my mini accident. You have plenty of time to read all the classifieds when your stuck in bed.

Hi Ian,

That looks like Sands' yard at Brumstead, am I correct?

I am sorry to hear about and see the mini. Glad to hear that you have survived, again. Do you recall being mini-less before, just about when the Hodders joined NMOC for the first time? I hope we don't always have this effect on you.

I have just joined the ranks of mini owners once again with a 1993 Rio.

If I can be of any help let me know.

Gumball and I are already hatching plans to get back on the road, and it will be quicker than last time.
