Hi

New to this forum,

I live in the North-West of England and i work as an Automotive Design Engineer

I'm 25 and married with my own house.

 My pride and joy is my 1989 Austin Mini City E 998cc (61 cubic inches)

This has just been on a Rolling Road, with an output of 50 BHP and 50 lb/ft torque

Here are some pics:

Me and "Polly"

Classic minis are the coolest.

I remember the Morecambe and Wise episode where they had a mini painted like the Starsky and Hutch car.

50hp?  It's amazing to see how far engines have came since then

Yes, but the car only weighs half a ton, and can stay on all four wheels going round corners at 60 :)
