Indeed it is! Built in NZ in 1979. Local content included the (still lovely) pile carpets.

Real German minis at my local Sainsburys. There was also a red mini with them which I didn't manage to get a photo of.

There must be some sort of convention going on Zac.. I saw 3 mini's today on the M25 near Cobham, I was on my way to Birmingham area and then saw them again near Birmingham coming the other way on the carriageway, same cars , but had been joined by 2 more and little Elf or Hornet was with them too :P

Grant, it was nice to finally meet you last weekend at the Ace Cafe.
You don’t disappoint. :)
My dear old Mum would be so pleased that you think I’m posh.
She put so much effort into making me and my siblings the best we could be.
I’m not actually posh, I’m just tall. It’s an easy mistake to make.
