On Sunday 27th January Me (Vicki) & John from koolbadges headed down to Staffordshire to attend mini fair. Organised by the British mini club this is a massive get together of old & new minis, retailers, auto jumble and concourse cars. John has loved minis since he was 9 and my first car was a mini. John has restored/dismantled 4 classic minis and now runs a modern Mini Cooper, but this is the first event we have attended (with the exception of charity runs & meets).
The mini fair was great, so many cool cars including the tunnel clubman, found in the tunnels below long bridge and classed as the last mini to roll out of the historic plant. There where some great restoration projects and some nuts & bolts rebuilds that looked better than they ever did rolling of the production line. Also this years theme was the clubman, johns favourite style of mini and the first one he owned.
