Beautiful sharp shots, I used to have a Triumph Spitfire in about 1979/80 which was also Brooklands Green with tan interior. After owning three "old" minis, including a couple of 1275 GTs I now have a red Cooper S Works.
really nice machine
- 1275 Midget - the "round" rear wheel arch model that they only produced for a couple of years before changing it to a "square" wheel arch once the US safety guys had "complained" (as usual) - which caused the production of the heavier "rubber bumper" models - signalling the end of the proper British sports cars.
I had the Austin Healy Sprite which was exactly the same as the Midget apart from the badges, plus it was about £50 cheap
I still have a "rubber" bumper MBG and 1500 Midget - which one day I "may" convert to the chrome bumper
I also had an old 1970 MGBGT with chrome bumpers. The advent of that thick black bumper was just crazy!
