History
Formerly Lady Driven. I was waiting to order new Camaro SS, I worked at the dealer as kid.One day went for a ride in an RMW Powered Unit set up for track. Purchased Mini fall 09 Bone Stock. , Went for ride on track in Buddy's Unit. Must be bad driver because I twisted my clutch loose in weeks. Gear box coming out means a rebuild. That started the gears of fait turning for a Flat Out to the Floor Boards Cruising Mini. Me, Transport / Big Lorry Driver, I back up more miles than most people drive forwards! Formerly Lady Driven. Lol.
