So a while ago a mate contacted me regarding a shoot of my MINI for the magazine he regularly shoots for. As it's about youngtimers, i.e. not-yet-classics that are all shiny and fully stock, I thought he was joking and referred him to some guy with a fully stock R53 with like 25k miles on it. Turns out he was dead serious, and they were looking for someone who didn't keep their future classic stock. Well, just the thing for my bodged R50 than! 😂
So we did the shoot and I was interviewed, and a couple days ago I received the cover for this months issue:
Oh man, this is cracking me up... I imagine all those guys polishing their hubcaps and collecting owners manuals having a stroke when this comes through their mailboxes.
