No not tempted at all. We may go down and see it on Sunday. Also it looks as though it is to feature in one of the monthly mini magazines, so will look out for that.

My old Mini GYT648J makes the front cover of Mini Magazine (November 2019) - also an eight page article on the restoration and a double page centre fold in the magazine.

I hope you are keeping a copy for yourself.
It’s rewarding seeing something like this come to fruition - my Spitfire restoration made it into Practical Classics.
