Funny how this individual would come up with a self made theory that a belt that sqeal is a worn out belt,   The reason why alternators have adjusting bolts is to regain the tension when belt is loosening, it might wear a little but it doesnt mean that its totally worn out. Some people are impulsive, they always wants to buy new belt rather than adjusting the tension bolts.   Haaaay!!!  But i understand, thats human nature, people think that they're always right, and dont admit they're wrong.      Jeeeez!!!

Did you guys notice that one mini for sale in the For sale section?  the 1973 red morris mini?, all the pictures were Upside down, i think it was done on purpose.  i hope nobody buys it UNTIL he makes the picture look normal.   it's so funny!!,  i can't believe there's someone silly-er than me.  I think those pictures are useless unless there's somebody here who's willing to turn his computer screen upside down to view it......i'm sure Mr."across the Pond" guy will do it..  .hahaha
And he said the car ran well when parked,,without a gas tank....i was like,, really???! the car ran maybe 10 feet until the gas inside the fuel line and reservoir were all consumed ,,then it stopped.  // and he said that the car has paperwork but i'ts in the possession of the CHP for inspection. i was like omg!     That ad should be in the Friday funnies....lol....the owner should definitely win the "Mr. Bean" Award.

Any mini that is for sale below $5,000 will have an upside down pictures.


But kidding aside, with that price i'm sure a lot of newbies will be interested. hope it sells fast.



aaaaanyway!

Everybody thinks the classic Mini is cute but not many really want to own one or use one as a daily driver. People want creature comforts, like comfortable seats, A/C, safety features like crash-worthiness, air bags etc. Those don't fit into a tiny car, which is why they made the new MINI so much bigger. But to most people, it looks and handles just like a classic.

The big question tho is can they keep up with the then popularity of the Classic mini? When every classic mini rally they are being booo'ed  , i feel bad for them but i wished they have retained the overall appearance of the classic  and just upgraded the motor.    It's people clamor not just me

That idea of selling to Honda is about 17 years too late. Already sold completely to BMW who now are the full and clear owners.

You know, just a thought....why don't the Honda Corporation buy the rights and royalty of the Classic mini from BMC(or wherever)and build their own upgraded version. They must retain the original size and shape of the mini and upgrade the engine, and since it was proven that the Honda B16/type R engine fits the mini, they might be able to reproduce these type of engines and  come up with the idea to build a powerful fast running Classic mini with modern specs. i'm sure it will sell quick like pancakes especially if they mass produce it.

Then there was Gayside...which became "Baytona" due to political correctness.."Originally, Baytona was known as "Birchy Bay North". In 1958 the name was changed to "Gayside" to help the flow of mail delivery. The name was a play on the word "gay", which at that time meant happy, implying that Gayside was the more pleasant of the two communities. However, in 1985, due to a change in definition of the word "gay", and subsequent joking and harassment of neighbouring communities, the name of the town was, once again, changed from "Gayside" to "Baytona".[

The name "Essex" is only vulgar in your own mind. It derives from Old English Eastseaxe, meaning "East Saxons".

from Wikipedia:
"The name Essex originates in the Anglo-Saxon period of the Early Middle Ages and has its root in the Anglo-Saxon (Old English) name Eastseaxe ("East Saxons"), the eastern kingdom of the Saxons who had come from the continent and settled in Britain (cf. Middlesex, Sussex and Wessex) during the Heptarchy. Originally recorded in AD 527, Essex occupied territory to the north of the River Thames, incorporating all of what later became Middlesex (which probably included Surrey) and most of what later became Hertfordshire. Its territory was later restricted to lands east of the River Lea."
