Product Description

Review

"The content is informative, yet easy to read and there's plenty of colour pictures. I'd advise anyone seriously considering buying a Mini to get hold of a copy of this book first." Tiscali.co.uk"

About the Author

With a Mini being a permanent feature in the family for over 20 years, not to mention the dozens that passed through the doors of his garage during that time, the author has experienced the highs and lows of owning, repairing and restoring these iconic little cars. A move away from the motor trade and in to classic car and motorcycle journalism has allowed him to put some of that experience on to paper in magazine articles and two previous books.

Very useful for anyone like me who really has no clue what to check on a used mini, but from what found out I seemed to have picked up a bargain. It could have a totally different story, so armed with this next time should be in a better position to haggle.

Format: Paperback
Fair description for its prupose. A really nice book for beginers in the Mini scene, who want to buy its 1st exemplar. Easy to understand descriptions with the add of many quality pictures.
Not for people who already know a little of Minis, wich for them don't add much more info.

HASH(0x9ce5e540) out of 5 stars Thorough, pricey if pay full price. 6 Jun. 2013
By Dahlia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is not a comprehensive history on the Mini Cooper, it is a list of the different things to look for when you are out and about looking at the physical car for purchase. It will give you a category such as, "Chassis" and then tell you every reasonable bar and bolt to check to ensure your money is well-spent. Tips on spotting quick yet shoddy repairs and authentic parts, this volume is short and to the point. A great start in your quest to building your knowledge in purchasing and properly restoring the classic car.

Great little book. I am a fan of minis, but wasn't sure how to buy one. With the book I got great insight as to what is critical when inspecting a mini for purchase

Bit dated (but the Mini stopped being produced in 2000). The photos are not printed all that well, but the information is sound.

Thorough, clear, a bit overwhelming but just what you need if you're looking to purchase a Mini.
