Craig Howell's '68 Mini
San Carlos, California
The car is a 1968 Mk II model with a newer  Mk IV body.  It was restored in Belgium, repainted, and the original  engine was replaced with a 1275cc high compression unit from an MG Metro. The interior has been uprated to later Mini bits.  Everything works, and the car runs and drives beautifully. The go-cart like handling is amazing. The car has about 20,000 miles on it since the rebuild.

My car is featured in the
2004 "Classic British Mini's"
calendar by Ron Kimball.
