My first car ( apart from army ones ) was a Austin mini, reg 899 UP. As usual with British cars ( remember them ) the engine was ok but the bodywork soon deteriated into rust. I seem to remember the piston damper in the carburettor had to be topped up quite frequently. I now drive a Seat Ateca 2 ltr diesel automatic 50mpg & not a ha`poth of bother. I`m due to change it soon & can`t make up my mind to get a Golf, Audi or Beamer, that way i don`t have to bother about speed limits or driving sensibly !!
