      Here's another one: The Ultimate Mini Restoration Manual, by Iain Ayre. Here's the subtitle: How to Choose, Restore, Paint, Trim, Overhaul, Update, Upgrade, Grossly Overpower and generally Have Fun with a Classic Mini.
      Of course, not all of that could be captured in one book and Iain mentions using the book along with a shop manual.
      As for the FUN part, here's an example. " 'Carburettor' is a French word that translates as 'leave it alone.' "

          I concur with Chuck. It's a very good book, especially for those interested in documenting stock early Mini's.

          The singer James Taylor definitely was a car guy (at least in the early 70's..).

            And another one, The Journey That Never Was. I haven't read this one, yet, but I have it on order. There are excerpts from it in the January issue of MiniWorld, and you can find a write up on Amazon.

            It's 1961 and two women in their early 20s drive a 1959 Mini around the world.

              TTT.
              Presented the three books at last night's meeting and was asked to post them. Already had and here they are brought forward.

              Oh, and The Journey That Never Was is fascinating.

                  Paperback is all I've seen.
