    Twini for sale - http://www.minimania.com/web/id/8628...ale_Detail.cfm

    I don't know that I would want to own it, but I'd love to take it for a test drive.

      Mark, there's a little problem with using standard tanks in that car. There just happens to be a power unit where the tanks would go.

      I saw the car in Florida when Windsor first imported it. Amazing car, but I couldn't get a drive. It had been trailered in because it needed some minor work done, as I recall.

      Windsor also had my Wildgoose there. He's the one that bought it. Or as I like to put it, the Goose flew south for the winter and didn't come back.

      Now if you insist on two tanks, I have a Mk II S for sale for just a little less than the Twinni. Not a lot. Just a little.

        I had to look again. That is crazy! A twin engine Mini. Chuck, you'd probably like that in the club - twice the maintenance.

        Interesting link on Twini: http://mk1-performance-conversions.c...pics_twini.htm

        What S are you selling? Your police car?

        I won't be able to make another purchase until I file my taxes or sell my VW truck (won best in class at a big VW show this year). Payroll screwed up and deducted $600 too much for 22 paychecks this year. Should have a nice refund...

            If you can't afford the Twini, how about a Mini Bimotor at considerably less than $45K

              Mark's Mk 1 site is a good one for those interested in the early Minis. I am going to have to talk with him about leaving out the twinni Mokes! The first one of those was also built over the winter of 62-63 and, unlike Emery's car, did see some proveable use. Photos of it show up in Mini books along with photos of one built around 1964 that was tested by the US Army. One of the twinni Mokes is still in the hands of the Heritage Museum. Another turned up in England a few years ago and I understand that Windsor, the owner of the twinni that is the subject of this thread, was having it rebuilt along with a Car-A-Boot. (We'll save that for another thread!)

                  Yup. I've always liked red pickups.

                    And there's enough room for a cow in the back.

                      No cows yet, but a lot of Mini parts.

                      So far, I've hauled pretty much every part off my 66 but the shell. Including replacement parts, the truck has carried 2 doors, 3 subframes, all electrical, flares, all suspension pieces, 6 hydrolastic displacers, hydro lines, brake lines, fuel lines, steering wheel, steering column, and rack, 8 wheels, superfin drums, and a RH tank.
