In Mini Magazine February Issue 221:
February’s issue of Mini Magazine brings together a unique collection of six exclusive Minis, combining tales of unique design, dedication, and sheer tyre-shredding grunt!
Our cover star is Emma Husband’s fantastic rebuilt saloon, which has transformed her daily commute thanks to its brilliant individual style and tweaked yet ultra-reliable single-point fuel injection motor. Karen Eastman’s superb concours City has also received a modern boost in the shape of an MPi conversion, while at the other end of the scale Pat Ford’s fire-breathing KAD Clubman spaceframe racer boats over 200bhp from it’s 2.1-litre XE engine!
In addition, you’ll also find the heart-warming tale of motoring journalist James Ruppert’s 34-year relationship with his MkI Cooper and Gary Troth’s Mk3 street racer with its unique smoothed engine bay. We’ve also got a one-off Italian coachbuilt Moke preserved just as it was in the ‘60s, plus the final part of 'Diddy' Dave's global adventure – and it's a scary one!
Need a tech fix? We’ve got that covered too, with a step-by-step guide to fitting power steering (yes, really!) and a waterless coolant swap, plus our resident guru Keith Calver shares his wisdom on pre-Verto clutches and answers your technical queries. All this plus the latest event reports, motorsport, our projects, Minis for sale and a whole lot more!
