so on my way home today, i saw a dark green mini zip thru the byway at about 60mph, my windows were down so i heard the engine was so quiet, i believe it's a fuel injected mini, i didn't know a classic mini can run 60mph without a smoke.  i was amazed, i saw itcoming about quarter of  mile away , from a far right a way one can tell that it wasn't an ordinary car because of it's unique style and size.  i kinda love my mini more now.  
But in my observation, people tend to like or appreciate a running project mini,, people do not appreciate a too shiny and well kept mini, people love to see mini that has some rust here and there, primer, a little bondo, like my mini, that's why whenever my wife ask me when will i paint my mini, i always say, owning a mini is like having a child, you never stop taking care of it.  to me if my mini mini is well painted and shiny, people tend to see it as just any ordinary car in the street. ,, my mini will stay as a running project,  fix, upgrade and modify throughout the course of time that i own it.,, i can always put money to it and make it nice, and then what????






what he did to me was a reverse psychology... Which is good, nobody eggs on me anymore, i like it,,,thanks my friend!!


someone said " if im going to hell, im going with a moke"  omg,  another moke hater.... Count me in.  If you want to know my opinion about mokes??  Straight forward i'd say i dont like it.   First, it looks like a senior citizens  modified golf cart that goes around RV parks,  second the shape and style doesnt look serious, it looks like a childs plastic jeep running with 6volts motor bought from toys r us.  Lastly, it doesnt posses any exciting history unlike the classic minis.,, its just moke came out from nowhere, a military vehicle reject.   Thats my opinion.

..So me and wifey went to Scottsdale az, what an awsome place, malls and delicious restaurants are everywhere, a lot of nice beautiful girls around.   No wonder the Barret Jackson auction is being held in that place, scottsdale people are fond of classic cars
From yuma az to phoenix the highway is ok, but during summer if your car stall in those area you'd be dead. , i wonder how that guy from meza arizona even surviving the heat when he drives to caifornia, or maybe he pass by I-10.  





Again,,, if you think this post is offensive,,, justify it then i will delete. I dont want to put my foot inside my mouth again and yank it from my rectum.... Ouch!!!!




so  just yesterday somebody was giving a not so good side remarks about asians like me, that i was apparently a vertically challenged clown. I know that he knew im asian thats why he wants to hit me about my height...  Yes i admit i am a 4 foot jap, happy now????

Im kinda pissed and i dont want to keep it to my self, so please i want to rant a little,  my mini seat post bolt has lost it's thread, so now its moving sideways whenever i turn, i realy dont know why issigonis even bolt it together instead of welding it permanently, i mean do you even need to remove the bolt? For what?  The only bolt that is needed is between the seat post and the seat NOT from seat post to the body. So, this weekend im going to weld them all to the flooring. I dont care.
The  seat holder has bolt while the radiator does not have a drain plug,, And there are three ashtrays inside a mini,  figure that out!!!  Was there already poppy seeds back in the days that people lost their ability to make better decisions? Jizzz


but the drain plug-less radiator is still the no.1 in the list.


.... I think i am much safer here in my little space than out there...ill be staying here for a while since nobody reads or even visits this thread.  Good, this is where i will post my intelligence...watch out, ill be posting some videos in the succeeding days....and prove that i really own a mini..

DM has finally succeeded...............in brainwashing,,, aaanyway!

Alex replied but intentionally ignoring the recent post..... In court, it's call the theory of conspiracy and in psychology, its called Silent Sarcasm..............


i guess some individuals were secretly emailing each other....

im still trying to discover some pieces of evidence of conspiracy,, anyway.

up to now i'm still shocked.

happy now my detractors??


nabenta mo na dre??

i have spent hours and days looking for these honda brake system sold by Joltfreak for $500 and i can't find one on the internet, i really think they are scam..they wanted to be a dream catcher on being the first to modify a honda brake system to a mini, but they fail. all just lip service...

TGIF !!!!

garage time!! After weeks of working, now i have my wee time with my mini, continuing my project tonight,  i use whatever things i have in my backyard, i dont put too much money on it, so if i part with it,it wont hurt that much. Doing sone grinding and welding till midnight tonight!!   But first i need to take my 5 hour energy drink.... And i need to hurry because before 5 hours is over ill be weak again....

The Fabricator is in the hoooouse!!!


Edited to criticize:   Well one guy shamelessly whine about his ordered parts, and guess what, he vented his crap on the same forum whch the company owns, very unethical. Good that he deleted his thread. 

Oh Andie, Andie !!!

johnie, Why don't you just hire some people there in UK to disassemble the race car and ship them to US as parts?? it may take few boxes of parts but it can get in legally, and just assemble them here. i have shipped 2 hayabusa to my country several years ago, i disassemble them and ship the boxes several days apart. the customs cannot slap you with enormous amount of tax because it is not categorized as driveable vehicle, they are parts only, they are free to open the box and inspect,they won't see any car inside. again, money is not the issue here, it's their LAWS that were too strict.,, i find it so inhumane when the car is already in the US and they(customs) will decline it and tells you to ship it back...this ruins my day,

Why do i have this feeling of insult everytime i or anybody would post a problem then someone suddenly pops in and ask if he has a Haynes manual???, im like !! Omg The reason why i get into forums is to get solutuons to the problem quick, dont get me to wear my reading  glasses ang scan pages in the middle of my fix where my hands are all smeared with grease ,,, jeeeeez!!!!  And dont tell newbies or anyone to use search button to look for past discussions, its just so unfriendly to say that imo, if you know the solution then spit it out and help.... I admit , im naughtly at times but im particular with forum etiquettes.. 



Just an observation....

....see?? even the vin was tampered accdg to TTW, this little half mini is no good, it will give you dilema more than joy. and especially if you are going to drive it in California where rules are very strict, people are not even allowed to fart in public in accordance to the Clean Air Act of 2017.

btw,good catch TTW..

Beanie, before you shell out enormous amount of money on that little half mini, have a self assesment, if you really really want it, what use does it have for you, compared to the headache of importing this  nice car,  although TTW is willing to help you innvolving dearly amount of money, still ,, if you are to look for a beat up mini here in the US and have some legitimate people to slice the mini for you and copy the one you want, it can be done easily.  BUT if money is not an issue , go ahead.
Best of luck!

In connection to MLM's problem.:   I dont exhaust thinking why and how a tach can even affect the performance of an engine(????)   And also a mis-wired coil will NOT allow a car to run not only at high rpm(4k) but also at low rpm.   I dunno what pink wire he's talking about(???).  
And also a mis-wired tacho will make a car run bad at high rpm??? Reallly???? 


I think someone is loosing his magic touch...



and also someone is having a huuuge problem as to where to put his spare wheel , at the cargo area or behind the seat??? On his toy tamia?? I was like, really omg, his problem is so BIG, maybe a life and death situation....WHILE MLM is pulling his hair (or wig) because he can't even get his mini to run past 4krpm..

...so i went to see a movie yesterday, and i saw this guy, makes me smile and almost laugh, he gets inside his Classic car and he closes the door using his two hands...i was laughing,,, WHY all classic cars need two hands to close from the inside., one hand to pull and the other hand to tilt the door up because it has drooped due to rusted hinges..i remember a friend who used to open his car from the inside using the outside door opener. ...

just an observation...i love my mini btw

Im at starbux,, funny there's a father and daughter looking at my mini and arguing, the daughter keeps on asking what car is it and even the dad doesnt know what It is, and the daughter said i want one dad!!  The dad is about 60yo...i dont want to talk to them tho because they won't understand my horrible accent anyway.. 
Classic mini is nice to look at but owning one entails a lot of dedication, love and tlc if you want it to run excellent. Otherwise it will leave you stranded in the middle or side of the road if you take it 4granted. 
And now, as i write this, there's this dad and two sons looking inside the mini.  Hasay, Youngsters nowadays dont have  any idea what car is this, where can they find a car like our mini which drives 110mph downhill with a storm behind you and  drives 5mph going uphill with the gas pedal squeezed down to the floor...?? Only our minis !! And im proud of it... Love my mini to death!

but up to now i keep on thinking day and night HOW can " someone" drive his stock 850cc mini 75mph in the highway???  Is this another political bluff??  Aaanyway...


i hate when people change lane when they see me in traffic light... I feel very insulted....im very very offended.

Project 70% done...







ps:     9 insecure people..... And counting !!!!   Who could be the 10th???   Hmm Let's see..


...edited... So saggy is no.12.... Hmm, No wonder he's been my critic since day one.

i'm surprised, the Florida guy and the Mesa Arizona guy were not in the list???  They both must have finally realized that dealing with me is a waste of time. All i want is to be igmored and to have a little privacy in my little space,  that's all, but people cant help themselves and they're always in my neck wherever i go.  And i see Dan moffet has finally turned his back on me.  Well idc, i have already psychologized his being him. There are really people who are quick to deny.  Before i got banned last year DM used to defend me, then when i was gone, i read his posts and to my surprise he sided on the opposite side right away, and he started lambasting me left and right.  i was like really??  




MY RESPONSE TO BS's bs : quote with rersponse below: 1) If you ban him, shouldn't once be enough, otherwise it isn't really a ban. response: Yes, i was banned quite a few times, and i re-registered quite a few times too, please quit blaming the mods, the ban was legitimate, i went overboard at times and i need to be punished i understand but there was no rule that i cannot re- register once banned. whatever iam is because of me,no outside influence,so please leave the mods out of this for fairness sake. As i have said again and again,, i am a legitimate owner of a 1977 Leyland mini from belgium, and i enjoy this forum as much as you do that's why i am here. You may not like my opinion on some topics but who are we to judge that my opinion is wrong and your's is right? being in this forum is a priveledge and i thank the owner for putting up such a nice informative forum like this for everyone to enjoy.,,, i'm not getting special treatment here if that's what you think...naah! 2) I try to stay off his special place, but will admit to looking at it when I saw that Alex had replied to him. Curious to see what had riled him (Alex) enough to have to respond. response: well, alex (with a small letter a) used to be nice, until he promised to send me a dizzy which apparently did not happened, and he blames me of putting up an account to attack him,gosh... well, i know alex is famous in the mini world in UK..... go to some asian mini gatherings online,,and you'll see my face everywhere...search!!! am i famous too or not?? tell me... 3) We won't have to worry about him ruining the board that Cheleker recommended because there is a registration required before you can post to it. Plus a person can be banned from that board for posting crap. response: billy, i won't lift a finger signing up on that forum trust me. i go to well known forums only, AND besides, LOOK at their so called "INTERNATIONAL CORNER",,there's was no asian countries listed, not even one!!!!! i dunno why they don't like third world countries on that new forum...OMG!!!!....very unfriendly website!! PS: i know, my being Asian has a lot to do with all of these....




edited::  So i see Mr. Scotland Forever has spoken his nonsense 2 cents again, attacking cultures this time,  you want to talk culture???? Ok tell me mr. Jim alba whatever your name is,  why are scottish men like you wear checkered mini skirt? And worst of all, it's color red !! OMG!!!  Can't you guys leave the skirts for the women ????



.....edited  3:32am 2-14-17
So one guy wanted to log out from this forum to make himself look like a martyr and a hero, well fyi,loging out is not a heroic act TD,!!... Logging out is nothing.... I'll show you how to delete your account, now that will make sense!!!!and will give more meaning to your martyrdom.... 

For the record....some of you must have seen Jimatalba's attack on our host, his post was deleted by him out of embarrassment maybe,or he woke up an hour later and his sober-ness came back and regret everything he said and delete it... that post was too much. i mean, i am a naughty person and a naughty member but never had i attack any person that severe.....just too much! Time to wear your red checkered miniskirt scottish Jim...lol

https://youtu.be/XHBw4_0ArKk 


i categorically deny all the speculations and the allegations being thrown against me.

those 6 people, i call them magnificent 6 , are full of insecurities, so insecured with my practical knowledge.  My advices are not in the book, they are based from my actual out of the box experiences throughout the years.

Make it  the "magnificent 7"   The last one just voted without knowing anything.,, ...ow gawd!!  ...Kelley,, pls just concentrate on your blue book willya??
