The Mini Cooper Forum was set up in 2016 with a view to providing a discussion and information platform for classic Mini Cooper and BMW MINI Cooper enthusiasts around the world. However discussion on anything to do with the Mini/MINI has always been welcomed.

As the forum banner says it is an independent forum with no affiliation to any car club or business. In terms of operation the forum has worked well with very few problems. However it’s fair to say that the forum has not been a success. Quite why remains something of a mystery. With this background in mind we hereby give notice that a final decision as to whether the Mini Cooper Forum continues to run or is taken down will be made on or just after 30th November 2019.

If you have ideas of how the forum might be improved to attract more discussion please feel free to either post on the forum or email

Built by Andy Ayres in 1970,a very special club rally car, Left hand drive,from a new BMC body shell, as EHA555D was the previous rally car( with its works mods) all the works mods were copied, and fitted including sub frame front and rear mods, the car was wired by the works elections, brakes had shields, rear trailing arm mods, all re manufactured ,
the 1390 engine was on a signal 45,all straight cut, trans, DG,diff 3.9 SC with a LSD, Engine was built by David Hirons fabulous Engine.
On this car 1st outing at a local Warwickshire autocross it was rolled many times, a sad day, Peter Fenton of 1071 rally fame straightened the body
and the car never got bent again ,and went on to be a very successful rally car for the next few years and win many awards. Where has it gone to?
