Hi all

If you are new to the board or have never made a post before, don't just lurk around, post in here and introduce yourself and your Minor if you have one. It would be great to hear from you.

Hi all

I'm new, having reached senior status, and decided a MM is now for me. Years ago I worked for PO Telephones and drove one and it was one of those things that stay with you, you know what I mean !

Anyway, I'm looking around for one and would probably like a pre 60's one, but of course without all of the hard work in restoration, for weekend in the summers so if anyone has any advice let me have it !

:D Welcome to the forum from me too Des - hope you find a suitable Minor soon! (Do you have a preference for which version e.g. saloon or van?)

Nice to welcome you Des,

Good luck in your search and remember, the only daft question is the one you don't ask. Loads of genuine friendly advise and help to be had here.

Welcome Des, from another newbie.

The only advice I would give is to decide if you like driving or restoring the most.

Some people are happy buying a wreck and taking years to get it back on the road. Doing the work is the fun.

Others prefer driving and going to shows. They either buy a restored car or farm out some of the work.

Depends on your preferences and budget of course. Most of us probably fit somewhere between the two extremes and there's room for everybody in this hobby.

As I said in my original post "without all of the hard work in restoration".

Thanks to you and all replies.
