1989 Classic Mini Restoration Project

One of our Mini Spares Midlands customers is on the verge of completing his full scale restoration on this 1989 G Registration Mini.

Chris kindly sent us these pictures showing the project at varying stages of completion which highlights just how much work has gone into developing the Mini getting it to just how Chris wants it.

The majority of parts were purchased from Mini Spares Midlands (part of the David Manners Group), however one constant on these pictures is the vibrant red that excels throughout. At one point, you can see a complete removal of the engine in what looks to be the setting of a homemade garage. If this is the case, this is truly a stunning retreat for any tinkering petrol head.

It’s interesting to see that Chris has opted for the black and silver number plate. Perhaps this is because it complements the black and red colourway, but we are seeing an increase of younger Mini owners migrating to the older style especially at our annual Mini Spares Open Evenings.

We are excited about seeing this Mini at DMG in the near future, so please let us know the next time you are popping over.

French Classic Mini Restoration Project

We want you to keep a very close eye on this Mini restoration project. Our customer who has already restored 2 Minis to competition winning status is starting right from the bottom on this car.
We have already featured one of his completed Mini projects late last month; a classic Mini built and restored entirely from David Manners Group (Mini Spares Midlands) parts.

If you attended the Birmingham NEC Classic Motor Show in November, you may have seen one of his Minis on display. We hope that in the not too distant future, we can be saying the same about this one. It certainly looks a long way off the target, but as our customer has such a pedigree for restoration, we are in no doubt this Mini will one day be turning heads for the right reasons.

1995 Jaguar XJS at the David Manners Group

For many, the Jaguar XJS is becoming a treasured car to spot on occasions. The numbers are dwindling on Britain’s roads and when you do see one, they certainly stand out from the crowd. Much of this is owed to the dimensions of the XJS. And of course, it does have that undeniable modern and classic feel to it.

As it followed on from the E-type, the similarities are obvious for all to see, but as it was approaching the 1980’s, it certainly has the futuristic appeal thrown into the mix.

The blue/grey colourway of this XJS certainly offers an executive feel to it. It is excellently maintained and is still used on a regular basis.
We have seen a few Jaguar XJS models at the David Manners Group this year which is great to see, so we will endeavour to showcase more in the coming months.
