Mini Restoration Project with Practical Classics

We’re delighted to have teamed up with Practical Classics to help restore this rather special Mini, once belonging to Rowan Atkinson’s son!

We’ve already delivered several boxes of parts to the Practical Classics workshop, and we can’t wait to see the finished result – the aim being to restore it as closely as possible to Mr Bean’s iconic 1977 mini.


Much of the restoration work is being completed live on stage at the NEC Classic Motor Show in November, so be sure to book your tickets to come and visit us there!

Take a look at the winners of our ‘Best In Show’ competition who won trade discount vouchers and a subscription to Classic Jaguar Magazine. Geoff Johnston from the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club scooped ‘Best Classic Jaguar’ and John England won ‘Best Modern Jaguar’. Congratulations also went to Jane Stanley owner of the ‘Best Daimler’. Our ‘Furthest Travelled’ prize went to a lovely couple who drove their Jaguar XF all the way from Great Yarmouth!


We’d like to say a huge thank you to Red Coffee CoFootman James and Russ Carpenter Racing for helping make the afternoon such a success.
