The idea was hatched in 2009 when the MiniWorid team came up with the plan of building a new project Mini as the basis for our Keeping Your Mini Alive spin-off mag. During discussions, the name 'Bogus' kept popping up as being our most exciting ever project Mini. Bogus was an integral part of the magazine right from the early days of MiniWorid. It was the magazine's first real project car and was put together by the original MiniWorid team. For me, the main thing about Bogus was its stunning...

This is Penny, our 1995 Mini Sidewalk LE. My dad, Dave, and mum, Ange, bought her in August 2009 and we haven't stopped having fun with her yet I don't think we ever will. She recently took my sister Zoe to her Year 11 school prom. The Mini was the talking point of the evening and why wouldn't it be We have just fitted a new exhaust which sounds ace. Under the bonnet there is a 1275 engine. It is mostly original, except for some things like the dampers, spots and a few stickers. In the third...

__Top Question wins a Sealey LED cranked .___ handle ratchet worth 42.94. I have just bought a 1997 Rover Mini 1.3i with only 65,000 miles and in generally good order. It is my first car and I plan to gradually modify it over a number of years. Because of my age I am 17 I cannot carry out many performance mods to start with but I would like to know where the best place is to have the ECU remapped, as this would be an invisible mod. How much power can be gained by modding a Mini in this way Phil...

Hat made Balazs Kotroczo's win even more impressive was the fact that he'd trekked half way across Europe to get to Longbridge, and had barely washed the car before it was judged. I simply couldn't believe it, he remembers. Me, the poor Hungarian, first time in England, in the cradle of the Mini, won the award I think on that day that every second of the hard work was worthwhile. Representing the 1970s cars in the Heritage run was just the icing on the cake for him. For Anglophile Balazs the...

Peter and Karen Wright would love to fill in some of the gaps in the early history of their 1967 Austin Cooper. They bought her from a garage in Millom, Cumbria in 1990. Originally white with a black roof, she had been painted blue. Peter was told it was a company colour as it was previously owned by a company called Tropimere in London, and was bought by them in 1975. According to the DVLA, the car has had numerous homes in Oxfordshire, Surrey, and Buckinghamshire. The Mini Cooper Register...
