It’s not very often that we send out a car on hire before we have even had chance to restore it to our standard, but that is what happened last weekend with the latest addition to our hire fleet. We had just purchased this lovely little 1982 Classic Mini automatic with a few to having it repainted, new interior and a few ‘Italian Job’ additions. Last week I had a call from a photo studio looking for a classic mini for a photo shoot here in Devon for Harper’s Bazaar Magazine. Much as they liked our white mini they were looking for something a little more ‘used’ so I suggested our red mini. Although the red mini needs tlc to get it up to our standard it is running and on the road so I passed on some images and the production team said it was ideal! So I delivered the little red mini to Wembury House, a beautiful country house near Wembury on a perfect sunny Saturday afternoon. I collected the car on Sunday and the photographer was so smitten with the little car he is now looking to buy one in London.
The photos are for the July edition of Harper’s Bazaar so if you see a copy in your news agent take a look, that’s our little red mini looking good even before we have restored it.
The red mini is set to join our white mini and we are now looking for a blue mini so we can set up an ‘Italian Job’ style mini cavalcade for weddings and events. If you would like more details please contact us on 07918715039 or via the website links.
