Yes, I bought it from a guy in Leeds back in I think 2003. He had moved on to a 34 fibreglass ford at the time and the minor was basically abandoned as it had a blown gearbox. It has proved to have been very well built by Autofantasia of Derby as the basics have certainly stood the test of time - as has the body I may add as it's a great shell. Sadly it's not getting out much just now as it is in my mum's garage 20 miles away whilst I sort out my s***e :D
My son has a new toy (Scimitar) so there's no room at the inn for a short time, or at least till Astral Traveller is removed.

It's possibly the guy before the one i bought it from. He contacted me through the MMOC a few years ago.

I decided to collect Muj from it's year's hibernation in my mum's garage. It started as soon as fuel got to carb and drove 17 miles home without a glitch. I may use it a bit more this year.
It did seem a bit slow though :D

It's not bad, just over 6 x 5 with an attic as well, basement access to house and hot and cold running water. Waiting for weather to heat up before we paint the floor and will get tidied when garden is finished.
