No MOT for our 1959 Minis

As from the 18th November 2012 it will not be necessary to MOT pre 1960 cars.

For full details please read this letter recently sent to us by the DVLA.

Massimiliano Terragni

What’s happening?

Register member Massimiliano Terragni has his 1959 Mini featured in an Italian car magazine!

Max bought UVJ from long time 59 supporter and owner Chris Wooden in late 2009. After getting what most of us would agree was a fairly perfect early car home to Milan, Max stripped it down to an almost bare shell again. After cleaning and repainting the underside of the car and all the running gear, Max rebuilt UVJ to un-parallel levels and was rewarded with this magazine shoot. The original 1960 magazine shoot and front cover is a 1959 car tested in Italy in March 1960 and believed to be the first Mini imported in to the country.
