We are shipping a container of 6 classic Minis from Christchurch, New Zealand to Nashville, Tennessee.  They are all rust-free & great-running.  Being that these cars are from New Zealand, they are all right-hand-drive & over 25 years old.  The Minis are traveling in a 40-foot container from New Zealand to Savannah, GA; and from there, will be put on a train to Nashville, TN.  They should arrive sometime at the end of February 09.  Once we look at the cars, we will set a price & list them for sale.  If you have any questions, feel free to email me at ben@rocketown.org.

First pictures of parts

So here is a little taste of what parts I have.  All of the parts that I have are on the videos below, just click on the high lighted sentence.  I am going to start listing on ebay, but if there is something you need or want you can email me and I will get back to you the price.  The previous owner was meticulous in the care of his parts.  Please email ben@rocketown.org for more info.  TO SEE A VIDEO OF THE PARTS FROM MY FIRST TRIP CLICK HERE.

Our first load of parts

My nephew, a co-worker and I drove this big rig from Nashville TN through some of the prettiest scenery America has to offer.  Our journey ended in Boone NC where we bought a rather large collection of MINIS and parts.  I will sort everything this weekend and start selling the individual pieces.  I will have pictures posted on this blog this weekend with some prices. They are in the Vintage Classic Garage.  This is an extensive collection with some great performance pieces for your MINI.  Email me if you have specific parts you need and I will see what we can do.  ben@rocketown.org  THE RACE CARS YOU SEE HERE ARE NOT FOR SALE, THEY ARE IN GOOD HANDS.

Are you as excited as we are?!?

Here they are!!--Being loaded into a forty-foot container on a beautiful Saturday in the middle of Summer, in the Garden City of Cristchurch New Zealand.  Don't they look like they can't wait to get in the container to move to the USA!  It is a long tedious process to carefully pack these cars. 

Which one is your favorite?  Feel free to leave a comment.  The KIWIS are also including some spares in the deal.  Along with the six MINIS, they have packed some roll-up doors, carbs, bumpers, some wheels and tires, LCB exhaust extractors, and a fresh 1275 engine and transmission. 

Please scroll down and look at all the cars on both pages.  Click HERE

1972 Austin Mini 1000cc

This is a 1972 Austin Mini.  It has alloy wheels, sport steering wheel, good paint, and I will put a new interior in it.  What goes with Lime Green?  Corona Gold.  I love movie links of people having fun with Minis.  If you are not having fun in a mini, check your pulse.  Click Here.

1966 Morris Mini 850cc

This is a very nice original 850cc Mini.  British Racing Green with Tan interior, sport steering, and the engine was just rebuilt.  The owner says it runs perfect.  Here are some Minis in action.  Click Here.  To see clips from the real ITALIAN JOB.

1968 Morris Traveler 1000cc

This has a 1000cc engine, super nice interior, and of course 10 more inches of storage space and van doors in the rear.  This is for the Mini enthusiast with baggage.  It has sport exhaust, sport steering wheel, stereo system, and alloy wheels.  I am told they made Minis like this in the southern hemisphere.  It is part Van, part Countryman.  This would be a great way to advertise your business.  It's strange that the smaller cars get the most attention.  How about some Mini History from the designer Himself?  Click Here.

1966 Morris Mini Race Car

This is a fully Race prepped 1275 engine historic race car.  I am the most curious about this car.  It has a full race prepped 1275 engine with a 40mm Dellorto carb., LCB race Exhaust, oil cooler, roll cage, race seats, the person I am buying this from says it is super fast.  This could make a fun parking lot racer.  How about a taste of a mini race car.  Click Here.

1974 Morris Mini

1974 Morris Mini, Only 19,223 miles since new.  1000cc engine standard all the way minus mud flaps.  Goodbye Pork Pie is an old New Zealand movie with a yellow Mini and a great car chase scene.  There is some foul language, so viewer discretion is advised.   Here it is:
