Finally got one!

A place to come on in, warm your feet by the fire, pour yourself a large house double, and say hello . Let us know as much and as little about yourself as you're prepared to put on a forum.

Finally got one!

Post by carmaddave » Tue Mar 21 2017 - 7:43 pm

Hi
Finally got myself a GP1 and what a great car it is, number 1782. My first car was an H reg 850cc slide windows Mini back in the 70s. I got back into Minis a couple of years back with a Cooper S R 53 and have loved driving that and was keen to make it to a GP1. Looking forward to the summer and attending lots of car events. What are the main events the GPs attend? Dave

Congratulations on your purchase!
It took me a little under 10 years from first driving one to getting my GP - certainly worth the wait.
