MiniGuy was a DMV-licensed dealer/broker in California for 12 years, but all cars on this site are “For Sale by Owner.” For details or more info, please contact us. We also assist in having thorough pre-purchase evaluations performed, Escrow services to provide for more-secure funds and title transfers, and door-to-door transport. When considering a car for purchase – including ones on this site, it's prudent to pay for a specialist or your mechanic to check them out, since these will not necessarily have undergone the same scrutiny they would've had before being offered in MiniGuy's former showroom. We also offer "Buyers Agent" services for locating cars, or consulting, or assisting with negotiations or transactions.

NOTE: We're always seeking classic Minis for these "Consignment / For Sale by Owner" pages. Please use our Vehicle Request Form or contact us at: miniguy@miniguy.com

Email Explosion…’Lucas’ Lives?

Thurs., July 26, 2007 – To those who sent us emails – or received ones we sent – between July 5 and yesterday, July 25, please note that our email program exploded. And, what’s worse, our interim backup file was corrupted and many messages were lost. We’d like to meet your needs, but we’ll need you to help us out by re-sending your emails.

Thanks for understanding, and please, no wisecracks about “Lucas computers”…

For the newbies out there, British cars – including Minis – have gained a reputation that those with Lucas electrics experience an inordinate number of electrical issues, hence the jibes…

Reminds me of the old joke. “Why do Englishmen drink warm beer? That’s because they have Lucas refrigerators!”

Or, some British car owners lament a visit from “Lucas, the Prince of Darkness,” who, oh, never mind, I think you get the general idea…
