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:

V8-Powered Mini, But Let’s See the Engine!

May 26, 2004 – One of our Sacramento readers sent us this pic of a Chevy V8-powered Mini that turned up at a Nevada City car show/swap meet for Minis this past Saturday, and we found some other pics of it while surfing the ‘Net.

However, we still haven’t seen a pic of the engine. Can anyone help us with a pic of the engine, and some more details about the car and its owner and/or builder? If you have more pics, send them along to us too. Thanks!

In the mean time, to see another Chevy V8-powered Mini, see our Feb. 29 and March 2, 2004 features below.
