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.

Additional information is on the placard shown in the photo gallery.

A standard Wolseley Hornet and its sister, the Riley Elf, feature vertical grilles and an extended boot (trunk).

This Heinz Hornet was spotted in 2004 at the national “East Meets West” Mini Meet.The national event is held every four years. That year, it was in Illinois. [ note: the national Mini Meet event in 2019 will be in Snowmass, Colorado.]
