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:

Yet Another Pair of Father-Son Minis…

Sept. 17, 2004 – Here’s my new friend Gene B. and the orange Mini we here at MiniGuy helped him adopt. He plans to fix up this one with his 13-year-old son Raffe, who is also excited about the project.

Prior to this pic, Gene had already picked up a really clean light green “survivor” Mk1 for himself from our showroom. That one won’t need much cosmetic work at all, before it starts heading out to shows.

Gene tells a great story about the AMC Javelin he had years ago in his garage. When he went out to drive it one day, he discovered that a very, very young Raffe had other plans. Raffe had snuck out into the garage, found a screwdriver, and had completely dismantled the dash – just to see what was behind all those screws…

We here at MiniGuy would have to add it up, but I believe this marks about our twelfth pair of “father-son” Minis. Since I have three boys of my own, ages 7, 10 & 13, I try to give particularly good deals to anyone planning a father-son bonding project!
