Mini Cooper Fever!

            The Mini, a car conceived by the British Motor Corporation was first produced in 1959. After many years, it still remained as a popular car. In Malaysia, it is some sort of an cult icon where even a condemned condition one can fetch RM5,000 (USD$1500). A thorough restored one can fetch up to RM30,000 (USD$10,000)! We are talking about the classic old mini cooper here, not the new ones. In fact, it is a popular car for many extreme modifications.

For the engine alone, many enthusiasts have plonked in B16A honda Vtec engines inside! Of course in Malaysia it isn't legal.
