How Mad Is This ???????

Post  SUMB on Mon Jul 26, 2010 11:10 pm

Listed as a Mini Tici. I have never ever seen or heard of one before, but in a mental sort of way I like it

What other kind of way would we expect from you?!

It certainly is 'interesting' Can't quite work out what it reminds me of - some sort of food wrapping I think! - I suppose that's all the cars made from cardboard boxes I have seen during my days as a primary teacher, kicking in! Laughing

Some info on the Tici, with further links, here. A short-lived Mini-based kit car that looks as though it should have done better - wonder what the problem was?

My mate still has an unstarted one of those in his dads workshop. It must of been there 20 years!!! Apparently you were only supposed to fit a 850cc engine and with a 1275cc it would wheelie!
