I actually applied for membership to MOALA several years ago but after I sent my application and check, did not received anything. I spent travelling out of the country so I completely forgot to do a follow up. I again joined last November 2010 and after few emails I finally got my ID and now a legitimate member.
I fell in love with the mini after reading an article featuring Queen Elizabeth driving a mini in the palace ground. My first mini was a 67 Austin. My greatest experience on the car was driving it thorugh flood with seven guys in the car. The water was at the seat level and drove it 2 miles.
My second car was a 1968 Austin which I drove to SCCA in Hawaii. It's blue with Union Jack painted on top. Right now I have a 66 Morris Cooper S. It's red with tan interior, right hand drive with rag top. I plan to to start drivingi it this summer and hope to start getting acquainted with everybody.
