Also, welcome back Dave and Cindy from Vancouver, WA. Their collection includes a 1981 Mini City converted to 1275 and disk brakes and a 1971 Morris Traveller converted to 1275, disks brakes and wood kit. Paul and Kathryn join OMS from La Grande, OR.  They have had an assortment of Porches and Land Rover in the past but admit that Kathryn’s 1989 Rover Mini City (with too many mods to list, including it used to be Toby Pond’s car) is a load of fun to drive (more so than some of their Porches)!!!  Great to have you with OMS! We look forward to seeing these beautiful cars in...
