keep your fingers crossed

Dear Mr Wisdom,

Just a quick message to let you know that your Mini’s have been booked to sail on the Herculesn Highway on the 1st November.

The expected arrival date in Port Canaveral is the 11th November.
Hope I don't jinx it by posting before the cars are on the boat

I was expecting these cars back in early August, but things kept getting delayed. Fast forward three months later (although it wasn't a fast three months) I'm finally getting them

Early 80s Mini Cities. One's all original and the other's had a bit of modification done to it.

No recent pics since the restorations were finished. I'll take some as soon as they dock. One of them is all but sold to a friend already. The other I am keeping for a while, until the next one is ready anyway. I have a ground-up build being done on a 76 shell as well, but we're still pretty far from done on that one.

Just heard from Emma at Phoenix that the cars have been picked up and are just awaiting the ship on the 1st. Won't be long now!

That is awesome!! I have two also, by default. Friends were all in prior to delivery and then bailed at arrival as the wives wouldn't allow. I understand though. They have a newly minted driver and prefer to have him in a larger vehicle for protection. He is driving a Chevy K3500 Crew cab long bed!! Couldn't get much larger-Hah. Of course he is starting to lobby for the Mini due to the $70 fill ups!!

Best of luck with your new additions.
