Stanford Hall in Leicestershire once again played host to the National Mini Owners Club’s annual National Mini Show and AROnline was there. Various sporty and modified Minis attended the event, but our pictures focus on the bread and butter models which made up the bulk of the 5.5 million Minis made.
These range from the badge-engineered MkIs, the ultra-rare MkIIs and the MkIIIs that were on sale during the car’s early 1970s sales zenith to the MkIVs which fought a rearguard action against a new generation of supermini rivals in the late 1970s.
There are also a couple of Innocentis and an Australian-built Clubman.
