A trip down memory lane! The year 1993, the starting point – a mini cooper.

A friend recently reminded about one of my wilder projects, back in 1993 – converting a mini into a hippo.

Donated as a rebuild/challenge project by Adrian, I don’t think he envisaged seeing his former pride and joy transformed into a hippo.  Exhibited in London at the Mall Galleries, Oxfordshire and Lancashire, she travelled up and down the M6 several times, not under her own steam but kindly assisted by the RAC (turning heads as she went).
