I used to live in Stanmore, N.W. London. As a child, I remember seeing on many occasions a Mini that used to be parked outside a house on Old Church Lane. The bodywork was covered in coins, that as far as I can recall, were like really old 50p pieces, but all coloured an antique bronzey-gold. The coins were not arranged haphazardly; rather, they tessalated somehow, giving the car the impression of being covered in scales.

Does anyone else remember this car, or know what happened to it?

Ta!

I remember the car, and the house-i dont remember it looking like the one in the picture though, Does anybody remember a Mini called Pulsation, fitted with an essex v6 in the front, flared arches, porthole windows in the back with little fat 8 spokes on the back,, it was in ed-turners in hayes for a while before a friend of mine picked it for peanuts, we have been trying to find its history for years-It was a very well made car in its day, any takers on that one??

Genius!








The penny lane mini is now in Jersey, at one of the Jersey Pearl outlets. I was so excited when I first saw it. Not sure about the mini in the OP though.
