About Us

We’re a loosly based club, the membership simply being the owners of the cars.  It is free to be in the club, you just have to own a classic Mini cabriolet built by Auto Design in Kent England, or have a classic Mini built with one of their kits.  We are all here simply to help each other out and support our cars.

We are not connected in any way with the company Auto Design (Kent) Ltd.

Where we have reproduced old back catalogues and/or promotional material for historical interest only, the copyright of any third party remains with that third party.

Mark Smith currently runs the Facebook group and his company Mark Andrew Smith Limited sponsors the running of this website.


We communicate publically via our Facebook group, and we do not capture information about you, other than your name, and approximate global location (country), and perhaps pictures of your lovely car.
