CAR OF THE WEEK

In case you hadn't noticed, the Mini's having a birthday - it's 40 years young. What better way to celebrate than by getting one yourself? Instead of paying more than pounds 9,000 for a new model, why not buy an original Sixties or Seventies Cooper comprehensively rebuilt by Bank Garage (01354 638667). This Cambridgeshire firm has a reputation for building bespoke Minis. Currently it has a 1971 example in diamond white, with chequered roof, hand-polished alloy wheels, a big 1340cc engine and automatic gearbox. Austin Powers would love it. The cost? Just pounds 7,500.
