Automotive

We are a dedicated podcast that rallies around the loyal Classic Mini community globally where we celebrate our own selfish passion - all things Classic Minis. We are not engineers or designers - but storytellers, general problem solvers and explorers on our own journey around owning and living with a Classic Mini. Our charter is to bring unique content into our framework that may not necessarily always be Mini related, but adds to the unique and common ideology that is inherent within all Classic Mini enthusiasts - having fun, a nice beverage in hand and connecting with others. Our hope is that many Classic Mini fans can listen in on the go while bringing more value and insights around this amazing classic British car and an automotive piece of history. Cheers! www.classicminibreakdown.com

Episodes

Welcome to Episode #12, where we discuss getting tunes set up in your Classic Mini at a high-level. We Classic Mini owners don't have a lot of real estate in our small cars, so you need to think it through before you cut wires and metal.  Enjoy and Cheers!

If you are looking to buy a Classic Mini, or fix a Classic Mini, or just some general maintenance - where do you go?  We explore forums, car shows and other content providers to know where people are having active conversations and where you can find answers. Feel free to tell us where you can go for good advice by emailing us. Cheers!
