A lone Ranger in America

Let's see if we can find some good news from the USA. Well… how about a Ranger Cub that somehow made it to America? A most unusual journey for this little three-wheeler from The Old Corona - the supposed haunted cinema in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex where it was built - to Happy Valley, Oregon where it lives now. How on earth did it end up there? Despite the silly video they made about it, the chaps in Oregon appear to enjoy it and give it the tlc it deserves. The car was sold through a UK Mini specialist and still wears its plates from the 848 powered 1964 Morris Mini donor.

Same car in the UK some 10 years ago. It's registered as a 1964 Morris Mini with 848 power

Pretty lame, but at least these guys care for the little Cub!
