Gecko's never die

Found in rural Oxfordshire and photographed by Tim Green: an Autobarn Gecko that's slowly becoming one with the nature surrounding it. Will it be too far gone or was the Gecko really the toughest of all Mini derivatives? (that's how they marketed it!).

Found in a field and slowly detoriating. Or not? The Autobarn Gecko was tough

You bet it was! They car was advertised throughout the specialized press as being so

'Our strength is others weakness'. 88 Geckos were built between 1976 and 1992

The company behind it was, remarkably, a Volkswagen Beetle specialist

This one looks more cared for. The Gecko was available in a number of variants
