Mini Spares - Dealer Profile
This month we feature one of our specialised dealers, Mini Spares.
Mini Spares are the foremost suppliers of classic Mini parts in the world. They also hold the largest stocks of Mini parts in the world with over 9,000 different lines including all the Genuine Rover and Heritage parts available for the classic Mini, from the first 1959 model to the last Twin Point injected type.
In addition to their Potters Bar warehouse and head office they have two other stores. One in the Midlands and one in the North at Harrogate.
The shop at the Potters Bar head office has recently been refurbished and is linked directly to the warehouse for instant access to the huge stocks of parts. Mini Spares believe that a Mini belongs on the road. Where genuine parts are listed as “no longer available” they try, where possible, to have them re-manufactured to meet or exceed the original specification. and as 'original suppliers' to Rover all their own products naturally use top quality materials and feature the very best in design.... A bit like GAZ shocks really, and
Mini Spares also hold large stocks of GAZ suspension for classic Minis, both for the road and for out and out competition.
Parts for your Mini are just a click away. Just go to minispares.com and you will have the world’s largest range and stock of Mini parts at your fingertips.

PassionAuto France - Dealer Profile
Not just for Fords…
PassionAutoFrance – or PAF as is it often refered as in France – only started trading in late 2010 but has already carved itself somewhat of a reputation on the continent as the place to source parts for your classic restoration or competition car preparation.
Founded and managed by a Frenchman who has worked for over 20 years in motorsport both in the UK and on the world scene (including a 4 year stint with the Bleu Oval), PassionAutoFrance was originally set up to cater for the Ford Classic car market in France but has recently branched into other brands such as BMW, Lotus, Porsche, Fiat and others.
"It all started when I helped a friend sourcing parts from the UK for his Lotus Elan and Cortina MK1 builds as he just could not get the right parts in France, or at least not at a reasonable price" says PAF Owner Franck Marie. "A coupe of years later my friend, my Dad and I purchased a fully race prepared Anglia fitted with a Lotus Twincam that needed a litle bit of work to go historic racing. I was based in the UK and the car was based in France, so I never really got much chance of driving it. So I decided to build myself an Escort MK1 to have some fun on UK tracks, especially with Silverstone being just a stone throw from me. French Classic Ford owners followed the build of the car on a few French forums and started to ask me for parts and after a couple of months I gave up my day to day motorsport job and started PassionAutoFrance".

Burton Power - Dealer Profile
Burton Power is not only one of our best known dealers it is also one of our oldest.
They have been resident in Ilford, Essex (now very much a part of East London) since 1963 - longer than most people can remember - and are now considered one of the World’s leading authorities on classic Fords such as Escorts, Cortinas and Capris.
Today Burtons can supply everything from a tiny gasket to a ‘full house’ racing engine and their range of applications not only covers virtually every Ford model to have come out of Dagenham but also other leading performance marques such as Subaru.
Although Burton's founder, Lionel Burton, died in 1965, Burton Power remains true to his fundamental principle of quality and service. Their well known Sea Lion logo, designed originally to illustrate the company's balancing skills, has become a hallmark for excellence. From the early days of engine balancing, they have progressed to the sharp edge of motorsport, where they carry out specialist engineering work on all types of high performance machines, working for race teams, professional engine builders and private enthusiasts.
