The Vancouver Mini Club was founded in July, 1973 by eight enthusiastic Mini owners. In the first year, the membership had increased to sixty members!
The Club was started because Minis are landmarks of automotive history and just wonderful cars. With proper care and maintenance, they are also dependable automobiles. On top of being extremely economical and just plain fun to drive. What more could you ask for in a car produced from 1959 until 2000! As these cars are becoming more rare and collectible, we would like to see as many Minis as possible being preserved and enjoyed for as long as possible.
One of the goals of the club is to help people take care of their Minis. With club members knowledgeable with the internal workings and restoration of these marvelous machines, our member parts suppliers and our free Swap&Shop Mini advertising, we help Miniacs keep their cars on the road.
The club also has a large number of social events for members, such as drives and picnics. We also encourage members to be active in other car events in B.C. and beyond such as Mini Meets, field meets, British car runs, slaloms, rallies, and racing.
