Norwegian classic Mini find

Some classic cars sound a little too good to be true on paper, but sometimes you can come across a true collector's item that is deserving of your attention.
One such vehicle is currently on sale in Norway. In this instance it is a 1989 Rover Mini, which has only driven 11 miles since it left the factory well over two decades ago.
Although the Rover Mini was barely used, if at all, it still received plenty of care and attention to keep it in tip top shape, with its private owner making sure that the ravages of time did not compromise its construction or mechanicals.
This particular Mini was actually built as a 30th anniversary limited edition, with just 3,000 being produced in 1989, making it even rarer.
The asking price for the car is the equivalent of just over $22,000. This is not as much as you would get for an older Mini with similarly impressive mileage, but it is certainly a good chunk of dough.
Those who want to buy classic cars as an investment will find such collectors' items to be particularly lucrative, providing you have the means to store and maintain a vehicle you will not actually use regularly.
