No probz.

The 3rd link was probably the best link out of all of them. How much are you willing to spend? Is there a specific year your looking at getting? What kind of condidtion do you want the car to be in?

good luck finding an old school Mini in fair-good condition
I've only seen one old school Mini in decent condition (in europe)
Very rare car if you ask me

my buddy is also looking for one too a year ago when the mini craze started in TO. You pretty much have to find one in the UK and import them into Canada. He searched every car place but with no luck. Check with custom brokers that deals with importing cars from overseas and they might be able to help you out.
