VTEC: 1982 Austin Mini

The original Mini was produced for an insanely long period of time -- 41 years to be precise -- with only minor changes. However, it was always a pokey little puppy, even in the hottest of Clubman 1275 GT trim, so if you want to go fast, you'll need to find a modified example.  Like this 1982 Austin Mini offered for $12,000 in Phoenix, AZ via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.

A classic Mini with a Honda VTEC engine is the perfect thing to go in your garage next to a Corvette -- but it'll be much more raw and insane of a ride. If the Corvette is a thoroughbred race horse, then the Mini-Me is a water-buffalo high on ecstasy. 

See another crazy mini offered for cheap?
