It was. I had a fairly loud Abarth exhaust on it. The thing was geared to go, top speed, peak power and the red line all came up within about 200 RPM of each other and it was turning around 4000 RPM at 100 kph. No overdrive. Freeway driving wasn't very pleasant but when the road got twisty it was a blast. I had some Speedwell parts that dropped the steering column and tilted the seat and moved it back a bit to suit my frame better.

Dia's Firefly brought back memories because they are a similar size and we went camping with the Mini as well, but nothing as ambitious as Northern BC. We moteled it to California.
