Welcome to the 2000 mini register forums!

Hi & Welcome to the 2000 mini register forums.

The aim of the 2000 mini register is to trace and to preserve details of the last of the classic minis ever made.

The Cooper Sport 500 register has been in existence since 2003, and continues to track the very last 500 minis ever made.  The registers are there to allow owners to discuss, meet and share information of these special cars.   The register aims are to ensure the history of the cars are preserved and to help future owners confirm potential purchases are the genuine article.

Whilst the 500's have had a register for some time, the other 2000 classics of equal importance to the mini's last year of history had nothing, with the exception of the Cooper Register who do hold a register for all Rover Coopers.  

All the Classic Cooper Sports were of identical specification to the 500's, the last Coopers were made in smaller numbers than the 500, and the classic Se7ens were equally as rare and have no specific club or register until now.

Also of interest are the left hand drive non-UK cars, such as the Knightsbridge.

Already many of these 2000 built cars have been broken up for spares as many fetch more money in bits than they do as complete cars.  The late Rover minis do seem to suffer quite badly from the dreaded rot, which sees many cars scrapped and broken up as it is not always cost efficient to refurbish them.  Mini owners often spend thousands restoring their pride and joys, but not all are so lucky.

How many of the last 2500 classics and 500's are still in one piece is not known and is a constantly changing figure.  The registers will help trace the cars and gather statistics on such matters.

If you have a mini of 2000 vintage, please get in contact to register your car to help preserve history.  We can work out from chassis numbers how far from the end of production your car was made.  Visit the 'register your interest' page on the 2000 mini register website -

Having as many cars registered as possible will also allow us to organise some fantastic events in the future bringing many of these last classics together in displays and other events such as scenic tours around Britain and Europe.

Enjoy the forum, website and most of all your minis!

Regards, Andy
