Someone gave me this recently
#1

He knows I am quite partial to the old Airfix/MRRC Mini.
Question is, who/what was "Team Hack"

Sadly I dont have the specific answer you need - I knew a STephen Hack - so it is either a surname or acronym for the team.

I must say I agree with you and have been collecting quite a few of the old airfix cars. Some of Barry Boors cars and others - just 'normals'.

Like the patina of your find!!

Just the saloon cars, particularly the Minis (I must have about 20), the early F1s are not my favorite type of car.
It seems Airfix minis were often used as a basis for all sort of interesting scratchbuilt chassis, FWD, 4WD, etc...
I'll post pictures one day.

Possibly in the sense of being a "hack" as in being uncouth or rough around the edges?

I think uncouth is the clue, but a man far ahead of his time (watch BBC3). Here are a couple of pictures showing the stuff written on the roof.

The thing about this Mini that impresses me most is that it still has the boot lid handle.  No doubt a psychiatrist would find the text interesting.
