Just Another Set of Minilites?

It's amazing what you can pick up on eBay. Here's what looks like a really tatty set of Minilites a previous owner decided to paint red. However, these are magnesium Minilites that have spent the past 20 years or so on a TR6 down Salisbury way. The seller had owned the wheels since 1985 and was told they had come from Abingdon Special Tuning Department. Apparently they'd come off a car that had "competed in a Monte Carlo Rally" or something. When I suggested it was maybe the World Cup Rally, he said, "yeah that's it". The tyres aren't bad either. Ho hum...
