Here she is my little mini Posted by Hello
We did put the flag on the roof in aug 2002 ... I needed to get
a car that was good on petrol. Well found this one and though ohh bet
I cannot even fit my long legs in there ... low and behold I could..
Well then you think ohhh look its so cute (had not watched Italian Job yet)
Its great little car and its an automatic, not that it mattered I would have
prefered a manual but hey and just after I got the car I had to redo my
licence here to drive a manual even thought I had a manual in Canada.
I had to redo the licence, couldn't use this one as its an automatic so
the guy who I was taking a few lessons off did not want me to take his
during the rush hour run.. sooo I had to go and rent (hire) a car...
how bizarre this was a few years ago now but thought Sandra would
like to see my car.

I think minis are such cute cars. I'm seeing more and more Mini Coopers over here in the States. I live in D.C. and they seem like the perfect city car for commuting. I'm pretty tall though so I don't know about the comfort factor.

Hey, I LOVE that car. Did you know I always wanted one of those, Union Jack and all?! (I'm a car freak.) The closest I came to having one of these babies was the Austin America I had back in the late 7O's. It was blue and had white racing stripes :o) I think I still prefer this cool original version to BMW's new expensive hottie! (Especially since BMW bought the rights to the Austin Mini from Rover, and then left them to flounder, but that's another story...)
