When I was in high school a friend of mine had a original Mini, about the size of a sardine can,I loved it!
I spent a OK summer in Israel, and my brother’s friend David, had one, we went all over the very small country, those 2-3 months,four of us crammed in the car,again I loved it! When the Mini came on the market last year, I had to have one, I drove a crap rental for 11 weeks waiting for it.
It is much bigger than the Mini of old, and safer too. I was driving and another Mini approached me, the guy waved, I waved back. I had entered a secret club. I don’t remember anyone nodding at me in my rental car, except, maybe to say why? It is the first time I have had a car that has personality and stops like the Autopia cars at Disneyland.
I have taken a photo with my kids Baby at the wheel (don’t try this at home), and Chesterfield ready for a ride.The SUV Backlash starts here!
