Great choice, Eric. I'm sure she will enjoy her new Mini.Scarbrs said:The wife and i took some advice we got from you guys and classic mini owners we meet today. And My wife is now a proud owner of a 2002 Red and white BMW Mini. We wanted a daily driver for her and a classis isnt reliable for that plus no air bags so not safe ither. Not to metion that its kind of hard to find one locally. So thanks guys see you around the mini forums
Thats funny.. I had a Calloway Turbo MR-2 that I was racing on a long stretch of sunday morning highway. It was a modified 280Z I was about 2 car lengths ahead at 100+ when I hydroplaned. I did a james bond 360 and ended up right behind him. I had to pull right over so my g-friend could pee. When we got back on the road 2 miles ahead the Z was pulled over by a state trooper. That was one one of many close calls in that car.joey said:I have fond memories of the mini.
Back in the early 70's I was living in London and borrowed a mini to see the movie Taxi. It was drizzling and I was driving with my Spanish au-pair girl friend. I was driving real fast and entered a large roundabout at too high of a speed and did a complete 360 spin out and kept going. Didn't even stop the car. I always think of that 360 spin-out when I see a mini.
Scarbrs, I am sorry I missed this thread when you posted it originally. Here is a very old photo of the Cooper S my brother & I used in club motorsport. It is a Mark 1, 1969 "S" and my brother still has it in storage. His car has the engine built to full race specs and goes like madScarbrs said:Anyone here have a vintage Mini.
