Who doesn’t love a Mini, who doesn’t have a Mini story?
This is simply a brilliant car, so it may not be the best performer but that’s easily improved. The handling is what sets the Mini apart. It’s just fun.

It was my first car, and I will own it again one day.

Pros:
Fun

Cons:
Needs work

Most Visceral Thrills Of Any Car I’ve Owned —

I had coveted this car for many years and when the opportunity to buy a second car came
up, I launched on it. Not a cheap buy at $9K but the body and interior had been fully
restored and it had a stunning and expensive paint job. It had a 1275 Cooper S engine
bored out to 1310cc, front discs and a couple of other little things, but was mostly stock
otherwise.

Man, what a blast this car was to drive! In 18 years of driving, probably my favorite all-time
most fun moments were in this car, most notably a drive into the Sunshine Coast
hinterlands on incredibly winding roads. I had a numb feeling of joy and a stupid grin on
my face for the whole drive.

All good things go bad though and lil’ Blue began to break down at every opportunity. I
needed reliable transport and this wasn’t it in the end. If I could’ve afforded it, I would’ve
kept it on as a hobby car, and I still miss it several months later. It was a beautiful car and
drew a lot of admirers. Sold it for what I bought it for, so not a bad investment.

Pros:
Awesome handling, zippy, park anywhere, fantastic looking, a piece of history

Cons:
Crap electrical system, finnicky, either all-go or no-go
