We recently went to a British car show. There were new MINIs and old Minis. We saw DeLoreans, yes, they’re British too. And a great bunch of MGs. Mgs started me off loving British cars. I wanted a MGBGT when I was in high school. I would walk down Pacific Coast Highway and drool at the shiny little cars and knew one day I would have to own a British made car. No matter what TopGear has to say about them! ;o) One of the things people say about MINIs is you get more smiles for the mile. I believe it. When I’m driving I get waves and smiles from all sorts of people. It’s fun to drive too!
Who doesn’t enjoy looking at the workmanship display when looking at vintage cars. I think of the artisans and craftsmen working to refine the “definition” of a certain car. Morgan, for one had the best looking emblems, from which Mini also took to the “wings” format of an emblem design along with many other car companies.
One of the most famous Mini drivers, beside Minnie Driver herself, is Mr. Bean. Who doesn’t recognize that guy when he’s climbing out of a Mini. So I had to take this shot:
